First Morning of “I Wish I Had Seat-Warmers” Season

Good Things

Good morning!

What a wonderful day it could possibly be. Yesterday evening, I was able to attend somewhat of a mixer after work meeting new people, shaking hands and of course kissing babies ha. What a great experience that was. I felt like I was in college all over again. That wonderfully awkward, yet exciting, feeling of being on the brink of an anxiety attack because your lack of familiarity with everyone there. I felt like I had just attended a meeting of an organization for the first time and I was obviously the new one in the crowd. But like I said before what a great experience. I met the CEO, the freaking CEO, of my company. Maybe that is nbd (no big deal) but for me, a 23-year-old girl pretty darn fresh out of college, it was indeed.
what a beatiful day
After that whirlwind of an evening, I had to rush home to feed heifers and give shots to some of the donor cows. After a good hour and a half of manual labor I plopped onto my bed where I would not move another foot for a solid eight hours. All of this back story was to tell you why I woke up freezing my tail off. Since I was seriously exhausted from the day, I forgot that a cold front was supposed to blow in last night and like a dummy I left my window open. Big, big mistake. Woke up at 5 a.m. or so and there was no way in heck I was going to be getting my hiney out from underneath those covers. Don’t think so. So I proceeded, for the next hour, to ignore my alarm clock. Finally, realizing that I don’t really have much of a choice, jumped out of bed and rushed through the normal weekday routine.
Good Things

Even though it is pretty darn chilly this morning, I can’t help but be grateful for the place I am in currently in my life: I have a great job that will really take me places; one of the most loving and supportive families on earth; a legit country lifestyle; an outstandingly-sweet boyfriend; some pretty awesomely-talented friends; and countless other things I have been blessed with.

All of this reminds me so much of the song my mom and dad used to sing to us girls every morning while we would slowly get going for school:

Good morning, morning.
Hello sunshine.
Wake up sleepy head.
Why’d we move that Bojangle clock so far away from the bed?
Just one more minute, that’s why we moved it.
One more hug or two.
Do you love wakin’ up next to me as much as I love wakin’ up next to you?
You make the coffee, I’ll make the bed.
I’ll fix your lunch and you’ll fix mine.
Now tell me the truth do these old shoes look funny? Honey, it’s almost nine.
Now you be careful. Gotta go, I love you. Have a beautiful day.
And kiss the happiest girl in the whole USA.
Skip-a-dee-doo-dah thank you Lord for making him for me.
And thank you for letting life turn out the way that I always thought it could be.
There once was a time when I could not imagine how it would feel to say
I’m the happiest girl in the whole USA.
Shine on me sunshine, walk with me world. It’s a skip-a-dee-doo-dah day.
I’m the happiest girl in the whole USA.
Shine on me sunshine…
