Making My Home A Haven is important to me. Sharing homemaking skills. Recipes and food. Bible Studies. This is a treasure chest of goodies. So take a seat. Have a glass of tea and enjoy. You will learn all about who I am.
I spend a few minutes reading my morning devotion. I wanted to have the opportunity to get in a quick workout or do another refreshing task to start my day.
I vividly remember going to Colorado with my family when younger. I would get up early and sit on the front porch of the YMCA in the Rockies. As I sipped coffee in the early morning and gazed at the beautiful mountains surrounding me, I would think: The morning is the most beautiful time of day! I want to be a morning person!
Then I would go back to life and stay the same. Hurried in the morning and often running late.
I came across Crystal’s blog at Money Saving Mom and she would talk about how she would make the most of her mornings. Last summer she did a Rise and Shine Challenge which helped her to get up early and make her mornings more intentional.
I was so intrigued and read her daily morning post. It felt a little silly to be so intrigued by morning schedules, but I think it is what I needed to finally make early rising a habit! I was impressed with what she did every morning…often before I would even roll out of bed.
I combined the push from reading Crystal’s posts with the possibility of starting a blog. I wanted to find an incentive to get out of bed early. I knew that if I wanted to spend time on a blog, I would have to get up early to do it.
My real name is Debra (Debbie Sue). Sarah is a nickname given to me in high school. My husband has always called me that so here in Florida It's all I am known by. I was born and raised in Illinois. My son and I moved to Colorado in 1982. I taught school for 17 years. Then I ran a homeschooling/preschool/daycare until 2006 when I moved to Florida after my son, Bobby died suddenly. He was almost 26. Danny and I live and work at a state park here. I miss the mountains and climate of Colorado. I miss snow and the four seasons. I miss Bobby.
