When the sun comes up and I need just a little more time for me, I leave the curtains drawn, the lights stay off and find quiet to start my day. I sit in my favorite chair, lay my quilt made of all my husband’s shirts across my lap, and get my pills together with the water to wash them down. Now I am ready to turn my computer on to find out what has happened in the world while I soundly slept last night and read emails that tell me the best buys. By this time my sweet birds are beginning to make their waking up soft noises. The sun shines in as the curtains are pulled back. Now the whole room is filled with morning chatter with the birds, the sound of cooking in the kitchen and I am ready for my day.
You would never want to see me if I didn’t take my pills. It’s not a pretty site,
