5:57 a.m.-- Alarm goes off. Hit snooze twice for 10 minutes each. I know, I know. It's better to just set the alarm for 20 minutes later. It's so hard though! Or just get up at 5:57 and get something done. Also hard.
6:17 a.m.-- Say a little prayer that God directs me the way I need to go that day.
