Daylight Savings Time

Image by: PIPPA RAGA

Startled awake by my alarm. I reluctantly attempt to disentangle myself from the murky depths far beyond wakefulness.

Through sleep-glazed eyes I hit what I hope is the snooze button on my phone, could be the home button, I do not care. Anything just makes this screeching stop!

Sigh!

I blissfully returned to the depths from which I briefly emerged.

Ah, blessed rest.

The screeching again disturbs the serenity of my resting space and again I battle the murky gloom.

Squinting attempting to see.

The time reads 05:20 AM … I groan ever so deeply in my soul, dear God why…I should be born rich … why am I not rich?

I throw the covers off and, my day begins.

Daylight Savings Time, I have never understood it’s relevance in my life. I know it’s historical significance, but does it really still apply? Still necessary?

If this is truly Daylight Saving … why have I lost my time?

Tomorrow will be better, I think. The body will soon be adjusted and the difference I will notice no longer.

But, just for today…Daylight Savings time has left me bereft!

How do you cope with the time changes?

A Mother’s Heart

Two days ago I visited and read a touching blog post about pregnancy/ infant loss on chewingonlife.wordpress.com. I was so touched about the story of a young mother losing her babies at 23 weeks gestation. You can read her heartbreaking story here on her online magazine at https://www.seekingtherainbow.com/

She has asked me to share her story as a means of healing and bringing awareness of the pain left behind. Please visit her blogs and feel free to share as you may.

Sincere thanks for sharing her story.
