My favorite part of each day is right before the sun comes up! As long as I can remember, this has been the case. As a kid, I remember waking up early during the summer and running down the road to my great-grandmother’s house to listen to the animated adult conversations. All of my aunts and uncles, as well as my grandmother, would meet at my great-grandma Carrie’s house to have coffee each morning and there was always something to learn by sitting around and soaking up the stories that were shared. One morning my grandmother asked one of my uncles how he was doing and his reply was “Not too good”. My antennas went up because I knew my grandmother, as spiritual as she was, would convict him of such negative talks but on this particular morning, she simply replied..”You should have seen it coming”.
I will admit, this was not the response I expected and was quite honestly disappointed that the conversation didnt get any more heated than it did. After all, we didnt have cable tv so this morning huddle was my only source of entertainment before everyone dispersed. My granny walked into the kitchen and I followed on her heels to get more insight to what she had uttered. When I got into the kitchen, I asked her what she meant by the phrase “You should have seen it coming”? Her reply stuck with me from that day to this one. She leaned down and told me that “Tomorrow begins today” and since my uncle failed to prepare himself for a good day, he will get what he was prepared for.
