It seems like I spend every morning trying to get my 14 year-old daughter up out of bed and off to school. Some days are easier than others.

Mom did the same thing with me. I hated to get up out of my warm bed. Most mornings Mom would yell at me to wake up.

“GET UP OR YOU’LL BE LATE FOR SCHOOL!”

As a student at Holy Name of Jesus, I was late often. Probably late more than any student; this with living right across the street from school.  I was lazy. Didn’t want to do anything.

What kid likes to get up anyway?

I was never a morning person; to this day I still struggle with it.  If it was up to me, I’d sleep in every day.

As a teenager I hated getting up.

For a short time I was enrolled at John Jay, I loved the 12 noon to 5 pm session.

Thank God all that changed.

Respectfully,
