The healthy reflection of the past week reminded me of last night. The family was over for a summer get together-the rain couldn't damper our delight in seeing eachother. All during the night, my clockside alarm clock, kept waking me, and giving an hourly time report, "It is now 2:00 AM." The first time it woke me I was startled. Usually I just push the button myself to learn the time-saves squinting in the dark. I heard it a few more times, giving me the time during the night. In the morning, with a clearer mind, I could only smile, as I recalled seeing my little 3 year old niece pushing the button on the clock to hear it speak. She had accidentally activated the hourly time announcement. My sleep hadn't been a good one, but just thinking of my niece always puts a smile on my face.
