Maybe not early to some, it was light out, the birds were chirping, the cat wanted to be fed. (well, our cat wants to be fed not matter what time the first person is out of bed.....)

But this morning, I woke up and just couldn't get back to sleep. My mind started racing with all the things I hadn't accomplished, all the things I had to do, all the projects started but not finished, the bills that had to be paid, and the stress of how we were going to pay them.

Perfect, I thought. Just like me. In the fog I am, I thought. I have completely stalled. I am sitting still, I don't have a clear line of sight. Visibility is reduced to obscure what lies ahead in the road for me.

What clears the fog? It depends on what kind of fog it is. The fog around here usually clears in the late morning, after it warms up. That means the fog I see out the window should be gone in a few hours. But what about MY fog? That is more difficult to predict.

I expect my fog will clear too, and then I will be able to see clearly what is down the road for me. I will see the path to take to accomplish all the things I have to do. I will figure out how we are going to pay the bills.
But it is still foggy, and it is thicker now than when I started. So I will sit back and take the dense moisture in. I will embrace it. I will hope to come out of it with an even clearer vision than before I entered into it. I just hope I don't get lost in the fog.
