My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.
My “big present” last Christmas, the gift my husband and kids chipped in to get me, was a Natural Daylight Alarm Clock. (If you’re not familiar with these, they are cool.*)
This clock is really helping me get up in the morning, something I’m not so good at doing! The box said that it works with your body’s natural rhythms, and I think it truly does. The light slowly gets brighter and brighter until my alarm “goes off” with the sounds of chirping birds. I didn’t think the birds would be enough to wake me (I’m the kind of person who incorporates the song playing on a radio alarm into my dreams), but the light has me all primed to wake up and my eyes open at the first little chirp.
