Some people are greeted with nuzzling kisses as they wake from sleep. Or a cup of tea if a bed partner is an early riser. Or perhaps a sleepy/energetic/frightened child climbing in beside them. Or an alarm clock that keeps the day in regular order. Perhaps even noisy country chickens, lets the neighbourhood know the day has begun.

pawing at my legs, yawning and barking at me, telling me I’ve been away sleeping for forever!
He bursts through the front door each day and searches my room for me. His expression reminds me of children on an Easter egg hunt. And even though we go through this every day, he makes each morning feel unique and special.
