So many nights I wish for sleep and though my body and being is tired, sometimes exhausted more than usual, I cannot sleep.
I can close my eyes and my mind goes. It’s like a movie that changes from scene to scene every few seconds. Maos.
Sleep restores the body and soul.
Sometimes it is so hard to just slow my mind and make my body completely relax. I get so keyed up and often for no reason. Okay I admit, I do a lot of “my things” at night after everyone is in bed and often my brain is more creative and flexible. I can usually get things done and go right into REM pretty darn quick because I most likely will have to be up for something!
I usually can just fall asleep because I know sleep is precious and it heals and helps me. If a situation calls to be dealt with the next day, I can usually handle what I can and then go to bed and pass out.
Maybe it’s one of the side effects of having a child but when he’s sleeping and it’s late and I know I have to get both of us up in the morning, I will sleep. If I know I have to be at work or get something done I go to sleep as early as I can, like by 11-ish cause I am a night owl, because I am Not a morning person.
I can be cordial and polite, heck I can even get things accomplished and be around other people without saying something rude early in the mornings but oh it’s so much easier and better with just a little sleep!
So my wish for everyone today is to get some fabulous sleep in because believe me it’s precious! I need sleep in order to live better!
Keep Hope Alive!
Oh and I put this little gem on my nightstand, a bit of artwork from the boy that just speaks to me!
