Sometimes we need reminders of how good we have it,
We can get bogged down in the minute details of living,
Or we can listen to the talking heads around us and believe that there is nothing but gloom and doom…
But as we all know, if we got up this morning,
It is a good day, and there are so many things we take for granted,
Yesterday I was talking to an associate and she mentioned how she rarely got a good,
Night’s rest,
I laughingly said that I fall asleep before my head hits the pillow and usually,
Don’t wake up until seven hours later, unless I have had lots of water,
She smiled, saying, ‘Must be nice…’
I was puzzled and it must have shown on my face,
I was thinking about how nice it would be if I got nine hours, :)
She told me that to feel so comfortable and relaxed that I could climb in bed,
And sleep through the night without tossing and turning or thinking and worrying all night must be nice,
I thought... it is,
With the exception of when my kids were out late,
I have never spent much time tossing,
I say my prayers, turn it over to God and go to sleep,
But I accepted what she said and thought about the blessing in it,
That with all the stuff that is going on in the world,
I can crawl between my sheets and rest,
Is a blessing,
To not have to be so consumed with ‘stuff’…
And I am grateful for that,
To have a home life that is filled with love and peace,
Is a beautiful thing and is nine-tenths of the law,
Because when that is working,
The other stuff doesn’t seem to be that big of a deal,

Be Blessed,

To be able to fall asleep as soon as you head hits the pillow is a blessing, I'm getting there...

see I wasnt even looking at as a blessing, I was under the impression that sleep was a natural...I was taking another blessing for granted and needed someone to wise me...this morning when I sat on the side of my bed praying, I remembered to thank God for blessing me with peaceful sleep...

GURL..if I get a good nights sleep its..well I dont know because I havent had one in AGES. Last night I was so tired, I think I went to sleep about 9 or so but woke at 11 something. I did go back to sleep but woke up all through the night. I now have a headache. So yes, you are blessed to be able to sleep like you do.

I have good days and bad days (usually when I am in prayer about something and I get up to walk the floors and pray) but I can honestly say.. when I hit the pillow I am sleep...
