Today I am thankful for sleep. Sleep is such a wonderful thing. I am grateful that we have sleep as a resource to help refresh us and that it feels so good to go to sleep each night.
I'm thankful that when my kids are older I will have the chance to get more sleep.
Sleep has been hard to come by for a few weeks because of work commitments and a baby who right now is a bit under the weather (and fussing every 5-7 minutes). I'm thankful for the promise of a new day, one where sleep is a possibility. So far this week I've worked about 4x as many hours as I've slept. Think about that for a moment. I've worked (not my "home" job, my actual paid job) 3x as much as I've slept while a typical 8 hr work/8 hr sleep/8 hr funorhomeorfamily schedule would have me sleeping equal to the amount I've worked. Yikes. Things are out-of-balance right now and its making me tired. Like really tired.
And so today I'm thankful that I've slept before and that I'll be able to sleep again sometime.
