Today, I slept. I don’t often have that luxury, as I have a great deal of difficulty sleeping. Apparently, though, feeling ill is good for me and lets me sleep. Go figure. Blessings come in strange characters, I guess.
I am reminded of my little gramma’ and how we used to get such a chuckle frrom her sleeping difficulties. She had a sleep disorder to the point that we never knew when she would fall asleep. Many times, she would have a forkful of food lifted to her mouth and her mouth wide open, when without warning, the need to doze would overtake her. My poor gramma’. There she would be with her mouth open wide, eyes closed and gently snoring. It must have been awful for her. She could never plan because she never could set a proper schedule.
I wonder if, in the hereafter, she has managed to regulate her waking hours and her sleep time? I hope so. She was always so tired that I sincerely hope she has been able to catch up on her rest.
Are you plagued by difficulty in your sleep pattern? If you are one of those fortunate people who lives by some sort of a schedule, be thankful. There is more to that than meets the eye. Keep a hug on.
