Sleep!! Yeh! Ye Ha! Hallelujah!!!

Good Morning!

And a good morning it is. For sometime now (months and months or longer) I have not been sleeping well. Either I couldn't fall asleep or I would wake up multiple times a night. Of course at 43 nature is calling at LEAST once a night.

I didn't realize how bad it was until I got a whole night of uninterrupted sleep last night. I don't like to take alot of medicine, but last night I decided to take a sleep aid. Oh my goodness! It is possible to wake up feeling rested. It has been so long I had forgotten.

I have been blaming my poor husband for his tossing and turning but in fact I may be the " THIEF OF SLEEP"!

Well since I can't and won't take a sleep aid the rest of my life, I quess it is time for a little common sense action. I'm going to be more careful with my caffine intake. Just coffee in morning.

Any suggestions???

I am so thankful that though we may lose sleep at night or feel run down and tired during the day, we can depend on God for strength to get us through. He does provide the ultimate peace and rest for our lives.

"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yolk upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls". Matthew 11: 28-29

  1. Go to Bath and Body and get you some of the lavendar sleep pillow mist! Heavenly!! Seems like it helps me.

  2. Leigh Anne,
    I am so glad you stopped by. Your kind words meant so much. I'm booking marking your blog so I can keep up!

    As far as restless nights go...I've been there too. I have to say that when most of my day is spent in the house and not running around, I don't sleep as well at night. If I can get a walk in during the day I rest so much better.

  3. Exercise and a hot bath after will put you out like a baby.
