When you can’t sleep, the world begins to tilt. You can’t concentrate. Or trust your own judgment. What you would give for a night of blissful sleep.
Finally I slept. I have decided I just cannot take the Hydrocodone. Makes me crazier than a junkyard dog. And sleep is elusive.
Last night I took a muscle relaxer and slept. Oh, heavenly sleep.
Sleep. Such a simple thing to ask for. But sometimes we reach out for it and it just isn’t there.
We are promised nothing in this world. We are here right now, but in a flash it can all be gone. No matter how strong your moorings, the concrete of your foundation can shift and crack at any time.
Which is why all the little moments in life are so important to enjoy. That first sip of coffee in the morning. The spring bulbs pushing up through the dirt at winter’s end.
From trees budding, to the changing of seasons.
Enjoy them all. Those simple moments.
Sit and stare out your window. Take time to reflect on what you have this very minute. What you cherish and hold dearest.
Nothing is permanent. But everything in between is precious.
