Ever-Changing Reflection

Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding... It is the bitter potion by which the physician within you heals your sick self. Therefore trust the physician, and drink his remedy in silence and tranquility.

Final day 26: Z

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!

I'm gearing up to head back to Mom and Dad's to see the fam and eat turkey with all the trimmings until I can eat no more!

Before I headed out, however, I had to post my last gratitude post for "Z." This one's really fitting this morning...

I'm grateful for quality ZZZ's...

Oh man, nothing beats a good night of sleep, and that is what I had last night. Eight, glorious, uninterrupted hours. Unfortunately, it came at a cost: Jed is sick, so he slept in the guest room with the dog, which meant I didn't have any snoring, kicking, hitting or crowding. I'll take it.

I'm even thankful for those afternoon hours when I can indulge in a blissful nap and wake feeling refreshed for the night ahead. Good sleep just makes you feel better. It allows your body to relax and rejuvenate. It's good for your health. It's good for you mind. Ah... ZZZ's... Looking forward to a few more after turkey fest today!

This isn't part of the "script"...

I want to wish all of you reading this -- and your families -- a day full of blessings, thanksgiving, family, friends, love, hope and good food, from the bottom of my heart. I haven't mentioned it in these 26 posts, but I am soooooo thankful for all of you! I never expected people to "follow" my blog (except for my IRL friends, which, ironically, don't read it), and I never expected to make friends with bloggers I read. Thank you for encouraging me, and thank you for reading!
