Thankful Thursday: Sleeping Stuff

Thankful Thursday bannerI’ve learned that if I don’t get the sleep I need, my body takes the sleep I need–most frequently when I’m behind the wheel.

As a result, I’ve learned to listen to the warning signs telling m it’s time to pull over for a nap.

I take quite a few of those naps since I’m now commuting three days a week–and more often than not have an added weekend trip too.

This week, I’m thankful for…

cell phone alarms I can set for 20 minutes

a seat that reclines almost horizontal

a little pillow that hangs out in my trunk (except when it hangs out in my back seat

a warm blanket that eases the unexpected Thursday night chill

a convenient commute for pull-off parking

There’s a little town about every 10-15 minutes along my usual commute from Columbus to Grand Island and back. Which means I’m usually close enough to make it to one of them. Once inside town, I can pull off on any number of parking lots (or even just along a side street) for my nap.

Of course, I’m also VERY thankful that I have a cozy bed with pillows and blankets (even an electric one-useful for when Anna needs AC upstairs but it makes it too cold for me downstairs :-P).

Sleep. It’s good.

I’m thankful God has given me the grace to sleep off the road rather than on it–thankful that I and the many other drivers on Highway 30 are alive (and unharmed).

  1. YOW! I am glad that you are smart enough to pull over and take naps. That is scary dangerous. Sleep. It IS good! I hope you get a chance to catch up on some very soon! (Of course, by the time I’ve read this post – maybe you have. But I kinda don’t thin so. ;)
