My arms aren't that hairy.

My arms aren’t that hairy.

Today I am thankful for sleep. More to the point, I am thankful for being able to listen to my body’s internal clock as opposed to our alarm. Today, I am also particularly grateful that my daughter’s internal clock woke her up even later than mine…nearly nine!

When I allow myself to get the sleep I need, and listen to my body, it’s amazing how everything that hurts does so a little less, and anything that might have bothered me seems less significant.Canker sores, the little white flags my body sends up to my mouth

when I push it too hard, diminish quickly with adequate sleep.

And for this, I am grateful.
