What is better than ending a productive day with the feeling of accomplishment? You can relax and reflect on the joys of the day. Then you can go to bed to rest and recharge. Sleep has a wonderful restorative property that nothing else can replace.
Sometimes , though, I wake up the next morning feeling stiff or achy. My right shoulder that I sleep on has been an aggravation for years. Possibly I sleep too hard and too deep. Maybe I am still a bit tense, even as I am sleeping. Too much to do, perhaps, subconsciously running through my mind.
But I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep. Robert Frost
Our dog, Maggie, has been with us for almost four years. She was a nervous wreck when we “rescued” her and brought her home. Since that time she has gone from being afraid of her shadow to being quite well adjusted, generally only barking when someone comes to the door.
And she lives a pretty good life, restful and relaxing. She knows how to sleep. For all her anxiousness at times, when she relaxes, she does it well. I’ll bet HER shoulder isn’t sore when she wakes up. She likes to sleep on our bed during the day, and when you see her there, it looks like she has melted into the covers.
A well-spent day brings happy sleep. Leonardo da Vinci
