52 Blessings—Sleep



I love that the body shuts down and sleeps. I think it is marvelous that it knows how far it can turn down the lights, but still stay alive. I think it incredible that the body heals and rejuvenates while it is sleeping. I’m grateful we don’t have to stay alert and awake 24-7. I am very grateful for the rest of sleep.

I love sleep! When I was in high school my buddies after a long day at school would have sleeping parties. Sometimes we'd skip 4th period to get an early start on the party.

It is amazing how are bodies can do all that healing while asleep. Also, look at those amazing pillows that Calvin is using. I wonder where I could get some. =)

Love it! Great photos to illustrate your point.

I am also grateful for the body's ability to shut down and rejuvenate. Sleep feels soooooo good.

Sleep is for sure a blessing Especially when you have only had two hours of it last night! Happy New Year to you Jane!

I often think it's funny that our bodies need to sleep, but I am so very fond of it too. I actually slept great last night and feel like a new person today!
