The Big Sleep

Updated on May 19, 2013

Never Taken For Granted

When everything in your life is going good

It is time to go to bed early and catch some extra rest

Refresh your body and cleanse the soul

Letting your mind know

You are very thankful for all the jobs that your body and mind have completed

All the endless tasks with utmost effeciency and accuracy

When you awake it will be a new day

New challanges and new aspirations

With Gods help may I keep healthy and happy

To focus on the things in my life that make my life worthwhile and exciting

To keep working on living my life simple and stress free

Sharing the real joys that come naturally

      Nellieanna Wishing you a good sleep where you and I may dream the same dream.You seeing such beautiful colors that only nature could make.With every animal in the world roaming free through out the land.I am just smiling and enjoying every sight.Feeling so grateful you and I have found this moment to share and through the powers of observation we both can make an interesting hub tonight.Words that come alive with every stroke.Pictures of beauty that go far beyond time and space.Just when you think life has reached it's limit you now know that would be impossible and experiencing life is something we all yearn for.

      Lovely, lovely, my friend. Uplifting. Sleep is good, no matter how the day has gone. Quality of sleep matters, too, almost as much as amount!

      Great hub!

      That's the best thing - to experience joy naturally and with the Lord guiding us it's the greatest feeling

      kidscrafts I did go out like a light and I slept wonderfully.You also need proper sleep when your doing arts and crafts because you need to be neat,accurate and make sure you cut the right size.Lack of sleep makes you edgy and aggrivated.Get some rest.Most of all you have to want to have fun.FlourishAnyway I find quick cat naps during the day help.Just in case you don't have time to get to the Big sleep.Sleeping is one of my favorite past times.Dim Flaxenwick You can still dwell on the negative but first enjoy the million good things in your life.If you need help I am willing to share.Lend an ear.Can you hear me .I start with the alphabet and work through my A's, then go to the B's and right down to the Z's .I am smiling at you because your doing such a good job.Keep up the good work.If your not to tired when your done fire away at all the negatives you can say.Kathryn Stratford You tell it like it is.A nice change and a great joy having fun with our brains instead of arguing with friends.To everyone a wonderful thank you and a great night.

      I love how getting restful sleep restores us, and the new day feels so great, and full of possibilities. It's very important to get enough sleep, especially when we use our minds and bodies so much over the course of the day.

      Sleep is for sure important! You needed probably more as well because you worked hard to remove your tree!

      Enjoy this nice Sunday of rest!

      ladydeonne You covered it all.Thanx for reading , sharing and enjoying all the wonders of life.May today be one of good fortune and love.DDE It is funny how we all sleep six or more hours a day but we all talk very little about it.When we work about the same amount of time and we can't get it out of our minds.Thanx for reading and making my day fun.

      Dream On,

      You are so right that we should not take the many wonderful things in our lives for granted. We all experience miracles in our lives on a daily basis.

      Waking up in itself is a miracle. I like that you express gratitude for "all the jobs that your body and mind have completed

      All the endless tasks with utmost effeciency and accuracy."

      The practice of gratitude brings us even more things to be grateful for.

      Each day is a new day. Yesterday is gone. Living our lives in a way that brings us joy gives us the strength and wherewithal to face each day's challenges. Thanks for the reminder!
