I don’t think most of us appreciate a lot of things until they are gone. I know I’ve never appreciated sleep as much as I did last night. Only had six hours, but it was life giving. I felt refreshed this morning (although I would like to have slept a bit longer).
But today at work I was energized by my campaign meeting and speaking at Rotary. I draw my energy from things like that. It is my stage. And I’m very good at those things.
Dad is still in the hospital. He is hoping to go home tomorrow. I am hoping he stays here one more day and then goes to rehab. I mentioned that to him and it made him cry. I explained that it would only be a few days until he was stronger and back to sleeping again. We will work it out.
On a down note, Warren’s 27 year old nephew was killed in a car accident this morning. Fortunately his young daughter survived.
Hug your loved ones. Life is fleeting. Tell them you love them often.
Today I’m thankful for sleep mostly.
