I have blogger's block. I have come to write a post several times over the past weeks and I end up just pressing the red X in the top right hand corner and doing something else. I just haven't felt it...but I wanted to cover up my my last post because I was sick of it. Still...nothing to say.
So hmmm...I guess I will just tell my bed...out loud for all the world to hear (because we all know the world reads my blog) that I love it and I couldn't ask for more. It is soft and inviting and just brings me such joy. I can't thank my bed without thanking my pillows as well. I have the PERFECT pillow...one of which I am scared to lose. I went looking for a duplicate at the store the other day but no such luck. I am worried I will have to train my neck, shoulders, back, and cheeks to love a new pillow...so stay with me as long as you can pillow I have now. That is the one I lay on...but I also have one I hug. I have never known what to do with my hands and arms while sleeping...so I solved it by hugging a pillow...and I hug it all night. It is kind of a hassle when I switch positions...but I guess it is my "lovey" I have to have it. On top of those 2 pillows I also surround myself in kind of a "nest" or maybe "barricade" of about 5 other pillows...they are all very necessary and have their special duty...all of which makes for a very pleasurable night.
Where is Josh in this picture?...we usually feet cuddle...once in a while our feet will meet in the middle of the bed...say hello...and then go back to our respectable sides...that is what I love about a King size bed...you can totally disappear and then go visit your spouse when you want to.
Over the past month my bed and I have spent a lot of time together...waaaayy too much time...but I must say that she was a good companion and was patient with me through the hard times.
Last night as I snuggled into the cuddley-ness and just felt like I couldn't get any more comfortable the image of Africa popped into my head. It might be because that actress from Roseanne (the one that played her sister) has a commercial where she was asking me to adopt a child...well it must have gotten to me because I just thought how lucky I was to have my bed. I said a prayer right then for how comfortable I was. I thought of the people in 3rd world countries who go home to a wood shack and lay on the ground. During the day I bet they never say "Well, I am going to go relax and take a little nap"...and then snuggle into luxury. I just got caught up in how incredibly different my life is from theirs and how I take that for total granted...I am beyond incredibly blessed and I am so thankful for my life. I have everything I NEED and most everything I want...so spoiled...so lucky...so blessed...I hope I can remember this when I am boohooing about the bumps I experience along the way...I have it pretty easy...even when it seems hard.
