Noticing Trends...

Once again I felt like falling asleep during history class this morning, and Jake and I finally figured out why. During the week, Wednesday's are the only days I have to get up an hour earlier so I can be at the school for 8:15 am. Every other day of the week I have to be there at 9AM. It seems silly that a simple hour can throw off my body so much. Even as I sit here typing this all I can think about is how much I want to be sleeping right now.

It doesn't help that my mind decided to have a mental marathon during my dreams between 5 and 7:30 this morning. They were probably the most intense and emotionally taxing dreams I have had in a while. There were three of them, and they sort of melded into one, and although I do not care to go into detail here, I found them to be quite sobering; most definitely some things that I need to pray about further.

Just want to thank you again, Nana, for faithfully posting comments on my blog :) I know a few people that read them regularly, and it's nice to have visual recognition of that. I could probably name all the people who I know read my blog, and because of that I can safely say I love you all!

Have a great day... and enjoy the sun and the beautiful fall November day, without snow, because I know I am, especially in the comfort of my sleep.

Hi Ash
Thanks again for your blog.

Our bodies are funny mechanisms and often react in ways we wish they wouldn’t when they do it at inconvenient times.

The reasoning behind your sleepiness in your history classes could very easily be due to your earlier rising.

I know when we have to go on our trips on the Go train or bus and I have to be up extra early to be ready, by the time we finally the train or bus gets underway, I am out like a light within the first few minutes and generally sleep all the way to Toronto!

As for dreaming at night, I just don’t seem to do that much anymore but in the past I have had dreams like yours that can be so vivid and disturbing even after you awaken.

That was nice of you to mention my replies but it is not a hardship for me; rather a way to let you know that I do read them and I want it to be an encouragement for you to continue.

Sometimes more people than even you know, do read them as well and also get enjoyment even though they may never make a response.

I hope you enjoyed this lovely day again and that you had a chance to have a little sleep to catch up on your rest.
Lots of love always

In closing, I thought you might enjoy this
