If you work during the day, are in school, or have to wake up early you’ll understand me in this post. So far this summer I haven’t gotten many chances to sleep in. I’ve had to run here and there and everywhere; being my normal busy, sleep-deprived self. For you out there in a similar situation you must understand the bliss and warmth experienced upon getting that one day to sleep in long and well, especially if you haven’t in a while.
This weekend I think I may have experienced my first “sleep-in” since the summer started. Don’t these times make you feel awesome? Picture it if you will:
You roll over from your comfortable mass of sheets and pillows to a warm, sunlit room with a feeling of groggy refreshment. You open your eyes to see the glowing red letters on your clock or to hear a parent saying that it’s past eleven. If you’re lucky, you may even reach twelve or one. You close your eyes one last time to say goodbye to that great dream and slowly slide out of bed. Does that feel awesome or what? Next time you sleep in, think how so many people had to get up bright and early and trudge on their daily duties while you got to stay in your warm cocoon. Lucky you
