Today, again, there were so many things to be thankful for: deep conversations, crispy autumn leaves, good food, a furnace that works . . .
Despite all the possibilities, I'm going to focus in on something I was thankful for today, specifically; something that I am not usually thankful for.
Today I was thankful for an extra hour of rest.
Most years, I dread time shifts on to and off of Daylight Savings Time. Maybe tomorrow and through the week I will get lagged-tired and have a worse attitude (as per normal).
But today, it was a glorious thing. When my alarm clock rang this morning at 6:45, it felt like 7:45. The angle of the sun in the sky looked like 7:45. The air even smelled like 7:45.
On top of that, I didn't need to get up until 8:00, which by the time it arrived almost felt like noon.
I am thankful for an extra hour, a good sleep, and a relaxing morning.
Ha ha ha.
I'm ready for bed now, though!
