My pre-bedtime Gratitude List:
- Cryingly grateful for a healthy and loving little puppy after a scary day at the vet
- For grapes and apples and fresh herbs
- For friends who offer good and calm advice when I'm frazzled
- For Grant at CrossFit who talked me into doing a second workout today-I needed it
I love the lullaby playing above...here are the words:
Rest your head to sleep.. Rest your head to sleep. I'm next to you to protect you.. Like sweet precious flowers. I lay you down & you sleep. Care is like a golden key.. To sleep like a small bird.. To wake up to sweet bird songs.. If you sleep Mr North Wind.If you sleep Mr North Wind He gives you a boat full of dreams.. A trip to Sifno & Amourgo.. To help rock you to sleep with the soft ocean waves.. He'll sing a lullaby.. You'll sleep and wake.. Wake and grow.. Oh.
*I realized awhile ago that I need a little help saving the nice moments of my days. I tend to lose sight of them as one hectic thing after another happens and my Thanks Before Dreaming bedtime ritual helps me reconnect with things that made me happy throughout the day. Creating the list is a good way to start the sleep journey on a positive note and I hope you'll try it in a journal (or blog if you have one) or even right here.
