Chapter 11, Page 27, Book 12
For each new morning with its light, For rest and shelter of the night, For health and food, for love and friends, For everything Thy goodness sends.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
# 27 of 30 things I'm thankful for in November
I am thankful that I do get enough sleep to start a new day. And I am thankful that I do have comfortable place to rest.
I do love my miracle foam mattress. It was a good investment that really didn't cost much at all compared to some mattresses I've seen. One thing about growing older is that these old bones like things soft and comfy.
Nothing of significance is achieved without effort and hard work and weariness.Everyone needs rest. When you don't get enough, nothing seems to go as well as it could. Rest makes us better so that we can be better for others.
But being busy in an endless pursuit of things can leave us empty and hollow and broken inside. The faster we go the emptier we become. To bring our lives under control and realign our priorities we need to pause and just rest.
The pause that REFRESHES improves our attitudes, increases our energy and makes us more positive.
Remember one of the things that steals health and happiness is stress. Take time out. Rest isn't luxury; it's a necessity.
The best six doctors anywhere And no one can deny it Are sunshine, water, rest, and air Exercise and diet. These six will gladly you attend If only you are willing Your mind they'll ease Your will they'll mend And charge you not a shilling.
