A Letter to Sleep

Dear Sleep,
I know we've had our ups and downs over the years. Sometimes I haven't appreciated you as much as I should have. Or, sometimes I have taken you for granted. Thus, I understand why you haven't been around much lately- I would be that way too. As of right now I make this pledge in hopes that you will know how much I need you. I promise to be better to you this time around as two weeks without you around has shown me how much better my life is with you. My head is clear, my problems do not feel as overwhelming, and teaching children hours a day is less of a practice in trying not to bite their heads off. I miss liking my job, being able to think clearly, and drive without the fear that my lack of focus will get me into a wreck.

As you see Sleep, I have been doing a lot of thinking these past few days. And, I want you back desperately. I hope this little message will resonate with you and you will embrace me once again tonight. I miss you oh so much.


PS- If I keep going without you I will probably go postal. Just something to keep in mind as I don't think you would want that on your conscience. ;-)
