Every night, as I walk my dog, I like to number the stars. I think of each one as a special message of love from my Heavenly Father to me. And each night, I count an additional star for a blessing I’ve received that day.
It will not surprise anyone who knows me to hear that I’m grateful for sleep. I was the kid who asked “is it nap time yet?” so sleep and I have been good buddies for a long time.
Still, the peace of my cozy bed and snuggly pets feels even more welcoming than ever these days, as the weather cools here. By the time I go to bed the temperatures are in the fifties, which means I can cuddle with a nice warm blanket and still not have to turn on the heat! It’s such an income-appropriate novelty!!
