i had a mentally, physically and emotionally exhausting day yesterday. i was drained. i crawled into my bed with almost a sob of relief that it was over.

but sleep was not the balm of gilead i had sought. restless sleep fraught with fragments of dreams, i tossed and turned all night, only to wake up at 6 am this morning. 6 AM. ON A SATURDAY. grr. needless to say, i was not a happy camper. i rolled back over for another couple hours of fitful sleep and woke up feeling unsettled. and it was gray outside. i desperately wished for some sunshine, which isn't often granted here in wintry seattle. but look! what's peeking through the trees? could it be? it is! the sunshine has made an appearance this morning. all of a sudden, this morning doesn't look quite so bleak as it once did. amazing how that little change has made the rest of my day feel possible, surmounting my sleep deprivation and prickly mood.

since i realize how fleeting this moment can be, i will leave you in cyberspace now and enjoy what today has become.
