The blog sometimes writes itself. I’ve sat here many times not knowing what I wanted to write about. I blog everyday, eventually you’d think I’d run out of things to ideas, but so far, I haven’t. I may not know the direction the post is going but it comes to a point at the end. The very last thing the blog gets is a title. Today is one of those days, I’m writing without a direction or intention. Usually when that happens, I’m going spiritual in my post.
You ever have a dream about your husband, boyfriend, girlfriend etc where they did something really bad and you woke up angry at them? That’s kind of how I feel this morning except I’m not angry. It feels like someone explained something to me in a dream. The act of the person was mean, but instead of being angry or even upset, I feel peaceful. I love to figure out why people or situations come up in a dream. I re-trace my day to see when that person or thought came in that it subconsciously reappeared while I slept. I can pinpoint this to a piece of mail.

Last night I slept great. I woke up rested and peaceful. Amazingly I slept through the night without having to wake up for bathroom trips every few hours. That in itself makes for a wonderful night.
