Ever since then I've slept on a couch, a sofa bed, and yes, on the floor at home. I'd never sleep well under those conditions, often waking up every few hours to change sides--at times getting bruised on my hips.
It's hard to imagine over half of my life sleeping that way but that's the way it was…until now.
I bought myself a queen size bed!
It was delivered to my new apartment over the weekend.
It's one of the things I always longed for when I was finally on my own.
I slept in my bed for the first time the night it was delivered. It felt luxurious and comfortable and dare I say, sensual.
I bought plush pillows and expensive bedsheets. It almost felt too extravagant and I had the notion of sleeping on the floor again.
But as I sunk into the softness, I told myself I was worth it and deserved this bed!
So on this day of giving thanks, I'm grateful to finally have a bed to sleep in. For that I'm truly blessed. May all of you be as blessed as well.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
