She sat in bed waiting for the tiredness to entrance her. Nightlight on, she let the thoughts of her past run through her head. All of her fears and triumphs realized. She wasn’t finished, she could feel that. She wasn’t ready to sleep either. Her mind thinking about work, about family, about love all at once.
She picked up her tea cup and sipped on it. Letting the warmth take over. She knew everything would be okay and she closed her eyes to feel relaxation throughout every bone in her body. She was in love with the process of sleep. How each night peace would come and in the morning go, just like that. Rest. She had come to appreciate rest.
