Sleep tight

As “Sweet Lil” ran out the front door to catch the school bus she said “bye Grandma and thanks for the great nights sleep”.


I was quite curious of that comment. It started to make sense when I went into her room to make the bed.  On the nightstand there sat a half filled  bottle of water.  Now, you make think the explanation for this is “malarkey” but I”ll tell it to you anyway.

The evening before the children were watching a program on Netflix  that was a little bit scary.  The kind with ghosts and hauntings and all that good stuff.  “Sweet Lil”, hides behind the sofa when the scary stuff is going on.  I told her there was no need to hide,  that if she ever gets an unexplainable feeling of something bad nearby just “shoo it away”.  Then I went on to tell her that my Mom always slept with a glass of water near her bed.  She believed that all her guardian angels enjoyed a sip as they watched over her during the night.

I’ve never known my Mom to be wrong.

Warm wishes for big yawns
