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
