Grateful Alphabet

alphebetEver wake up at 3:11 am and can’t figure out why?  Nor does it seem that sleep is within reach?

yeah, me too.

We all have tricks or ideas that we try.  Often times, my brain is just too full of stuff.  Heck, that is the reason, I started writing this blog 981 posts ago.  Geesh, that is a LOT of sleeping through the night.

Okay, I just put on my uber fancy honest hat  (think feathers and ribbons and glitter, lots of glitter)………sometimes, the “go back to sleep” tricks just don’t work.

That’s where this game comes in handy.  If you have tried all the other tricks: flip pillow to cool side, straighten covers, rearrange hair, get out of bed and go do something else, put on fuzzy socks, put on sweet smelling natural hand lotion…you understand…

flower-grass-alphabet-938465I always end with the Grateful Alphabet game.  Never make it to the end.  (however because I have a grand whose name begins with the letter Z,  I always  Say, A, B, C, Z, D, E, F, G…..

This game is easy.  You start with the letter A and say one or two things that you are grateful for beginning with that letter.  Easy peasy, right?  I hardly ever get past L,M,N,O,P.
