From page 78 of Good Housekeeping Magazine November 2013 comes a short clip that I think is SO true!!!
"I Dream of Gratitude"
"It's a time to say THANKS...but not if you skimp on shut-eye. Getting too little sleep my make you more self-centered and less appreciative of the good things in your life, even when you make an effort to count those blessings, reports a study from the University of California, Berkeley. Those closest to you-such as your spouse-are particularly likely to suffer. Not only are you grouchy without enough rest, but you may also lack the energy to focus on your hubby's needs or notice his good qualities, which in turn may make him less appreciative of you, says study head Amie Gordon, Ph.D. To feel genuinely thankful this Thanksgiving, plan extra pillow time-for both of you."
You don't need a holiday to apply this advice. It would be wise, I think, to keep it in mind especially on the days we know we are short on sleep.
