When I moved into my place, blinds were all I had shielding my eyes from the outside light of day or streetlights of night. They kept the glare off, but mercy me! Slumber was jacked up every night! These half-baked sleeping patterns continued for many months, and included snoozing during daylight hours. I actually thought I was sleeping well–at the time.
Then a Wonderful Soul bought me light-blocking curtains and offered to install them. Awesome sauce!
Glorious was that first night of sleep without the glow of streetlamps worming in between the blind slats!
Then I slept during the day. That, too, was glorious!
As the India.Arie song says–“It’s the little things… and the joy they bring.”
[*Insert “church hands” or “jazz hands”*] Hallelujah for the small things! I declare today a personal day of thanks for light-blocking curtains!
