Today’s post is short. I’m grateful for my pillow. I use the same pillow every night with my favorite pillowcase made from fabric I purchased in Alaska many years ago. It reminds me of the beautiful part of our world that many may never see. The scenery left me breathless; the fresh fish and seafood made me feel like I’d died and gone to heaven. Why eat anything else when it tasted that good?
But, back to my pillow. It’s not anything special to anyone, but me. It comforms to my sleep position as I squish it under my head each night until I arrange my body in the most comfortable way I can. Some Sundays I make a date with my pillow, along with its companion, my fluffy blanket. We meet in the afternoon and I enjoy the time we spend together.
Sometimes, it’s the little things that bring comfort and refreshment.
Happy Thursday, friends.

I'm a daughter, a wife, a mother, a grandmother, a friend, a sister-in-law, an aunt, an author, a part-time volunteer guitar player, a retired businesswoman, a part-time gardener who loves to talk with people. I have a passion for my faith, my family, and my friends. I love to learn and share what I discovered.
In 2004, we discovered our daughter suffered from a debilitating disease - Paranoid Schizophrenia. I knew nothing about mental illness, but we didn't have the luxury of learning at a pace we could absorb. We had to dive in and hope we learned to swim as we came up for air. Our daughter is now in recovery and I work as a volunteer for NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) to support others who battle mental illness.
I wrote my journey in the book: Broken Brain, Fortified Faith: Lessons of Hope Through a Child's Mental Illness. Ask for it by name at your favorite bookstore or purchase it directly from the publisher, Familius.com, from the Amazon, or Barnes and Noble website.
