The sun sets on another day…
As I looked at the sunset this eve and saw it blossom out of a near impossible shroud of darkness from rain clouds, I was amused how sometimes the little things in life can have such a big effect on us all. It is impossible to consider all the pivot points in life that make us who we are, the doctor who saw someone sick is an easy guess, but the mechanic who dropped his favorite matchbox and saw it break may not be as evident.
As I have said many times and truly believe, we are the product of the sum of all that we have experienced, and this fits all the time but sometimes it is something mundane that we did not even remember that gives us a certain phrase, mannerism, or other approach to life that may well otherwise be lost on everyone.
So it may make you laugh when you realize that “sleep sweet” for me comes from a truly corny love story called “George of the Jungle” and I was always enamored with George and his passion for Ursula and his consistent thoughtful statement “Sleep sweet Ursula”.
So as the sun sets on another day, consider those fun things you do and take a moment to think about where they came from and laugh for a moment with me, laughing is always worth it.
Sleep sweet, love life, and wish upon a star, someone else will be too….
