LAST NIGHT MARK GAVE ME, AT MY REQUEST, A CLOCK W/ BIG, RED NUMBERS, ON MY NIGHTSTAND. IT WAS A PLEASANT SURPRISE THAT MADE ME HAPPIER THAN I EXPECTED. I KNEW IT WOULD HELP ME KNOW HOW LONG I WAS AWAKE AT NIGHT (IT IS NOT UNCOMMON FOR ME TO STARE AT A WALL & JUST THINK AFTER I AM TURNED-IT SEEMS LIKE 1-2 HOURS), I DREAMED OF BEING ABLE TO HELP MARK W/THE BURDEN OF WAKING UP TO GET KIDS OFF TO SCHOOL, & NOW I WOULD KNOW WHAT TIME I WOKE UP (I USUALLY ATE & GOT READY TO START MY DAY BEFORE I SAW WHAT TIME IT WAS). SUCH A SMALL THING MADE A HUGE DIFFERENCE! BEING AWAKE AT NIGHT WAS MORE BEARABLE, ETC.
I AM SHOCKED AT HOW HAPPY THIS MAKES ME. WHAT IS MORE, IS I KNOW THINGS HAVE BEEN HARD ON MARK LATELY-NO THANKS TO EMOTIONAL ME-BUT HE STILL DID THIS FOR ME!
I know for me, knowing what time it is in the middle of the night when I can’t sleep helps me get my bearings. Because I can’t see worth beans without my glasses, I have a clock with huge red numbers as well.
It’s great about moving your left leg! You are more determined than anyone I know. What a blessing that is.
