Now I Lay Me down to Count Sheep

-A A +A
By James L. Snyder

 All my life, sleep has been a most trusted companion. I never leave home without it. It does not matter where I am or what I am doing, I can sleep at the drop of a hat.

 For years, I have heard of people who had problems sleeping at night. I have never been one of those people. I can sit down in a chair and in a few winks, the snoring machine begins. I can never understand people who could not sleep. I always thought they were kind of joking about the whole scenario. Then it happened to me this week.

 Whatever led up to this occasion, I am not sure, but all of a sudden, I found myself in bed at night and my eyes would not close. Every time I closed my eyes, they snapped open almost violently. I tossed. I turned. I did everything I could think of but nothing seemed to help me go to sleep. This is the first time something like this has ever happened to me. No matter what I did, I could not go to sleep. I lay quietly staring up at the ceiling. Nothing seemed to work.
