Today I am… yawn… thankful for… yawn… jet lag. zzzzz…
Yes, I am thankful for jet lag. Seriously, I am thankful for jet lag. Don’t get me wrong, I am not a fan. Feeling the need to take a nap as soon as I got home from work is not cool. Getting a headache from not getting enough sleep is annoying. Waking up in the middle of the night and feeling wide awake is exhausting.
Yup, totally not a fan of jet lag. That being said, I am really thankful for jet lag, and I can’t help but smile a little every time I feel it. The reason I smile is that it reminds me that I just travelled almost half way around the world, and that is pretty awesome. I’m exhausted and thrown completely out of whack because I was able to accomplish one of my dreams and Becky started one of hers. A couple of days of minor discomfort is well worth an experience like that, and I’m thankful that each yawn reminds me of our adventure.
