Back story on bedroom remodel. I sleep in the smallest room in the house. I have a cpap machine and oxygen assist for medical issues. For the last 4 years I was sleeping on my Daddy's old mattress that was already 20 years old. For an overweight woman with fibromyalgia issues, it was pure torture and provided no comfort. Fred has the master bedroom and the king size bed that is the perfect firmness for him. He is very happy. Anyway, since we were so blessed this year, Fred insisted I get a new bed and mattress for my room to see if I could get better sleep. Off to American Signature Furniture in Pinellas Park, FL. We chose a bed that has four drawers of storage underneath and a bookcase headboard in an espresso finish.
mattress, extra deep. Now mind you, I am vertically challenged and this is a TALL bed. I have to use a footstool to climb in each night. It is like sleeping on a cloud and it has been wonderful for these old bones.

Sounds, thoughts, pleasures and pain, the moments and days of your life, the people you love, will all come and go. Whatever is born will die and whatever is created will at some point disintegrate. It is important to find a space in your world that will give you comfort and peace, to rejuvenate and refresh. Constant strife, pressure and worries, will only exacerbate illness and discomfort. Creating an oasis to practice the fine art of relaxation is indeed a luxury that few gift themselves. I'm only just learning to appreciate the necessity of clutter-free living. It certainly frees the mind to focus on emotional and spiritual issues instead of worrying about the mess and clutter.
