Ode to a Mattress
Beautiful reflection -- and good for you! I've slept on a memory foam mattress that seemed to remember too much and kept me in those valleys. I've slept with a man with restless leg disorder that kicked me across the bed in his sleep. (I got out and crept back to bed on my husband's side until he kicked his way out of the bed.) On a practical side, a new mattress and peaceful sleep without interruption is perfect. But I know your heart misses him -- and sharing a mattress with him before you had valleys and his pain and suffering and need for you. Take care.
