Restless Nights

I used to think that when someone was sick the night brought rest.  That has not been my experience in the hospitals and often since I came home.  I would wake often and long for the dawn.
In looking ahead at some future Mass readings here's one from Job 7 that I could own:
"Troubled nights have been allotted to me.
  If in bed I say 'When shall I arise?'
  then the night drags on
  I am filled with restlessness until the dawn." 
Thank God lately I have been having mostly rest-full nights.
