Z ~ Zzzzz

Early to bed, early to rise seemed to be the motto among the Amish. Nine o'clock was considered to be late.

Even with getting plenty of sleep there was something about the long church services that seemed to put people to sleep. Usually when the second minister started preaching the boys would settle in to get as comfortable as possible to sleep. Married men might try to stay awake, but many of them dozed off.

Women weren't immune to sleeping in church either, but with have babies and little children to care for it didn't happen as often.

For some reason I am always sleepy on Sunday too. I think it has to do with sitting still for so long.

I never seemed to have a problem with staying awake in church. But my husband often dozed off. Good A to Z Challenge. Congratulations on making it to the end.

I see people dozing off in our church too and our services aren't nearly as long as the Amish ones. :-)

I really enjoyed this A-Z series. I learned a lot and I thank you Mary Ann.
Blessings,
Betsy

I'm glad you made it through. Fascinating blog. One of these days I must try looking up your earlier blogs. It would help if you could post links for the ones which talk about your life changes.
