There are two sounds that I love to hear: my husband making coffee and my pets snoring.  Let me explain.  My husband is a firefighter and works 24 hours on and then has 24 hours off.  He leaves for work at 6 in the morning and doesn’t come home until 6:30 am the following morning.  I’m a late-ish sleeper and don’t get up that early so when I hear that coffee brewing from the comforts of my cozy bed, I am filled with thankfulness that he made it home.

The other sound that I find so comforting is when my pets snore at night.  Because we share our room with two cats and a dog, there’s usually someone or something snoring.  The sound of the cats or dog snoring is a little thing that brings a smile to my face because I know that they’re sleeping soundly.  For some reason, the knowledge that the pets are sound asleep makes me relax and it’s easier for me to fall asleep.
