Universal appeal

You can tell that you are getting old when you are excited about getting a mattress for your birthday.  We finally have a keeper.  I have to give a shout out to The Mattress Firm for not harassing us about our exchange.  We ended up with a Sealy Posturepedic Plush, which feels fabulous.  It still is not perfect, but I'm not looking for perfection - just sleep.  There are so many options that I just want to be done with it at this point.  But it made me wonder that with all of the brain power and technology that exists in the world, why have humans still not come up with one mattress that suits every person?

I was reading an article this morning about the healing power of walking in the grass barefoot.  My shoulder still hurts from our old, hard mattress, so I thought I would try it. 

I'm not an outdoorsy person and don't really like for my feet to be dirty, but I have to say that green grass is an amazing creation.  Is there anything else that can feel relaxing and rejuvenating at the same time?  Just looking at it makes me feel better.  Sunshine, colorful leaves, soft breezes.  Nature seems to have a universal appeal.  God was pretty good at coming up with things that are good for all of us.
