Nap Day

It was a beautiful day to sleep. The morning air was cool and it looked like it could rain at any moment. I'd gotten up to feed the kids and prepare them for school. Bookbags packed with snacks and folders, I hugged them and sent them into the carpool van.

"YES!" I stretched as I walked back inside. It had started to drizzle a little bit. The cat rubbed against my leg as I walked down the hallway toward my bedroom. I crawled back into bed and pulled to covers up.

I had called my colleagues to check the census to see what the likelihood of me being needed to work that night. "I'd get some rest", she said. So I did.

In spite of a phone call, a barking dog and a cat trying to play on my computer, I slept really, REALLY well.

"If nothing else", I thought, "it will get me a little caught up on my sleep."

And so it did!

Thank you God for sleepful days....
