Saturday night was a night of little sleep. I went to bed at a decent time, but got up later unable to sleep. I rarely have this problem.
Anyway, on the way home from church Sunday I told my family that I might just need a nap. My wonderful husband told me not to try to justify it…that naps are nice and I should definitely take one that afternoon. No explanation needed.
I don’t usually nap. In fact it is very rare that I sleep during the day. There is usually too much on my list and I feel like I have to keep going. Lately however, I am beginning to truly realize that some of that stuff really isn’t so important. Those items on the list can wait. And naps are nice.
After a two hour nap on the couch I felt energized and spent the next three hours in the kitchen making all kinds of goodies. And the world didn’t come to a stop while I slept.
I don’t think I’ll make a habit out of the afternoon nap…but once in awhile when I’m tired I’ll remember the wise words of my husband. And maybe even invite him to take a nap with me.
