Raining and Resting
I'd been feeling tired lately, but still had a long to-do list for my day off. However, when I awoke to a thunderstorm in the morning and the sky remained gray and threatening, my to-do list became far less important. Instead, I replaced my energetic list of so-called important tasks with reading, resting and finally a nap. There's nothing so decadent for me as to succumb to slumber in the afternoon when it isn't brought on by a cold or illness. To simply make a nap a priority is heavenly to me. On that day, I truly needed the nap to take away the overwhelming fatigue from a busy week. It revived me -- mind, body and soul. Unlike the song's lyrics about rainy days getting me down, this one perked me right back up.
