Rest came today in breakfast in bed, provided by Coco, Collie, and Roo. Delicious scrambled eggs and buttered toast were served for two on a tray.
Rest came today in first service and Sunday School being cancelled at church. No morning nursery duty for me and Coco, our once-a-month date with each other and little walkers.
Rest came today in a freshly-plowed street that firmly packed our cars in, causing the digging-out process to take longer than expected. No making it out in time for the 11:15 service.
Rest came today in cinnamon rolls for lunch, courtesy of Steve’s Costco run on Friday. No preparation on my part required.
Rest came today in actual sleep. A much-need, deep-sleeping nap under a fluffy lamb blanket with lots of vivid dreaming.
Rest came today in laughter with my luvvvah, the deep, belly-laughing kind about secrets we share.
Rest came today in an early supper, easy to prepare, ingredients already on hand, a glass of beer to accompany it.
Rest came rushing to me in the mess, inviting me to slow down and receive it.
So I did, and I will continue to do so for a few more hours until day is done and a new week begins, refueled and refreshed by the rest that came.
