Monday, musings…

“Happiness is not the absence of problems,
it’s the ability to deal with them.”

Sometimes, the best way to deal with problems is to take a nap. I often do this. It is a wonder what forty winks can do to solve whatever is bothering you. If nothing else, you feel relaxed, refreshed, rejuvenated, and ready for whatever is to come when you wake up. Or even better, you realize what was bothering you was nothing to worry about anyway.

Thursday thoughts…

I love being able to take
a nap in the afternoon.
Edie Falco

Today’s nap was a need
Not simply a want
A bad mood to be remedied

Something just wasn’t right
Not that anything was wrong
I slept fine last night

But I woke up tired
Not my usual rested self
I felt sorta wired

And quite frankly
Not a good start to the day
I was sorta cranky

I showered and got dressed
Read the paper and did the puzzles
Still felt ugly and distressed

I looked at my two felines
Taking their naps
They were happy and fine

And I thought it’s been a while
Since I had an afternoon snooze
So I got on the sofa with a smile

Wasn’t long and I was asleep
Like the cats happy and fine
Somewhere in dreamland deep

When I was once again awake
Like the cats happy and fine
Naps are wonderful to take

I must remember
There is much good
In afternoon slumber
