Sentimental Sunday – Naps

Naps have never meant much to me. I don’t remember taking them as a child. I do remember having sick days, where my mom would have us lay down, and try to nap, but I never could. Something about knowing the sun was up, my body would not let me take naps. Now that I’ve become a mom, I love naps! Although my kids all gave up naps at a young age, Princess R is still taking them, but they are getting shorter. 
On Friday this week, during Princess R’s nap, I cuddled with the other two on the couch and read stories. After 3 short picture books I could not keep my eyes open much longer. See I’ve been trying to follow the advice in Proverbs 31, that a woman arise while it is still night to make meat for her household. I have been getting up at 4:30 all week.  Sadly, I’m not as good at going to bed early, and by friday it was catching up. So I asked the Princesses if it was ok if I took a nap. They happily obliged, and colored while still cuddling with me, while I dozed in and out.
Today, Princess R woke from her nap much earlier than normal, and quite unhappy. I asked Mark if he’d like to get her, because I know sometimes just seeing him Princess R will get very happy.  30 minutes later, I had not heard anything from her room, nor seen the pair. So I went to check on them. I found this

ok not a great picture. I was trying not to use a flash so they would not wake up. But what you might make out in the above picture, is Princess R wrapped in her favorite blanket, sound asleep on Mark who was also sound asleep in the recliner.  Awe, my heart melted!
I love the memories made when we take time to slow down and spend time, even if it’s napping, with our loved ones. These are memories to cherish.
Sit Relax and Read
