Monday Luxuries

It's 10:20 am on Monday, and I've only been awake, really awake anyway, for 20 minutes.  This is not one of those days when I managed to figure out what I would say in this space ahead of time, and wrote it, scheduled it, and then fell asleep.

Today is Monday, a day with a few little luxuries, and I've only just woken up.

A day off, and sleeping in.  Those are luxuries.

A scheduled massage appointment - finally, and much needed.  That's a luxury too.

A free afternoon, with plans to tackle homework in a leisurely sort of way.  Another luxury.

A plan to share an evening with some friends.  To bring them a meal.  To play with their two year old, and cuddle their two-week old.  To laugh and share a meal - there is something that is wonderful and holy in sharing a meal.  These are all luxuries.

Today is Monday, and it is a day full fo little luxuries, and I am thankful.
