The best you can offer your family starts with the best you. The best you starts with a well-rested you. As (working) moms we often lack the proper rest because we feel we are letting our family down if we are not constantly doing for them. And we feel we are letting ourselves down if we are not constantly accomplishing something. But, I have learned that the dirty bathroom, dishes, and laundry are not going anywhere…unless Hubby takes care of it. 🙂 The work assignments and projects will be there on Monday when you return to the office. The basketball, football and soccer teams will still have games even if Junior misses one. The dance recital and gymnastics competition will still happen even if Missy is not there. As mothers, we have to learn to take a break and rest. Relax Mommy, you deserve it. What creative ways do you find to relax?
Until next time…
“And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done. Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made.” (Genesis 2:2-3 NKJV)
