It’s Sabbath Sunday! This is the day to focus on resting so you can be recharged for the rest of the week.
So I have to ask you…do you let yourself rest? This, for me, is very difficult so I wouldn’t be surprised if you said that you struggled with this as well.
Being a wife and mom there is always something to be done. Always! If everything is done to a point where I can sit down then someone is probably calling my name. Recently my daughter has gotten into this phase that she wants me to sit, listen, and talk. In the beginning this was very hard for me. Usually when I talk to her I am also cooking dinner or throwing a load of clothes into the washer. But now it has become something I look forward to. Something that allows my mind to change gears and re-adjust if needed.
I would encourage you to take the time to rest. Allow yourself the change of pace. In the beginning it will be difficult, but soon it will be less of a challenge. Just to relax, change up the routine, and give yourself a minute to re-group.
With inky fingers,
