I am taking time to listen...to trust...to breathe deep. And receive the lessons and the gifts in this.
It is all too easy to put my needs last in a house full of the *loud* needs of others. Well, forget it! I matter and my well-being is a priority. Certainly not at the expense of anybody elses. But a priority nonetheless. This is the tricky part that I have yet to figure out. How to make everyone's needs a priority, including my own.
It is now Sunday evening, and all in all the weekend went fine. My husband stepped up and took over running the house and entertaining the children. I got time to rest and I hope my back will be up the tasks of the week ahead.
In the meantime, I got to work on some embroidery.
