I am confined to my bed. It has been a weekend of self-imposed bed rest. After a week of horrendous back pain it became clear that I needed to stop trying to push through.

I am taking time 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.
