I am a mom, a wife, a lover of God and my family, a friend, a naturalist and environmental educator, a writer, a crunchy granola, a reader, thinker, scrapbooker, journeyer - not necessarily in any order.
Today I took some time just to rest. I tried to leave some of the housework undone (purposefully!) and - gasp - asked for more help. I allowed myself to have some down time. I am thankful I have what seems like a luxury: space to be able to listen to my body and honor my internal rhythms. And the world does not come to an end just because the housework isn't done or the laundry anywhere near caught up. I know in a day or two I will be able to rebound and begin fresh again, and the days will spin onward. I will continue to be creative and try to be more organized, and will have the strength for my tasks.
