|Shouldn't we all be free spirits like this? Does this cat look stressed as he plays with the dogs tail?|
And.....packing the girls lunches was tough today being that I'm on a health kick and all the food in the house was totally yucky.....at least to an 8 and 6 year old. That meant I had to also go to the grocery store after church.
I also volunteer at the girls school on Thursday and Friday to walk their classes to the park. Did I mention that I hate the cold, too?
Oh boy.....what a baby I've been today!
So after all this, I was looking forward to going home and resting a bit with a heating pad on my belly and the comfort of a couple of midol. Then, my friend calls and requests that my kids come over after school and play with her kids.
So I go home, thinking I'd really better get come things done while the kids are gone. But......I also got a lovely feeling.
|Rest is good. So are new friends.|
Lay down. Relax. You've done enough today. All that stuff you feel like you must do will be there tomorrow. Take a nap.
And I did. With the fire going. And the phone turned off. And the new cat sleeping, curled up next to me. And although my belly doesn't feel much better, my spirit does.
Rest. Is. Good.
And I'd also like to share a new painting. There is a wonderful gentleman name Rick who I have dubbed my junkman (He's FABULOUS) who occasionally finds me awesome things to paint on. He dropped off this amazing antique, wooden plate a few weeks ago at the gallery. It was screaming for an angel inside it.
And a few days ago, my awesome hubby redid my studio for me. Ah......nothing screams rest like a nice, clean work space.
Now.....shut down your computer and go get some rest.
