Today was a rest and catch-up day. If you haven't taken one of those in awhile, you should.
They are good for the body as well as the spirit. I did a little grocery shopping, a little laundry.
I called a couple of friends who are having a rough go. Rick and I watched a really good movie.
In the scheme of things, it was probably not a very memorable day......but it was important.
These days are the glue of life, the stabilizing force when the world spins out of control.
We all have issues.......family, jobs, friends, health......for most of us, there is something going on in some part of our lives.
We need this days, to look at the skies and feel the wind blow in our face.......to hear a friend's voice and do something as mindless as folding laundry. These days remind us that life goes on, and that the ordinary is good. These days make the exciting days even more exciting, and give us an anchor when
life is moving way too fast.
Rest and catch-up, maybe you should pencil one in on your calendar. Read a book, call a friend......stay in your PJ's all day......eat your favorite foods.....take a long walk. Then the next time
life throws you on the tilt-a-whirl, you will be a little stronger, you might even be able to throw your head back and laugh.
Remember, this week, schedule a rest and catch-up day.....and guess what, it doesn't have to be a day, it could be an afternoon or even an hour. You have my permission......rest and catch-up.
