Put Your Oxygen Mask On

Salmon Fishing in Yemen........the title intrigued me, the story line reeled me in (no pun intended)  It is a beautiful movie that Rick and I watched tonight.  I am all about a good story (special effects are not the first things I look for in entertainment) It is a movie about faith on its most basic level, belief that possibilities are there, that the impossible can sometimes be achieved if only for a little while.  It is an English  movie and I admit I am a sucker for European films. And, Emily Blunt is one of my favorite actresses.

It has been a good day, slowly the downside of treatment has retreated today.....not yet a 100% but getting there.  A  couple of my Monday night students gave me a gift certificate for a massage, I used it this morning.
I felt sorry for the masseuse, she kept exclaiming about the number of knots in my back and shoulders, it was deep tissue massage so she earned her pay........she probably needed a break after me.

This afternoon......a very long nap.  The teacher, practiced what she teaches today.......I lived the airplane story today.  What is the airplane story........when the flight attendant gives the safety demonstration, you know the one about the oxygen always put yours on first, then you can help others......
what I can't help others, if you don't help yourself, you can't care for others, if you don't take care of yourself.  I took care of myself today.

Sometime this weekend........put your oxygen mask on.......take care of yourself.


  1. That is such good advice. I thought I was going to be able to do that Sunday but I don't think that is going to work out now- I have a house full for the weekend- I am glad YOU took care of YOU though- xo Diana

  2. I hope you're feeling better today..can't beat a really good massage! I wish we had one at Jack's day soon I hope! Have a good weekend. We're back to rain today and I'm sure the growth hormone for mosquitoes (it must be falling from the sky with each drop) is working..they are nasty this year!

  3. Jilda, I think we like the same kind of movies so I should watch this one.
    It's good to know you had a nice massage session.
    Enjoy your weekend.
