A Day Of Rest

Last night, I fell asleep on the couch.  When I heard my husband get up this morning for work, he told me I looked so tired and was sleeping so soundly that he didn't want to wake me when he headed to bed.  After he left for work, I got our son up for school and once he was on the bus sat down to have some morning coffee and spend some time reading my devotional and praying.  Afterwards, I just couldn't get motivated to do anything.  At first I was beginning to worry about everything I wanted to get done today, but then I realized that I have worked 7 out of the last 9 days and have put in way more hours than usual working.  I decided that for once, it would be alright for me to let things go for a bit and instead enjoy my day.  I did throw in a load of laundry because my daughter had an accident in her bed which required washing her sheets, but other than that I have spent the day relaxing and I do not feel bad about it at all.  I got the fall decorations put up in the house (which was work, but will make me feel good when I get up tomorrow and smile every time I walk in the house for the rest of the season), spent some time reading, and enjoyed my time with my daughter.  Remember that in a usually hectic existence, sometimes you just need to take a day to rejuvinate by doing things that make you happy.  The photo is one that I came across early this morning.  It reminded me that life is all about perspective and helped me to change my attitude towards my to-do list today.  I hope that it inspires you as well and that you are able to enjoy at least a few minutes of relaxation today, whether all alone or with your children.  Have a blessed day!
