Would you mind if I was transparent with you today?
Despite this smile, there is a very tired and overwhelmed soul behind it. Over the past week and a half, my family has been going through a lot. On the 18th, we lost our last great aunt. Later, my dad was hospitalized and was told his toe would need to be amputated.
The funeral of my great aunt and the surgery of my dad are both happening today, and I am just exhausted.
As a mother and wife, I still have responsibilities. In the present, I am taking my youngest son to see a rare train, followed shortly thereafter by taking my daughter to dance class.
My last meal was barely a mouthful before I had to leave for the funeral.
It's definitely a life-ing moment...
As my body screams at me to rest, I must heed its call. Upon returning from taking my daughter to class, I will silence this phone, eat something good, and relax.
I will not use social media. There will be no crafting for me. No clothes will even go in the washing machine. Tonight, resting will be my priority.
This is my Wellness Wednesday message to you. Be attentive to your body. When you feel overwhelmed, turn off the distractions and rest. When you're well rested, what you put off today will still be there. Honor your body.
