Learning to relax
Part of the lesson of being sick this vacation has taught me to re-learn the art of resting. There was so much I wanted to do. And I had been doing and being busy right up to the point where I just simply didn't have any energy left. Seeing as my body wouldn't let me do anything else, I rested. I've read (I'm on my 4th novel since last week), I've watched movies (Jonathan bought me the Anne of Green Gables set for Christmas) and I've spent time simply sitting and watching my kids play (a real joy that I am often too busy to allow myself to do). And that's been great. I hope I remember to hang on to this art of resting and remember to take the time.
