Taking a "Me" Day

I am not Super Mom. I am not a robot, and I cannot give, give, give without some kind of “give” in return. Every once in awhile even my body needs to rest, relax, and recuperate.

Nope. I don’t like admitting it. I like to put on the persona that I am the perfect mom – homeschooling, business running, do-it-all kind of gal who never get her feathers ruffled or has a bad day. Nothing can stop me, and no burden is too heavy.

But, I’m human. I have bad days. I get tired. And, boy, can I get cranky. I yell, scream, and question God why He allows things to happen – or not happen. I am not the perfect mom, and I let people down. More often than I would ever like to admit.

I need to readjust my focus and get it where it should be. So today, I’m spending some time with the Lord. I’ve got a MOPS meeting tonight, and I want my heart to be prepared to hear the word of God and get something from it.

So, instead of a review or a giveaway, this is the “new” post you’ll see on here today. I know it’s not much, but I’m taking a “me” day. A day to refresh my soul and spirit and give everything in my life over to Christ and start fresh. My most important appointment today is with Jesus in prayer.

Do you ever feel like calling in sick some days? What do you do to refresh your body and spirit? I’d love to hear how you spend your “me” time.

    It's good that you take time for yourself. It probably helps you to be a better person 🙂 I don't have kids, so I love spending my free time reading books 🙂
