When was the last time

When was the last time you took time for yourself?
Have you taken a few minutes in the morning to get your motor started
or do you jump into the day's activities?
I like to start the day with a cup of coffee on the front porch where I listen
to the birds and watch people hurrying to work.
Do you take time on the weekends to catch up?
I never call anyone on Sunday afternoon, just in case
that person is getting some much needed rest by taking a nap.
How about a weekend retreat to revitalize?
Three days a year to get yourself refreshed and focused,
is not a luxury but a must have for harried individuals.
The weekend before school started, I would leave the kids
with my mother and go to Houston. There I would sleep late,
take a dip in the pool, and dine on the balcony.
I was then ready to face the next year.
Sound good to you?
Don't forget to tell your family and friends how important they are to you.
If you have any ideas you would like to share, I will pass them on.
I have been doing the workshop but I am tryng to plan a retreat,
if the Lord is willing.
May God bless you,
Dorris Jean
