The Importance of R&R

I recently returned from four days at our cabin on Green Lake. It has surprised me how refreshed and renewed I feel. Even though I spent a lot of time cleaning and organizing and doing other work, I managed to relax and rejuvenate through sleep, reading, and just being. As a result, I have been able to return home ready to tackle the ongoing issues that besiege my everyday life with energy and through refreshed eyes. I actually managed to wash my own home's floors today and still have energy to carry on into the evening. Imagine how I'll feel after another two weeks at the lake and then two weeks where I relinquish my troubles to others. That's the main thing I spent time reflecting on. I am certainly very blessed to have been born into a family where I don't have to do things on my own; where others will step in when the need arises and not judge; just be there. So in closing, I say to all those who are there for me; thank-you.
