Rest. That was my one word for 2019. I learned a lot of lessons from living with that word.
“If you get tired, learn to rest, not quit.”
Every time I take this little person for a stroller walk, he falls asleep. Each week he stays awake a bit longer, sitting up and looking around. But before too long, he gives in to the need to rest. This is a good reminder for me. I can easily get absorbed in all the things to see and read and watch and try. And then I get tired. And if I don’t rest, I begin to retreat. So today, I am thankful for the simple afternoon nap. I hear we have a rainy week ahead so it should be a great time to practice resting. I might even write it in my planner.
