Resting

This is how I feel today.
Blah!
It's a good day to reflect on my "one little word" ~ REST.
Our bodies need it. We don't always give our bodies what it needs. But it has a way of getting what it needs! Like today...I have no option available except to REST. I am wiped out. It's an effort to walk down seven stairs and go into the kitchen to make a cup of tea. Then I climb back up ALL seven of those stairs and collapse onto my bed so I can REST some more!
Ali Edwards, the originator of One Little Word, shared some great actions to take with our words in her post today.
I plan on using her suggestions!
But for now ~ I need some more REST!

I don't suppose anyone would like to get me a cup of tea?
Update: I found the thermos! I have four cups of hot tea on my nightstand right now. That should last until someone gets home...someone who can wait on me! : )

Oh Marie-I am so sorry you are sick! I would love to bring you some homemade soup if I could. Stay in bed and sleep, sleep, sleep! You must have a flu bug. Take good care! xoxo

Aww Marie I hope you get better quickly, I love that you are set up with tea in a thermos and don't need to get out of bed for a while.

Rest up!

Hope your feeling better soon Marie. *hugs* Something definitely must be going around out there. Thankfully I am feeling a lot better but Wendell is still really jittery.

Take care,
Debbie

Last weekend Marie my daughter and I went to the Human Body Exhibit. I'm not sure if you know about it. It changed my eating habits and made me really think about REST and how I'm treating the only body God gave me. I'm soooo with you...REST...is so needed and wanted by all...Goodnight...I'm going to BED REST now...lights out!

Happy Ground Hogs Day tomorrow!
