I Tried to Tell Myself I Didn't Need a Vacation...

I tried to tell myself that I was fine, not frenzied or frazzled. Some people needed a vacation, but I wasn't one of those people.
 But then again, maybe I did...
 On the plane I began to relax. My husband had longed for me to go with him on one of his business trips. I just never felt I deserved to go, or that the kids could do without me.
  As I warmed myself in the tropical heat, I realized my husband was right. I smiled a little convincing smile at him, admitting he was right.
 I woke at 8:30 am. My usual time is 4:30 am. These nails haven't been painted in over a year.
 While my husband was working I walked the beach, ate brunch under a palm, and read my Bible. When he came back from the office we had romantic dinners and an ocean view.
 The tranquility and peace in this place restored my soul. My husband is wonderful. He knew I needed this 
 Sometimes we need a nudge. For me, I needed a push. I had to step out and get my feet wet. I now realize how good this was for me.
 This lovely place is where I had breakfast and lunch; right on the beach.

Thank You God, for giving me this time of rest. Thank You, Lord for allowing me to think of You, while in paradise. Thank You for restoring my soul. Thank You, God, for giving me such a wonderful husband of 30 years. I'm so blessed.
Blessings, Kathi Psalms 127:2B "He giveth his beloved sleep."

One thing we women tend to forget is that we cannot take care of others if we do not care for ourselves. That includes taking time just like this to rejuvenate. Nice that you could make the time to go. A memory you will cherish forever.
I too am glad to see you back in the blog-a-sphere :)
