Mama Needs a Break

On Break

On Break

Last week I had a break in the middle of the day before walking in to an appointment. I pulled over into a parking lot, opened up my sun roof, let me seat go all the way back and gazed up into the sky you see in this photograph. That is a symbol for how I feel right now. I need to take a break and just gaze up into the sky. I’ve been working too hard — at work and at home — and I’m depleted.

I feel so selfish saying this because I know people in far worse situations — people who don’t even have jobs to complain about. People who have lost their homes and can’t even complain about housework because they’ve lost their homes.

I’ve been here before. Exhausted. Depleted. In about one hour, I’ll be sitting in church. I am just going to give up and let Him take care of me. I am too lazy to look up the verse and quote it exactly but I think it’s from Matthew and it says something like “All you who are carrying a heavy load, give it to me, I will give you rest. Even if your burden is heavy, take my yoke…it is easy.” I don’t know what the heck a yoke is but I think mules or ox wear them when they plow a field. Anyhoo, sounds good to me.

As always, I welcome your comments. Thanks for hanging out here with me.

  1. So true. Sometimes you just need to stop and get away from everything. I think Oscar Wilde said, “We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.”

    I find it true with your blog post too. We all have trials and tribulations but we are able to enjoy the simply things that make life seem impossible sometimes.

    Thanks for the comment, Joe. I love that Oscar Wilde quote.
