The road to home

The road to home makes me think of advice my mother gave to me as a newly married woman, “Remember dear, every time he annoys you or does something you think is stupid .. he’s had the same thoughts about you.”

 Isn’t that the truth?

Today, I listened

source: ludix.com

My mojo’s been lacking this week.

I’ve felt lethargic. Less-than-engaged.  Achy. Headachy.   I’ve been pushing through it, as most of us do, assuming I would catch up.

This week, I’ve worked with a headache; I’ve left with a backache.  I’ve stayed up too late because sleep skipped past me.

Today. I listened. 

I got up for work at my regular time, after a fitful night’s sleep. Blah.  My hair hurt. My eyes hurt.  My body hurt.

I looked in the mirror and did something I rarely do.

I listened.

I listened to my body when it said, “I really need sleep.”

I listened to my body when it said, “Help me. You have sick days. Use one.”

Today. I listened. 

I hugged our teenager as he left for the bus stop; I closed the door, climbed the stairs and slipped back under the covers.  And I slept. For four hours. 

Today. I listened.
