Playing Hookie

Some days, we just need a break.  At our house, today is that day.  Mama needs to just sit still and let the world spin without any input from me.  So, today is a day of hookie.  A day when pajamas may not ever change into a nice pair of pants and top for errand running.  The shoes of choice will be slippers.  The Curlee Hairs that are home will definitely roll around with rat's nests.  Not much is expected except for a day of rest. 

I had big plans today.  Lots of chores to be done around town.  A Bible study to attend.  A mother's day out where I should have dropped off two little tots.  But, not today.  The agenda has changed.  Today is a day of ease and comfort.  All the rest can wait until tomorrow.  Hope you can fit in some rest for your soul soon, too!

Sometimes the most important thing in a whole day is
the rest we take between two deep breaths,
or the turning inwards in prayer for five short minutes.
