Honestly, while I’ve enjoyed the cd and always thought she had a great voice, I was blown away by this live, acoustic version of her single. I could go on and geek out musically, but I’ll just show you the video.
Get all the details at the end of the post and find out who won last week’s prize.
This is the sentence where I write a really cute and clever segue. Or not.
Why Mothers Need A Retreat Routine
I love this quote…
“A mother is a person who seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie.” — Tenneva Jordan
Mother’s give. It’s what we do. And more often than not, we give to everyone else before ourselves. We say yes to everything and everyone else’s needs before we tend to our own.
And that’s a recipe for disaster.
We get rundown, overwhelmed, exhausted and unfocused.
Sound familiar? Maybe you’ve been there or maybe you are there.
Our bodies are smart. They know what we need and they will make sure we get rest one way or the other. If we don’t choose to rest, our bodies will choose for us and we’ll get sick or emotionally give up and let our responsibilities pile up while we zone and watch 90210 marathons.
This is why it is vital that retreats become a part of our routine.
