Thomas baking cookies - can you believe I cannot stand sweets and even baking doesn't appeal to me except I do make our daily bread still. Thomas loves snickerdoodles and knowing I wasn't feeling too up to it, went ahead and made them, asking me what to do each step of the way.
The past five weeks have been very hard for me. The sickness and simply the exhaustion has been more than I have ever experienced. Perhaps it is my age, at 41 years I am getting on the older side of having children. Maybe it is something else completely. But, I have not been "there" for my family. I am usually a high energy person that is on-the-go all day.
I have had no choice but to slow down and accept help from my husband and children. I have had no choice but to expect less of myself and to not try and get so much done each day.
As a result, I have had to really consider what has to get done and who needs me most.
Which has got me thinking - maybe slowing down should be reflected more in my life even when I am not so sick or tired.
Warm wishes, Tonya
