Being Left Out... On Purpose...

I've decided I am taking a day off. I'm tired. I've had a lot going on... in the last week, in the last month, and maybe in the last year.

I've decided that I am going to take Saturday off and go on the boat. I had a bunch of stuff I needed to do, a bowling thing at night. But in the best interest of ME, I'm taking the day off. I'm tired, I'm wore out, I've had enough, I've even had more than my share of 'enough'. So I may disappoint people, but really, I need a day off. I need to spend some time with my dad, his g-friend, and Phyllis out on the boat. (And I am going to try to not feel guilty!)

I'm kind of a dork but it's like my favorite place on earth. I don't know if it's like Sara and the farm, but the smell, the sunshine, and the memories, I always feel close to God, but when the sun hits my face, I don't even have the words, I guess I can just feel God smiling.

So I'm taking a mental health day because if I don't, I might end up with Sara as my nurse, and seriously, I am not kidding.

Psalm 25:21 Use all your skill to put me together; I wait to see your finished product. (msg)

I think a day off is a great idea - enjoy the boat and have a wonderful day!

have a wonderful day. i'm a little jealous that you can still find your way back to that wonderful place of your childhood. the new owners of the farm refuse to get out. meanwhile, you don't want me for your nurse!
