EDS

"I just wanted to wake up feeling rested."
It's nearing the end of the day and dearest one and I
are washing up the supper dishes together.
Tonigh I'm grateful that it will be a short work week.
I wake up feeling rested once every few months.
Sometimes, like tonight,
I have to admit that I have health limitations.
That's the short explanation of my sometimes lack of spoons.
The longer one wearies even me.
For the most part I try to take it in my stride.
Except when I get this tired.

Rest is important, and so short work weeks are great. They give us the chance to rest if we take advantage of them. It sounds like you got really sick by pushing yourself too much and going to work instead of staying home. I think we all sometimes doing that, thinking somehow that we are indispensble. Yet, we were to quit, retire, move on, we would be replaced and work would go on. I tell the managers who work for me that they should want to be dispensable, developing their subordinates to be able to do their jobs because if they are truly indispensable in their current position, I will never be able to promote them!

Here's a prayer that you feel rested today and that God gives you all the strength you need and more.

Funny you mention that Hope. I was thinking along the same lines last night. I came to the conclusion that I was not getting enough sleep and need to do something about that!

Hope your energy is soon restored, or your balance, whichever is needed!
