Rest: Five Minute Friday {2}

This week I’ve been short on it.

My mind shifts into high gear as I settle into a sweet little hypomanic state. Don’t freak out parents – I know I need to catch up on my rest. I just had so much to get done before kissing the kids goodbye, hugging my mother-in-law, and giving my husband a bear hug and a sensual “thank you” kiss at the airport as he dropped me off. He encourages me more than he knows. He trusts me with his loving smile.

It was a long day of travel yesterday.

Five hours on a plane, twenty minutes on the lightrail, three hours on a bus.

But I am finally here.

Dinner last night was amazing – so fresh and full of vegetables and fruit. Sleep came easy to me once I shed my traveling clothes and slid into cozy jammies.

Rest was refreshing.


Five Minute Friday


  1. Happy journey!

  2. The nice thing about all that travelling is the sleep that comes so easily after. At least for me, because I find it hard to sleep especially when I’m going through a bout of depression.

  3. Oh yes! The value of “forced rest”. I am going away next week for a craft weekend with friends, while my husband holds down the fort. I’m already anxious about leaving – worried about packing up my supplies, making sure the kids have what they need, and worried my little dog will miss me…but I know I need to go. I need the space. And so does my family. Enjoy your time alone.

  4. Great news – to get refreshing rest. Sounds like a lot of travel, but I’ so glad you made it to your destination!

  5. I really enjoy rest and relaxation too. Thanks for stopping by my blog and sharing a word.
