Today was a lazy day. The children had fun playing with the many things they received for Christmas and I enjoyed the chance to relax. Everyone should take time out once in a while to unwind and let go of stress. Sometimes I get so busy I fail to take time for myself and then I pay dearly with the physical limits stress puts me under. Wouldn't it be cool if all businesses closed for one day a month just as they do for the occasional holidays and force the population to unwind?!?!? Wow! We probably would not need doctors so often if we gave ourselves a "holiday" at least once a month. Go ahead! Kick back on the couch among the many pillows, hug your teddy bear and relax. (Like my daughter Bryn-Anika in the picture at left.) Schedule a day for yourself!
