Love yourself as you would your child.

This quote is from Raw Soul - kick-butt recipes in there. It hit me hard when I read it. I always tell other people that they need to take care of themselves but put myself last. Granted I'm doing better than I have in the past, but I still put everything and everyone else before me.

I take time to cry through my physical therapy exercises, meditate, and to cook well for us all, but I don't nurture myself. I don't see my down time as anything other than a necessary break. I need to see it as something special.

For a week, starting today, I will nurture myself. Let's see how much of a difference it makes.

On another note, hubby's sick and doing his damnedest to share the germs.
