I’m still learning at 50
about slowing down to smell the roses.
How ’bout you?
I was raised to work hard
until I collapsed.
That is how I watched my mom deal with her pain.
I learned it well.
I want to be careful that I don’t judge her.
She didn’t have much to work with.
It’s easier for me
because of her (and others’) sacrifices.
- The early women’s movement (pre70s?)
- My grandmas both of ’em
- My mother in some ways
the concept of rest is new for me
I want to learn about it.
here I am: God.
