Sabbath rest

I’m still learning at 50
about slowing down to smell the roses.

How ’bout you?

I was raised to work hard

without stopping

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.
