Taking Time for Me



Life moves at a faster pace these days ~ at least it does for me.
I am always rushing around.  Every day seems to be jam packed with 
obligations and responsibilities.  I seldom sit down and just relax.



But today I have vowed to take a few minutes just for me.  




Care to join me?  I'll put the kettle on.  Bentley will curl up in your lap and maybe
show off a trick or two.

  11. Susan ~ how right you are. Most of us don't take time for ourselves. But we MUST make time for ourselves, for if we don't take care of ourselves, we cannot take care of others.
    I would love to sit and relax and have a cup of tea with you and Bentley ;-)

  32. Things do move at the speed of light, don't they??? OH MY.... It was just Monday! I always envision myself getting scads done during the week, but usually settle for a smidge. Love your pretties.... In love with blue again..... it took awhile after the huge overdose I gave myself in the '80's. I am not kidding......every, single room was BLUE. I thought I'd never be able to love it again, but sure enough.........L.O.V.E.

    Have a wonderful weekend......and put your feet up for a little bit too...

    xoxo

  33. I love to enjoy a wonderful book and a cup of tea and to enjoy it in a beautiful cup seems to make it a special occasion. Thank you, I will definitely join you for that cup of tea.

  34. I do take time for me every day,resting, reading, with tea and a special tea treat. Its important to honor ourselves with quiet and enjoyment of what we love. It also is important time to reflect on our priorities and stay still and listen to quiet within to gain perspective. I am so lucky that I am single so I have the time to do what I love and to be good to myself. Nothing is more special then a precious teapot, good tea and a book to restore your soul.
