Professionals call it a mental health day. I call it canceling all my commitments and staying home. In my pajamas.
I am not going to tell you all the details of why I chose today. I will however describe for you how this day looked and what it did for me.
At 7:30am this morning, I woke and knew today was that kind of day. I haven’t done anything like this in years. But I know myself enough that I had to engage the brakes.
After saying good bye to my family, I surrounded myself with the essentials: journal, bible, books, and my laptop.
I wrote to a few people who needed to hear from me, and then…. The day began. It provided me with rest. It provided me with space, space which is lacking in life. Space to think; space to breathe; space to rest.
And that’s exactly what I did on this rainy day. I hung my autumn banner in my new home from my suburban house. So many seasons this banner hung reminding me to be thankful for all and everything.
This is that season. Time to be thankful and maybe this day was all to hang the banner again in my heart and home.
