After a long wait, I am soaking in my tub, listening to my This American Life app. I am happy. I have been one stressed out Mama lately. But this here, this moment, so thankful. Ever the optimist, I stayed positive, used to living under renovation construction. This house is old. It needs the love. I am happy to oblige. This soak I am taking right now, this is a symbol. Better days are ahead. This is also a symbol of taking care of myself. I often forget self care. No more. I will remember myself. I will soak myself. I will acknowledge myself as worthy. Just because I am a caretaker doesn't mean I must forget my own needs. Relaxation. Privacy. Warmth. Thank you, uncle. Good things come to those who wait (and wait, and wait).
