We have done so much this month, haven’t we?  We have totally changed our daily habits and how we are using our time.  We are spending time in scripture and prayer, doing things for other people, organizing and working out.  And that’s not all!

Today, I want us to focus on someone very important, someone who may have been left out a little this month: ourselves.

Challenge #21-Do something for yourself today.  Take a bubble bath, get a pedicure, go to the movies, get takeout for dinner instead of cooking and cleaning up.

Yesterday, my wonderful mother kept the kids for most of the day and I was actually ALONE in my house.  I can count the times on one hand that I have been alone at home since I had children, and it was such  a blessing to me.  I turned some music up real loud and cleaned and ironed for a little while, then I sat down and watched TV.  It was exactly what I needed to recharge.

Something else that I love doing is working in my flowers.  During the summer, Jason will come home some days and he will take care of the kids while I just mess around in my garden, weeding and cutting and watering.  That is a really important time for me. I can’t wait until this winter is OVER!

What do you do to recharge?  Spend today focusing a little on yourself.
