me time...

                      we need women
                      who are 
                      so strong they can be gentle,
                      so educated they can be humble.
                      so fierce they can be compassionate,
                      so passionate they can be rational,
                      and so disciplined they can be free.

i've been flying solo for the last three days...
and i feel like my wings are about to collapse.
but ian is back from the mainland...and i feel like i can breath deeply again

i was volunteering at the cridge centre for the family yesterday.
working with women, most of them are young mothers flying solo all the time
and they are TIRED and i honestly don't know how/where they find the strength to endure.

today i get some me time...i will get some exercise, i will visit with friends and enjoy unhurried conversation,  i will sip slowly and enjoy my extra hot, non fat, no foam soy green tea latte,  i will visit the library and browse, i will putter so softly (soft enough so i can hear the background music playing) while i work to tame the chaos of my kitchen, i will paint my toenails and admire them between pages of my book.

it is going to be a lovely day!!!
