Sometimes you just need...
a hot shower
a friend's shoulder to lean on.
tea or coffee with a friend for a few hours, whether everything's going right or wrong, or in between -- you just need to spill it all out without worrying about sifting it first.
a quiet walk by yourself.
to sit in a rocking chair on the porch for a while.
a word in due season.
a friend to say, "I understand, you don't have to give a disclaimer or explain it."
two days off in a row, something really rare for me and most pastors I know.
to not be responsible for anything other than yourself for a day.
to order takeout.
to laugh until you cry or your sides hurt.
to watch a movie you don't have to try hard to follow or figure out. (Something totally opposite of Duplicity. Oh. my. gosh. I got so sick of trying to figure it out I went to sleep half way through and told Larry, "don't you dare wake me back up until it's over.")
to just zone out and watch "bad TV" as my boss Kathryn calls it. For me that would be anything from a Lifetime Movie to Tru TV.
to be silly. Somebody called me silly yesterday. I loved it! What can be better than being 43 and accused of being a silly girl?! Bring it!
to sit around with your friends and tell funny stories.
to live on the edge a little..or a lot.
At least I do....do you?
