Five Minute Friday: Fight


stay.  here.  don't fight it.

just two weeks ago, I gave birth to a sweet girl.  and then Christmas happened.  and New Years.  and I find myself doing too much.  I'm not quite recovering as quickly as it took me to feel good. 

so here i am.  3 days into 2014, and my one word is already turning against me. 

i'm fighting it.  i know i need to stay here.  be still.  receive.  heal.  but everything in me fights the call to just sit here.  i feel fine.  but my body betrays me.  i guess i will just give thanks for the required respite- look for the grace in each moment.  and let my body do it's thing.  she made me so proud on December 19th, laboring, delivering....  she is sucked dry daily. and hasn't had a full nights' rest.  it's time to stop fighting.  she deserves a break.
