I did a bit of laundry last night and decided to go to bed for a few hours because I was feeling wiped out from work*. I got up at 3:30 a.m., finished my laundry, packed, had a shower and now I am ready to go an hour before I need to leave for the airport.

*I sit at my desk all day reading slides and doing reports. That should not be tiring but it is. It just exacerbates the lack of exercise/movement in my life and I need to get back to that. I’m in a sloth spiral.

When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand.
