You hear it all the time. Sunday is a day of rest. We should intentionally put our work aside and remind ourselves that this day was made for us to take a much needed break from the chaotic lives we lead. But as moms how do we do that? We still have laundry, meals to cook, battles to break up, spills to clean. It is frustrating to put it aside because all you see is the piling up of more work. In my mind it feels like procrastination not relaxation. Why put off tomorrow what you can do today. Well, what I am realizing is the more I let my anxious-clean-up-the-mess personality step aside the more I find myself enjoying this day of rest. I don’t think we will ever find a perfect balance but if you can clear your mind and schedule to be present with the ones you love who can argue with that!
