"People have to know what relaxes them,
and not feel guilty about using a piece of time
when it is necessary for them,
or when they do not use it exactly as somebody else would."
~ Edith Schaeffer
When my husband and I first married, we gave each other a gift. We both agreed that we'd not place a sense of obligation or guilt on the other when it came to activities or chores around the house and garden. If one of us wanted to take a nap on the couch or read on the deck, while the other was thoroughly engaged and eager to get the chores done, there was no pressure for the napper or reader to succumb to the wishes of the worker, and visa versa.
Over the years, we've allowed the other the freedom to relax and enjoy the moment when their body or mood required a different rhythm than our own. It's worked beautifully in our home.
Here's wishing you a beautiful day!
