My Featured Blogger this week is Sue (aka SueBE) of praypower4today, a site that Midwesterner Sue shares with West Coaster Lori and Northeasterner Ruth. Between them, they cover a lot of ground, not only geographically, but topically–and always in the most thoughtful and engaging of ways. Read SueBE’s current post and you’ll see!
I wish I could tell you why, but I can’t. All I know is that the term “self-care” used to grate on my nerves. It may be because it is trendy. With me, that’s enough. Unicorns? Yuck. Mermaids? Shudder. Don’t even get me started on . . . never mind.
But lately, I’ve been thinking a lot about self-care. It feels essential.
One friend recently told me about her teen daughter having to take carry out orders over the phone for work. When she didn’t immediately know which of several sandwiches with peppers one customer wanted, he explained to her just how stupid she had to be. A friend is helping her father post-surgery. She gets told off regularly by her brother because he isn’t doing it right.
And it isn’t just that these women need self-care. They do, but it goes beyond that.
