The Truth About Rest

The Truth About Rest

We had a long week. One of those weeks where the calendar was too full and at the beginning of the week, you just knew that by the end you were going to be dragging. I woke up this morning wondering how much of me was left for the tasks ahead. Today required extra effort […]
