Cozy at Home

I do have some posts already written, but today I'm just going to write "from the overflow of my heart." I feel crummy. I have cramps, and getting out of bed was something I had to force myself to do. On any other Tuesday morning at this time, I would be getting ready to volunteer in a local school, where I listen to 1st graders read. To be totally honest, I don't know that my being there is really beneficial to anyone. It's a struggle, when the time you invest in something seems insignificant and pointless and meaningless. I think I just need to take the day off. I really prayed about this (as if it was a life or death situation), and I weighed the pros and cons, and ultimately decided to stay home and write this post-which I think will be beneficial to more people than would benefit from my presence at the school-and to lay under blankets and watch movies. One day won't hurt. I wouldn't make this choice if I felt OK-but I don't. I was once again talking to a friend about priorities last night, and I got to put into practice what I preached. I've made the choice to stay home and rest because that seems like the most necessary thing for me to do today.
