And rest yourself ’neath the strength of strings

We are striving very hard in our home to institute a day of rest. It sounds silly to have to TRY to rest, but it is hard to sort of schedule in a chore-less, errand-less day. We have done this twice, and I have found myself looking forward to it during the week as a light at the end of the tunnel. To know that there will be one day set aside to lounge around in the sun on a blanket and read-all day, to rejuvenate, and talk and hug has helped me breathe deeper during the week. We took our day of rest yesterday as it was sunny and warm; today is to be filled with rain, laundry, and baking..
