It’s good to have time to sort through all the flotsam and jetsam of my life, their lives, our life. Weaving it together into a story, discarding what weighs down, cherishing the bits and pieces of it all without having to stop to make dinner. Every mom needs a sabbath, like a teacher’s prep session, to enter into the holy fray with herself in tact.
Every paid worker, no matter where in the economic scale, expects a day off a week and a vacation a year. By and large, mothers and housewives are the only workers who do not have regular time off…What matters is that one be for a time inwardly attentive. –Anne Morrow Lindbergh
