Here's what I saw: busy day, lots of projects, needing a rest, wanting to eat something to restore my body. And it hit me. Having a clean kitchen when my body was really tired and hungry meant that it would be so much easier to prepare some food for myself. While I watched my hands wipe off the stove, another picture came forward: tired body at the end of the day wanting an eagerly inviting place to rest for the night. Having my bed made so that it beckoned me with love and comfort seemed so much better than tossing the mess of laundry off the foot of the bed and falling into the jumble of sheets and covers.
So there you have it. Handy Andy's take on preparedness for the body. I'll do it first thing before I launch into all the Things I get to do today and my body gets too weary to focus. I'll pack my parachute when I'm clear and rested, because I know I'll be grateful as I'm coming down for a soft and safe landing.
