    This is so good Heather. Beautifully written to enable me to also reflect on when I am over doing it in the craziness of life. I am thinking of you and holding you. All the best while you rest and get ready for the best ahead.

    Dear Heather,

    I am so grateful that you took this precious time for you.

    As much as I wanted to write, I was also at that wobbling time and knew that the best I could support you was to support me, send you prayers when I could.

    You are in my heart as I hold my own heart

    Take care dear companion …..

A combination of stresses in my life – divorce, single parenthood, home renovations, and the continued high demands that followed my viral blog post – left me feeling wobbly and exhausted.
