On the way home from a Sunday afternoon baseball tournament, we pulled over for an unplanned pause in our journey. The tournament was only a little over an hour away from home to begin with, and we were more than halfway back, but found ourselves in serious need of some time to decompress, to exhale. There was crying, fighting, obnoxious singing, and we just needed to make it stop. We stayed for less than an hour, and it was time well spent.
In many areas of our life, I am finding that Jonny and I need to do a better job of knowing when it’s better to stop, than to keep pushing forward. We need to find times and places to rest, even if it’s just for a few moments.
I hope you found some rest in your weekend!
