SOME-day? No. TO-day.

I spend 24/7 on Facebook, because that is our greatest tool in sharing A Mother's Rest and reaching out to parents and caregivers in urgent need of our respite offerings. FB is famous for all of the memes, good and bad, but sometimes you get inspirational quotes that really make you think "I need to write a blog post about that". We parents and caregivers are often strapped, quite legitimately, with our care-giving demands. Many of us live on one income. Even at discounted rates, many of us would literally have to choose between our own health investment and a trip to the grocery store. Many of us have no qualified or experienced family or friends to keep our charges so we CAN get away.

Happy 2nd Birthday to A Mother's Rest!

I suppose I should take this time to reflect on two years of respite retreat planning, but who's got the time!? I've got a house full of dads coming this weekend for the Super Bowl, a meeting with the county school system at 11, and 6 boxes of stuff to take to the post office first. Oh, and wash my hair, and potentially get dressed lol People ask me all the time "can you even believe how much has been accomplished in such a short time?" Yes, that was the plan :) "Are you surprised by all the amazing reviews, how meaningful and valuable these retreats have been for so many people already?" No, that was the plan lol MY CUP RUNNETH OVER that I was right. MY CUP RUNNETH OVER that parents
