But I also want touch on ways to take a time out. No you do not have to go and sit in the corner. I use to love my 3 pm bubble baths. It was perfect timing. I would slip into the tub with a good book and music and soak for 30 minutes. Then when I popped out, dry and dressed I was ready for anything. That was just when the kids came in from school. A time out really helps an overworked overwrought woman get refocused. And yes if your a mom, wife and caretaker your overworked daily. When you take time for just you then you can recharge those batteries. One of my favorite ways to recharge is by doing a mini me time. I can load up, run away from home and then find a great secluded area. Now I can walk around, enjoy the heavens and the earth while letting all of my stress just flow away. This helps us become better moms, better wives and just better.
I am also having a ladies afternoon coffee today. A group of my friends and prayer group. We are going to gather on the porch and share our coffee and our prayers for each other. I can't wait to get out all of our fun coffee cups, the Folgers Special Roast, sweeteners and our Land O Lakes Half & Half on a tray. I am setting the table on the porch with bright colors and using bible verses printed on colored paper to make conversation starters. The ladies prayer group is going to be treated to some home baked goodies too. We are having Pumpkin Dessert Cake. It so goes with the holiday season. Fall is wonderful. A time to review and renew. A time for....time outs.
Mix and pour into 11 x 17 pan and bake at 350 for 35 minutes.I do wish to thank House Party for the Folgers and Land O Lakes goodies and party. I want to thank the publishers for "Mothers Need Time-Outs, Too" book. As always no one pays me, they just share goodies. How lucky is that? But I can share with you. We have a copy of "Mothers Need Time-Outs, Too" for one lucky winner. Just leave a comment for me below. (Remember to leave your email.) Extra entries are for following on GFC, twitter and facebook. Comment for each on so I know.
