I think that I am still an extrovert – but I crave that 10 minutes … ALONE … standing in the shower, water running over my face and I don’t want anyone around me.
I love my life. I love my children. I love my husband. But there just comes that time in the day when I can no longer play trains or dinosaurs or sing nursery rhymes. I don’t want to change another nappy or breastfeed or burp. I don’t want anyone hanging off me or asking me for help or even to hug me.
I’d kill to go back in time for 15 minutes more sleep, or to have a night in by myself, or to take the time to have me time and simply wash my hair. But then again, this is my life and I wouldn’t change it for the world.
So I’ll take my 10 minutes in the shower. I’ll let the water run down my face. And I’ll offer up a little pray of thanks for all that is wonderful life – because I have so much to be thankful for!
Do you love your shower? Do you some times feel drained at the end of the day? Are you children all grown up and do you miss hugs?
