I was teaching Thomas how to use Pinterest (he has so many great pins).
But, really, I was doing more than that. I was spending time with my husband. I was sharing something I knew he would love. I was investing my time in us.
This morning when the alarm clock went off at 5am, I did not want to get out of bed. And I didn't. I snuggled up close to Thomas, let his warmth envelop me, and went back to sleep for two glorious hours. Together.
When I did get out of bed, I did not bemoan my laziness. I did not tell myself all of the things I should have been doing instead of sleeping. I sat at the computer, and mentally rearranged my to-do list. Striking off anything that wasn't necessary, I was finished with all my tasks in time to start school.
I felt better for the extra rest, and I felt better for the time spent with my husband.
Tonight I will go to bed earlier, and tomorrow I will wake up on time.
But for today, deviating from my schedule was a good thing. And giving myself the space to do that without stressing about it was even better.
How have you been kind to yourself lately?
Today I am at Just Be Enough sharing 5 things I am doing to nurture myself this year.
I would love to hear your thoughts on it.
