Just say yes

Did I mention I am sick?  My body rebelled against business-as-usual.

‘You are big and pregnant!’ said my body.

‘But I feel good’ I replied.

‘You must rest!’ it demanded.

But I didn’t listen, so now I say ‘yes’ to four days in bed, coughing and sneezing and snoring and generally being delightful.

So Jamie’s wish prompt has come along at just the right time.

I wish to say yes to the demands of my body, and remember to be gentle with my ballooning self.

I wish to embrace and say yes to all the demands of motherhood, which are barrelling towards me at an alarming rate.

And finally, I wish to say yes to my teacher’s challenge, that I must keep writing through all this next phase brings.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to take my lemon and honey and go back to bed.
