I was gone for four days. While my daughters were at their event, I had a hotel room to myself.
I slept in.
I ate when and where and what I wanted.
I went to a bookstore all by myself. A couple of times.
I got a massage.
I went to bed when I wanted.
I actually relaxed.
It was so nice to have a massage after having a couple of days to allow my body to relax!
Yesterday, at a rest stop, J said to me, “You look like you are wearing makeup; your skin looks so pretty.”
Well, they say stress takes a toll on your body. And if you take away that stress, your body is a lot healthier. Including your skin.
I really enjoyed my four days alone. Sometimes I did wish I had someone to talk to, to listen to me, to have a meaningful conversation with. But I guess I wish that a lot of the time!
It was wonderful, though, not to have to be afraid of having to face conflict and strife for a few days.
Maybe I can have that again sometime.
