when we need a moment to ourselves. A chance to recharge our batteries. I've known people who will not slow down, who do not know how to take a brake, or just whine that every body is against them having a moment of peace.
Take care of yourself first, or you won't be able to take care of anyone else. Take that Calgon moment, a sip of soda and a candle lit moment to peace and tranquility while the rest of the family...well they CAN take care of themselves for a bit.
