This year in order to keep my spirits up this winter and to see my friends I have begun opening my home up on Tuesday nights for friends to come visit and just be with other women. I provide drinks, couches and a table and the occasional food and they just come as they are. Many are home school moms and I am enjoying providing an easy space for people to get away and connect with one another.
As homeschool parents I think we often let ourselves fall to the end of the list and forget to take care of ourselves and meet our personal needs. This year I am trying harder to meet those needs and remember to take time for me. I hope by offering my home I encourage other friends to do the same for themselves.
Be gentle on yourself today - you deserve it.
