Avrille is my thoughtful muse. She sends cards for every occasion, brings cookies at Christmas, washes the dishes after you invite her to dinner, brings chicken soup when you have a cold, listens for hours when you are hurting. She always knows how to make you feel good and appreciated. I love to be around her.

Today's aMUSEment - Do you have a thoughtful muse? Do you know how to take care of yourself the way Avrille takes care of me? Let's make a list of things you can do to take care of yourself. Set the timer for 5 minutes and write 10 things you could do to take better care of yourself. Some(I have way more than 10) of mine are:

    1. Walk on the beach or in the woods
    2. Deep breath when I am stressed
    3. Call a good friend
    4. Lay in the grass in the backyard and looking at the clouds or stars
    5. Say a prayer of thanksgiving for all my blessings
    6. Go to an art gallery
    7. Have a tea party for one with linen napkins, silver and china wearing white gloves and a hat
    8. Write a letter longhand and mail it
    9. Hug someone who needs it until they let go (maybe myself)
    10. Brush the dog or cat

Now make a commitment to yourself to do at least one of these things each week.

U Be Creative Today!

You can come to R-wood and relax! You have lots of hugs from Annie and Drew, even a tea party with Annie. Lots of friends to visit, and entertainment by Joe! And pamper yourself with iced tea and rocking chair on the porch watching the river! Hope you come see us soon! Love ya! Mary Beth
