I have found that being a wife and a mother has taken a toll on me physically, emotionally and spiritually. I didn't realize how much I put everything else before my needs, which is easy to do when you love your children and husband so much. My husband said something that made me think last night. He asked me why did I feel like I had to do everything? He pointed out that he is very capable of doing more as long as I don't criticize how he does it. I didn't have a response to that but, I thought about it all night and today. I think I do need to take more time out for myself, even if it's just to go on a 15 minute walk around the neighborhood.
