Take A Break – Ninth Day

Now often I find myself simply overworked

Intending to rest, though it never quite works

Needed is someone who can just set me down

Taking my work away with a frown

Helping me to remember I need to wind down


Doing your best is all well and good

At the expense of your health…

You obviously need someone to look after you


On the ninth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me:

The loving reminder to Take a Break

I like to read and write and hang out with my family and friends. I currently live on a farm and all that such a living entails.

    Beautiful, Martha…not easy accepting limits but as you said,
    doing your best is all well and good
    at the expense of your health
    taking a break is what you should

    Merry Christmas and wishing you and your family (and farm animals) a blessed holiday xx
