When was the last time you set time aside to take care of yourself? Last year, month, or week? Yesterday? Being a full time mommy of a toddler, a part time working mom and a pastor’s wife, I’ve frequently uttered softly the words, “What about ME?”

So, you see there are sacrifices involved.
However, my husband and daughter would agree that momma is so much happier and focused when this time is allotted.
