Moms: Claim an oasis for yourself every day

A pink bathrobe reminded me to take better care of myself

Whatever you choose to do, as long as it leaves you breathing a little deeper and thinking a little clearer and smiling a little easier, I think it is worth doing.

I think I’ll keep that new pink bathrobe of mine. I’ll wear it now and then, especially on cold mornings. And whenever I see it on the back of my bedroom door, I’ll remember that along with keeping the rest of my family afloat in a hundred different ways, caring for myself needs to fit into my every day, too.
