Yesterday, I found myself in kitchen working on meal preparations while enduring a mid-life variety of menstrual cramps that could bring a horse down.
In my painful busyness, I paused to ask this question, “If I was my own Beloved, what would I say to myself right now?”
To which I replied, “Kelly, darling, this work can wait. Go lie down on the couch with a hot water bottle and read a book until these cramps subside.”
And so I did…
And now, I have a new best friend~
My Own Beloved.
(We plan to stay in touch more often.)
