You have permission.

It’s OK to ask for help.

If you’re a mom, you know this story. You’re busy, constantly getting things done for the family, in the home and away from home. Things could not possibly go on without you. Then you get sick. Not just a sniffle, but dizzy, fall-over kind of sick.

The secret is, that yes, things CAN go on without you. Give your partner some credit! They will find a way to make it work. They’ll eat Kraft dinner, or pizza. They’ll get to school late. Their lunches might be a little less than nutritious. But at the end of the day, they will all make it home, without a scratch.

Above all – take care of yourself. Spend the day in bed. You deserve it. You have time for it.

You have permission to heal.
