Doing What I Need to Do

Dear John,
 
Today was a rest day. I read, slept, and knitted just a little. The only thing I did was one load of laundry. But that's okay. The most productive thing I could do was to make myself ready and able to go to work tomorrow.
 
It's hard for me to remember that rest is productive work for us fibromites. This meme is important. It helps me to not glorify activity. Now that you're not here to tell me this, I have to be able to tell myself. It sounded better in your voice. But I'm getting better at listening to myself.
 
I found another meme that you'll love; this one is just for fun because I know you'll love it as much as I did. Maybe this is the reason Greek yogurt is so good - the cows don't talk like ours do. So giggle at this tonight, and go to sleep with a smile on your face. And don't worry about me - I'll be up and at work tomorrow, because I did what I needed to do today.
 
Miss you so much,
Joan.
