As a wife, mother, daughter, teacher, speaker, and writer there are days I feel like all I do is give. We live in a busy society with high expectations. Various media venues advertise and encourage we do and be all we can. Whether it is the next new "thing" or club to join, we are teased and deceived to do more than our bodies are designed for.
Whether you are male or female, we (I am lumping myself in this too) tend to do for others first, then ourselves. Women though, I think are most guilty of this. We push, do, serve, and teach all the time for the betterment of others, and sometimes (but often) for ourselves.
We need to remember to take time for ourselves. It is okay to devote time, love, and effort to those we love but sometimes we need to slowdown, pause, and remember the motivation for all we do.

About Lisa Buffaloe:I’m a joyfully in love with God, Christ follower. I’m also a writer, speaker, radio host for Living Joyfully Free Radio, and a happily married mom of a son in college.
I’m not a perfect wife, perfect mother, or perfect at anything. I keep a fairly clean house, cook semi-decent meals, and love to write. I’m a real life woman with real life problems. I’ve made stupid mistakes, sinful mistakes, and often traveled down the wrong roads. God never gave up on me, never let go, and He welcomed me home when I stumbled back seeking His grace.
