TLC Tuesday: What if you missed Tuesday?

posted by mpratt

Maureen Pratt Author PicIf you have a chronic illness or live with serious pain, you know that sometimes, you “miss” a day or two in the week. It’s too hard to get out of bed. You are going through medical tests, and the outside world seems to disappear into the technicality of prep and procedure. You’re brain-fogged, and even putting together the coffee pot seems impossible.

You might miss church on Sunday. Prayer group on Wednesday. Choir rehearsal on Thursday. Yes, you might even miss TLC Tuesday!

What, now?

Today’s suggestion:  You can still benefit from TLC (or any other day you miss).  No need to skip it just because you’ve missed it. Compensate for that “miss” by a “make-up” on a day when you are feeling better, or are better able.  So, if today isn’t Tuesday, no worries! Do something nice for yourself or someone else, anyway.

We all need a little TLC. Why not Tuesday (or another day?)

Chronic Pain and Illness: Why the Front Office Matters
They are more than just bodies that stand or sit between you and your doctor. They know more than what your co-pay is or what the office hours are. But, oh, how often, do we forget that the front office workers at a physician's office matter, really, they do!  And the better we can work with them,

TLC Tuesday: A Breath of Fresh Air
Today, give yourself a breath of fresh air. Not just a shallow, timid gasp. A full-fledged, rejuvenating intake of blessed and cleansing oxygen. When we're busy or tense, stressed or preocuppied, we might ignore the simple ways that we can reconnect, even for a moment, with God's creation and the
