Today, we wake up to a new week with new challenges, new normals, and new demands. We can’t control much of anything. But one thing we can control is how we treat ourselves. So as we face this new week, we ask God to help us stay away from the toxic self vs. self and to, instead, come around the table and sit next to ourselves as we would a dear friend. Offering support, offering snacks, offering care. Amen.
