Self care is never a selfish act—it is simply good stewardship of the only gift I have, the gift I was put on earth to offer to others. Anytime we can listen to our true self and give it the care it requires, we do so not only for ourselves but for the many others whose lives we touch. Parker Palmer

 Have you ever noticed how frequently Jesus stepped aside from teaching, healing, and feeding to quietly pray? All the gospels ensure we know that such acts of care enabled him to do all those transforming things.
