Take five is something you say to someone to take a short break or rest. A five minute respite.
We do it often in our special education classrooms.
My youngest daughter stopped by yesterday afternoon to drop off her dog while she went to the lake and left me this treat.
A bag of snack size Take 5 candy bars.
They’re one of my faves. 🍫 Chocolate, caramel, and just a hint of salty crunch with a pretzel added to the mix.
I first tasted one years ago. I’ve worked at Saint Francis Hospital for many years. Every year they used to do an employee survey, and if you completed it, you got a Take 5.
She knew I enjoyed them, so she got me a bag to enjoy in recognition of my newfound employment. She told me I worked hard, now I could take 5. Take a short rest.
And a short rest it shall be. I’m back to work full time for the summer at the Children’s Hospital at St. Francis next week. I also have lots of learning to do myself before I begin to teach others to learn .
How about you? Do you need to take 5? Do you need to take a rest from something?
If so, by all means, Take 5! Rest! We all need to restore our soul. Even God did! On the seventh day. God rested.
Let’s all enjoy this long Memorial Day weekend and take five. Take a moment to slow down from the hectic pace this world constantly spins at, and give thanks for all those who died before us, especially those that died FOR us. Then take a little rest. 😴 Take 5. Let Christ restore your soul.
By the seventh day God had finished the work He had been doing; so on the seventh day He rested from all his work. Genesis 2:2
Love and laughter,
