Lookin' for some breathing space

Doesn't everybody call their mom on Mother's Day?  If you can, of course...and if she lives out of town such that you just can't pop in and say hi...

And do you know what she did?  She said she was worried about me because I've been so busy.  And she quoted scripture:

...What you are doing is too much.  You...will wear yourself out.  The work is too heavy for you; you cannot handle it alone.  Ex. 18:17-18 NIV
