What's S-t-r-e-t-c-h-i-n-g me now?

I Need A Break

Have you ever come to a point where you know you need a few days off?

The time has come for me.  I’m taking a couple of days off from work, and I’m heading to NYC with my family for some time away together.  The Stretched blog will continue, so don’t go away.  It should be great to have some rest and recharge for the final sprint to the end of 2011.

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”  Matthew 11:28-30

So seriously, do you need a break?  When will you stop to take a breath?
