I appreciate the point that our attitude is so important in helping to reduce our stress level. I also think it is a mistake to always say "yes" to everything we are asked to do. A sister at church once asked the question: "If you never say 'no', how can you really mean your 'yesses?" While it is important to serve, we need to take care of ourselves and schedule time to replenish our strength emotionally and physically. When my children were still at home, I would often block out spaces on my calendar with the words: KEEP THIS DAY FREE. I would consider that an appointment with myself that was as important as any other responsibility.
