It’s hard to unplug, recharge when you don’t know the meaning of relax

As I headed out last week week to take a few days to relax, recharge and rest with a few days of vacation by spending quality time with my family in Galveston, I suddenly ask myself why it’s so hard for me to unplug. I’m not talking about leaving a cell, phone, tablet or laptop computer behind for a few days. That’s easy for me to do. Honestly I’m old enough to remember the days when there were no cell phones. Our house still had a corded landline house phone to be exact. There was no voicemail to check or emails to check constantly.
I think I take after my grandmother though. She could not just sit and relax for any one moment of time. She was always up and about the house doing something, cooking, cleaning, doing laundry shopping, and fiddling with this or that. She didn’t have many hobbies, although reading the Bible did occupy her time when she wasn’t up and about. But, I think she saw it as her duty to keep the house running, organized, neat and clean and she saw herself as an important cog in the machine to keep the household going.
