 “I feel thin, sort of stretched, like butter scraped over too much bread.” ~Bilbo Baggins, The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien

Have you ever felt like Bilbo Baggins, thin and stretched, like butter scraped over too much bread? I know I have. Too many responsibilities, time commitments, priorities. Too many items on my to-do list at the end of the day, too many requests unfulfilled, emails unanswered, words unwritten.
