If I am not for myself, who will be for me?

Lori, I loved your comments, but you misquoted Rabbi Hillel at the end. It is an important difference -- in line with your advice. If the woman doesn't take care of herself, she won't be able to take care of her family, and "if Mom's not happy, no one's happy."

To care for others, we must care for ourselves

I think this is a timely advice. We must take time to read Scripture, pray and meditate. Learn some skill, so that we can help our families and others. Women tend to be neglected by others, even by their family members. I have been coordinating the care of my elderly father and special needs brother who lives with him. The former was hospitalised from mid February to March for a bone degeneration complaint. My brother went for respite care. The other brother was on call as a medical doctor. They did appreciate this but not easy to get extended familiy's help.
