I posted this on Facebook but it bears repeating.
It's great if you can put things down and walk away,
leave them by the side of the road
and never look back.
But if you can't, if carrying that load is a part of life,
try carrying a little less at a time.
(And bend with your knees, not with your back.)
In all seriousness,
take care of yourself,
and hug the ones you love.
