This past week had its challenges.
Those challenges led to a very underwhelming work week.
But as difficult as the week was, it was “good” for me and it led to taking Friday – Sunday (today)…completely OFF!
Bear and I went to town on Friday morning – EARLY! We stopped for a walk on the way and then I took my time doing some food shopping at a few locations – locations with good shade parking and it was early.
Then I had a chance to talk with my boss and friend of 13 years duration and also my neighbor and friend of 8 years duration and I prayed and I thought and I finally settled and let go of the light work week and took the weekend to find my peace.
I found it.
I found peace in the kindness and thoughtfulness of my boss, my neighbor, my folks, and the quiet of my home space…
“We cannot change our past… we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. And so it is with you… we are in charge of our Attitudes.” Charles Swindoll
My reaction is quiet.
And time with dear Bear and Auggie.
That tail – that tail alone makes me smile and laugh.
And this tail.
This tail in sweet slumber on my bed.
LOVE and PEACE!
And even the weather cooperated with cool temps…
…and sweet rain!
Sweet tails/tales of a week that is ultimately VERY good. I am grateful for the challenging, for the support, for the love and peace and for all lessons learned.
Sweet tales indeed.
*** in light of last week’s uber-light work week, this coming week will be head’s down and full speed ahead work-wise so posts may be light/non-existent as I catch up. Happy Week!
