So, you’ve been warned – this will be a pathetic, self-indulgent post. Run before it’s too late!
First of all, if my 2.78 readers wouldn’t mind praying for a friend of mine named Carolyn H.; she is having surgery on Monday 11/2. She and I appreciate your thoughts!
Secondly, work continues to get worse every……single……moment! I will not get into the details here because, well, I live them most of the time! But it seems as though the owner’s nine lives may finally be up. He has definitely manifested some really amazing life savers to date, but his magic seems to be running out…….or at least put off the inevitable……which appears to be crashing into the present with a huge and unfailing force. While there is a huge part of me that is freaking out to be out of a job, I would be lying if I said “the end” would also offer long awaited relief!
Health wise I have had a few struggles lately. While I don’t feel comfortable sharing the details in this venue, they HAVE caused me some tough spots. These spots have varied from concern to inconvenience to down right freaking me out. So, if you have a spot on your prayer list (if you are one that has such as thing) I would also appreciate a shout out on my behalf as well. If not, your positive thoughts will be accepted! 🙂
And on a random note, I am disappointed in myself in that I am constantly surprised by how very self-centered so many people have become! I mean, at my age, I should be much more jaded or at least conditioned to realize that this is a common piece of society today. Yet, I expect people to be considerate, understanding, and even POLITE. Sheesh, what do I even know?!?!?!!?! I forgot that today most look out “for number one” and that’s about it. Maybe I am that way, too, come to think of it!
And I realized tonight, perhaps though it is not constant, that it would be amazingly wonderful to spend one evening without the TV blaring, without everything centering around the kids, and maybe allowing the working adult who drives 70+ miles a day to have some peace and quiet for maybe an hour. That would be heaven on earth. And that is the springboard of the pity party…….
