I just spent 20 minutes looking for a headband and growing increasingly angrier with each passing moment I wasted looking for it.
I am having one of those mornings where nothing has gone the way I had envisioned it would, where Number 7 is relentless in wearing me down, and where it’s not even 9:30 and I have lost my patience more times than I’d like to in the course of one week.
My husband has been in the hospital for three days.
I have been (barely) holding things together.
I had a post I really wanted to write today.
But the morning just hasn’t allowed for that.
I have turned things into end-of-the-world proportions.
When I eventually found my headband after a mini freak out, I finally came to my senses.
And I put things into perspective.
Under the circumstances, I am doing a pretty good job.
There is only so much I can accomplish in a day.
I need to reset the clock.
The post can wait.
So can a couple other things.
Please join me in taking a moment.
In slowing down.
In putting things into perspective.
Take some time to smell the roses today.
Whatever that thing is that just can’t wait?
Number 1! Please get me there!
