Where Does My Joy Come From - 20

Wednesday, January 20, 2016

Where does my joy come from today. .. ....sat down this morning with my hubby to enjoy a nice breakfast before work. Just as I took the first bite, my phone rings, it's work "Good morning! Did you know you are on at 8?" Argh! For some unknown reason I was convinced my shift started at 10 am. This never happens to me. I quickly dove into the shower, instructed hubby what kind of lunch to pack, and stuck my fried egg between two slices of bread to eat in the car. Off I went. Had to get gas and it is a 35 minute drive. So as I am beating myself up, and speeding down the highway (well okay.... I might have gone 3 over speed limit), I thought how ridiculous I am being. So I thought about all the people in this world who have real problems. So I started praying for homeless people, neglected children, battered women, sad and lonely folk, my Spark friends, and basically everyone under the sun minus Mickey Mouse and Snoopy. By the time I got to work, all was right in my world again. I was still a little embarrassed, but hey, got a lot of praying done. Hope you all could feel it. .....my friend had her Shepherd at work today. Poor thing is getting older, and blew out her knee a few days ago. I could not believe how well she walked and how composed she was. She is not a candidate for surgery, due to her personality. She would not be able to stay as still as needed for recovery. So great to see she is doing okay and working on her Zen. .....daughter Sarah spent all day pre cooking meals and kept sending us pictures in our family chat on whatsapp. She kills me with that. I will need to pick her brain on how I can start that for Craigy and myself. She has amazing ideas and I believe she used some Spark recipes.

    oh - a family whats app... that is nice! Good for finding a way to calm yourself down while driving to work and being late. I hate when this happens to me and I also get very upset. I will try your praying technique next time for myself!
