The patience of a saint …

“They” say (again, with those “they” people) that good things happen to those who wait. Oy! I certainly hope so! By the way, I find it very funny that yesterday I wrote about procrastination and procrastinators and today I wrote about patience and waiting. Fueled by two TOTALLY different reasons I’ve had to wait. One by a source of annoyance and the other a source of joy and excitement! Life is just silly that way.

Well, I hope you all have a day (or a decade) where you have the patience of a saint!!!

Don’t wait …

I have NEVER been a procrastinator. NEVER. It makes me incredibly uncomfortable to wait until the last minute for virtually anything. Having to deal with people who do procrastinate is awful for me. Self-proclaimed procrastinators at least come with warning labels, HA! But it’s no less stressful for me to have interactions with them. It’s almost painful for me to experience. When procrastination by another party directly influences my life I find myself thinking that the person is selfish. I do what I can to avoid them in future situations where things need to get done. But unfortunately, this isn’t always possible. So. I must deal. Ugh.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you DON’T WAIT!!!

Technical difficulties …

I don’t always need to listen to music when I run but some days it’s a necessity to get through them. Music helps me “get lost” in my footsteps. Luckily this morning I didn’t need music because what I ended up with was a bunch of echos coming through my earbuds. It was super weird sounding! It was my music just in an echo version. Whoa. I’m not even sure what to blame for the issue either. My running app? My almost year old donut earbuds? Or perhaps it’s just my crazy phone, Sergio (of course, I named him), acting up again. Whatever it is, I probably should to get to the bottom of it before I actually NEED the music to run again.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you don’t have any technical difficulties!!!

Ain’t life grand …

At my age you would think that it’s safe to say that I know a lot about life. Some days, yes. But some days are a definite, NO. Strangely, this is actually one of my favorite things about life. The unpredictability is exciting to me. Waking up every day and knowing that ANYTHING is possible is HUGE. Yes, of course this can go either way. Good or bad. But that’s OK, because there is ONE thing I can say for sure about LIFE. If I surround myself with people who I love and who genuinely love me, no matter what type of day I may be having, life is just GREATER. It’s lived BIGGER when I risk opening my heart to others. Sure, it can take a lot of courage to do this, especially when you have been hurt before. But I have found that it’s worth taking the chance. Every. Darn. Time. Because life can prove to be one heck of a CELEBRATION when you find others to share it with you.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you are blessed to say AIN’T LIFE GRAND!!!

Home for the holidays …

There is a term that is used around this time of year that I didn’t quite understand until I had older kids who left home. I thought I understood the words, but I didn’t. At least not on a mom level. Now it is a term I use as frequently as life allows. And they are words that fill my heart with a joy I have never known.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you get to go HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS!!!

The ones who keep me laughing …

I am blessed to be surrounded by funny people. People who see the humor in life right along with me. Oh goodness, I appreciate these KOOKY souls!

Well, I hope you all have a day where you are thankful for the people who keep you laughing!!!

Play-doh …

I was super tired last night and slept hard. So hard that I slept the majority of the night on the right side of my face. I know this because my face has not recovered from it yet, specifically my puffy eye … and it’s passed noon! It’s like someone needs to come and mold me back into shape. What exactly causes this mush puff face thing? AGE? Because I don’t remember my face being distorted from sleep when I was in my twenties. Ah, the good ole days.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you don’t feel like play-doh!!!
