A storm blew in late yesterday afternoon. There were trees bending, limbs falling, buckets and buckets of rain and hail. We lost electricity for hours and I had a lasagna in the electric oven. Remember all that floor mopping I did over the weekend? A Great Dane trampling thru a muddy yard destroyed all that work. I had worked so hard to get the pool and house and everything ready for the all the kids coming tonight and as branches and debris fell into the pool I thought "oh hell girl, let it go." I pulled a chair onto the front porch with a good book and decided to enjoy the storm and thunder. I'm so damn uptight sometimes.
Today I will approach life with optimism. I will not only ask my co-workers "how are you today?" but will wait for a response while standing still instead of asking and walking at the same time.
I will stop for the moments that are happening instead of preparing for future moments like clean floors.
