I suppose we all have weeks where we not only feel we’re living day-to-day but minute-to-minute.
That’s not necessarily a bad thing – it’s a predictable part of life. Times are busy, times are slow. Life is what it is and I find it incredibly helpful to keep basics in mind. Like:
- I won’t always be this busy.
- My spouse, family and friends love me all the same, busy or not.
- This, too, shall pass so seize the fun bits where they are.
Fun bits for me this week included a planning meeting that morphed into an informal mentoring session (where I was the recipient of excellent advice). Lunch with a friend. Breakfast with another. Meeting with a new-to-the-working-world woman and hearing her stories of growth since we last met. Crossing five things off my to-do list in one day. Realizing that there are colleagues at my company in different departments who will work incredibly hard to help me out on big projects.
How fortunate I am!!
And that’s not to mention that Kelly and I have most unexpectedly found ourselves fellowshipping with our former church on a regular basis. Our roots there are deep – deeper than I knew or could have imagined. Tilling the soil of the soul takes time, and is painful at points, but is so worth the investment. Every Sunday is a special (re)starting point of the week for me.
How blessed I am!
So yes, it’s been one of those weeks.
But what a week it’s been.
