Pancake Tuesday and Seniors…

Today is still crazy cold.  I feel bad because I saw Josh’s snow pant was left behind.  I didn’t see it in time to take it to him.  🙁 I’m sure he froze!!!  Oh well, I can hope that he will remember next time.

It’s Pancake Tuesday… I must be so out of the loop.  I didn’t realize this was a real thing.  You probably knew this but “Shrove Tuesday is observed by many Christians, who “make a special point of self-examination, of considering what wrongs they need to repent, and what amendments of life or areas of spiritual growth they especially need to ask God’s help in dealing with.”

What wrongs do I need to repent?  Sadly, my biggest flaw is the impatience I have with my children.  I hate that they know how to push my buttons.  Buttons that I don’t even know I have.  I hate when I am spazzing about something and then the phone rings… immediately my tone changes.  Uhhh… I think that every time with guilt.  I love these beings of mine more than anything. Patience, is what I need to seek.  Long-suffering is another thing I could improve on.   Today for supper, I’ll make pancakes and seek God’s help in my weak areas!

Today I had to make lunch for the Ear Company.  I had it all planned out.  I left in plenty of time to make a stop at the grocery store for my last few items.  As I was checking out, my card was declined.  Grrrrr.. I knew I had money and this was so frustrating.  I need a new bank card.  I then felt flustered.  I raced over to the office, grabbed Sanj’s card and headed back to the store.  Of course, there was no parking.  Then the checkout line was long.  As I was rushing by, I couldn’t help notice the senior citizens, as I maneuvered around them, as they were going to slow… as I made eye contact, this senior smiles, such a sweet smile.

I made it to the office in plenty of time.  I had lunch served with time to spare.  I couldn’t help but think of that senior.  I wish I could pace myself  like that, now.  I want to enjoy life now too, as well as when I retire.  Sometimes rushing around is pointless.  Sometimes the only one suffering is me.
