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.
