Maintenance with Uplift!

Two maintenance trucks working together

Good Morning, God!

My special projects are almost over and now — as I look around me — it is onward to MAINTENANCE.

I’d like it, God, if maintenance got more RESPECT. In my internal “games” I give LOTS of points for “projects” but very few for maintenance tasks — like putting things away.

I want to change that, God. In fact, maybe I will pause now and put away a few things. Yes! Now it is a little easier to think.  Help me, please, God, to embrace the small acts of just “putting things away.” A surprising view of two men working together up high

Another change long overdo, God, is to ask for help — or maybe it is to appreciate how much better two minds are than just one? No, it is BOTH. Asking for help is really hard for me — even though I love giving it.

I think it might go back to my schooling where “asking for help” was cheating? Or maybe it is a cultural fear of being “needy?”  Both of those have a “point” but I have clearly overdone them.

Ah, but You just pointed out that I need to begin by acknowledging that I NEED HELP!  Of course, I do! And, besides, it is so much more fun to work with others than, alone.

So, today, God, help me give myself MAJOR POINTS for taking care of myself.  Both my body and my office show signs of excess accumulation. IN is easy. OUT is hard. But, not THAT hard. Here is a New Day WAITING for me to process tasks that have been kind enough to wait. So, ONWARD to a day, at least partially devoted to MAINTENANCE.
