Stress Reduction: Think SMALL

Our New Key Hooks

Good Morning, God!

After pondering BIG social structures, I thought it might be productive to ponder some VERY SMALL stress reducing changes.

This is our most recent “structural” change, God. For some time I have hung my keys on the key hook at  the right. It worked fairly well.
I had tried to get Kit to have a place for his keys — without success. But, in a little shop in Kennebunkport, Maine, I saw this fish key hook and bought it! When we got home, I asked Kit where would he like it. We realized it had to be placed just as we got up the stairs from our garage below. Of course, God, we needed it CLOSE to the garage! We had been trying to get our keys UP to the second floor! That was just too far for us on some days.
Gosh, God, that sounds pitiful — but that’s the way it is. Realizing our limitations, we are both doing better at “remembering” where are keys go and where they are! 
Now I am going downstairs to fetch the coffee I just made and take it back up to bed. That is another small “stress reducing” change we instituted many months ago — having our first cup of coffee together in bed.
As a stress preventer it is even better than our repositioned key hooks. Normally, Kit is The Coffee Maker, God, but he is still having a bit of vertigo so I am filling in. Like the key hook placement, it’s a matter of proximity. Chatting, right next to each other, is quite different than chatting at a table.
