Good Day, God!
To be sure, the birds are only small black dots on this photo — but catching birds in flight is always a treat. They were flying home just as Kit and I were driving out to celebrate his half birthday. Half-birthday observances are one of his family traditions and I enjoy it.
I am slowly getting used to the idea of having enough time for myself. It isn’t easy as it sounds. Before I could depend on “Good Deed Doing” to provide the excuse for not managing myself well.
Now, I am nose to nose with the Call to upgrade my level of Personal Responsibility. Yikes! High Time! Yes, God, part of me does say that. But then I think how fortunate I was to have been able to slip and slide by growing-up for all these years!
That is yet another “voice” inside me. Needless to say, other voices are “Tisk Tisking” at that immature attitude. It was Robert Ornstein who wrote that we are not homogenized selves — but rather an assortment of “juntas” trying to take over the national TV station. That sure feels right, God.
So, now I am tackling Calendar Control! I’m firmly resolved to do no more double booking! That will be helped when I figure out how to sync iCal on my computer, iPad and iPhone. Thank goodness I can call Apple! Too bad, God, that there isn’t a problem-solving service like that for ordinary (non-tech) problems. They would make a fortune AND help so many people!
Now I am off to bed — to curl up with Judith Kolberg’s book: ADD-Friendly ways to Organized your Life. I’ve read it before. But this time I’m going to go really slow — then review and repeat and review it again. I am very thankful, God, that I have time for myself. Please help me use it wisely.
