Good Evening, God!
Such a wonderful day! Church, breakfast with my wonderful husband Kit, and then off to work. Hmm. Work? Actually, I am having so much fun that “Work Party” would be a better description.
So Thank You, God! Thank You for a Job to do and great people to do it with! The retirement residence where I served as library consultant for 14 years called me back out of retirement to deal with the angst of RENOVATION! They will end up with a beautiful new library — but first they have to go through the trauma of “destroying” their old library. So, I got called into help them over the hurdles.
It helps God, that I am a Biological Optimist. To me, it just seems easier to Hope than not. But, then, I am not the one who in the last two years brought the Library up to just about Perfect! I’m not the creator . . . it is not my “baby.” When the Parent App is running it’s so easy for it to overwhelm us!
I saw this just yesterday while going for my Saturday morning walk. A Mama Duck was crossing over with eleven ducklings following her. She was headed to the pond on the other side of the oleander hedge and the chain link fence. Her ducklings followed close behind — except for one little fellow who had to be repeatedly called back to her. The ducklings popped right through the chain link fence. Not Mama!
Up and down the fence she went — looking for an opening. All the time she was keeping her ducklings to her. Calling and Checking!
Did she fly over the fence? No . . . she wasn’t going to leave her ducklings!
She wasn’t Thinking Outside the Fence. She was totally caught up in her Mama Duck app. She didn’t have room or energy to remember that she could fly. I’ve been there, too, God!
