It has been one of those really crappy days so far…
You know, the kind where:
you are exhausted because you were up all night with stomach pains, and you wake up for the 5th morning IN A ROW with a migraine, and you can’t get your prescription because you lost your driver’s license, and you can’t go in and replace your driver’s license because you can’t find your birth certificate (even though your mom works there), and then in an attempt to be productive, you turn on the sprinklers and while doing so trip UP the stairs (nope, not kidding) and sprain your wrist and hurt your poor toes, and then cause you’re hurting you don’t pay attention to the sprinkler placement and forget that your home office window is open and the next thing you know everything is soaked including your computer, printer, tons of paperwork, your old family photos that you haven’t gotten around to scanning yet, and more; and so then you dry everything off and it all seems to be in good order except that your internet won’t connect and your phone can’t decide if it wants to make calls (even though your phone was safe in your pocket and didn’t even get wet), and you JUST WANT A NAP?
Yeah, it’s been one of those days.
So what did I do about it? I complained on facebook, of course! (That IS what we’re supposed to do, right?)
And then I got a response from a guy that I don’t really know all that well. He added me to his friends because he’s and old friend of my dad’s. I heard that I met him once when I was 7 or so, but that’s based on what my dad told me, so who knows, right? (just teasing Dad!)
So anywho, he replied to my status update: “It’s God’s way of letting you know that you have good in your life. Can you say ‘balance’?”
And you know what, he’s really right. I am SO dang blessed in so many areas, sometimes I probably am in need of some humbling. And maybe I’ll not complain tomorrow online, just because of that. Besides, it’s all temporary stuff…I’m back on the computer again aren’t I?
Thank you, facebook friend….thank you for a reminder I DESPERATELY needed.
