Smelling the roses

Today at work, things started out rough for me.
I had this lady in the drive through upset at me.
She was asking a lot of pointed questions, and my
A.D.D. was getting in the way.
I was trying so hard to work with her,
but I'd start stuttering and losing moments
in time and she was just upset.
She asked me for my name.
I looked up forgetting where I
was and muttered the worst response,
She was even more upset, and I had to give my name.
I really didn't want my bosses to have complaints about me.

I started feeling really upset inside,
I felt bitter and defeated.
I lost track of the big picture until...

My friend walked in
and pointed out something,
a mini miracle.

Rainbow, or a rainband
It was just a strip of
Color in the sky that
happened to be viewable
from the small window view
from inside the store.
It hadn't even rained.

This mini miracle was a comfort
from God reminding me
that he's here with me;
every step of the way.



Day 17: The Something I wish I was great at

Well, being human, there are lots of things I wish I could be greater at.

Personality wise, I wish I was better at exercising patience.

Physically, I just wish I was better in sports in general.
Or I wish I was greater at trying them out.
I'm more afraid of sports and looking silly, than actually sucking at them.
I played my very first game of soccer with friends last year after a quick
one on one session of the basics.
For having never played, I honestly wasn't terrible.
I had never tried soccer before because I was scared to try.

All in all I wish I was great at Taking Chances.

Miss Sally

So this is a few weeks late, but...

I bought a car :).
She's a 1996 Saturn.
I paid 700$.
Yes that's right only 7.
After 20 years of not knowing
what it is like to have a car of my
own, It's still pretty shocking.

I feel so blessed.
I still catch myself
walking to the passenger's side
not realizing I'm the driver.
