Oh, what a day….

A day where it felt as if every situation I encountered turned into a complex issue…

A day where our routine tasks such as payroll became complicated by flooky computer issues, resulting in everyone almost being paid double…

A day where I thought I would celebrate my switch over to Verizon, only to find out that my new Verizon phone didn’t work (after I terminated my Sprint account) and since it was ordered on-line, they are the one’s that have to send me a new one. So I have been without a phone since 3pm yesterday.

A day when I left my dog home to enjoy chasing squirrels and came home to a very wet muddy dog chasing rain drops…(and very happy dog!)

A day when I rushed into the office and unknowingly forgot to close my back seat window. I marveled at the frequent downpour’s throughout the later afternoon, that is until I got to my car…

A day when I felt tired, weary, foggy and a bit off all day long.  My co workers are great at helping me get through a day like today and I am thankful for Heather and Laura, but I left the office and prayed, asking God to remind me of what is important and to inject my heart with some perspective and hope….although this is not the actual, this is the clarity of which I saw a beautiful rainbow after work. This rainbow offered me exactly what I prayed for….perspective and hope.

I think I will call it a day while I am hanging onto two valuable things. Makes my day worthwhile….oh, what a day!

An ending worth celebrating…

Today I enjoyed lunch with my friend Ryan. Ryan is pictured in the photo on the left as the last one on the right! 🙂

I have known Ryan for almost 16 years and so the fact that he completed High School today makes me feel a little old.

Ryan is delightful…he is quieter in nature, but almost always has a witty something to say. He shared much today with his Mom (my very dear friend) and myself about what he has observed and noticed about life and relationships. Ryan doesn’t miss much and is wonderfully self-aware.

It is my prayer that Ryan will continue to grow in his confidence, heart, passion and maturity in the coming months. I am sure that at times it must have felt like school would never end, but today it did and Ryan, that is an ending worth celebrating. Looking forward to attending your graduation celebration!
