A little sidetracked…

Good Monday morning! I’ve been a little under the weather with allergies and sinus, so that’s the cause of my few posts in the last week. It’s crazy how off kilter it can make you. My writing has suffered along with everything else.

Do you ever get sidetracked? Is it hard for you to get your focus back? For me it’s been difficult. I felt a little better last night, but just couldn’t stay focused. I guess the stuffy nose and slight headache made my brain way too fuzzy to concentrate.

Of course sometimes we do need to just put things aside and wait for our head to clear. I guess if I had written anything in the last couple of days it would have been strange. What I mean is it would not have made a lot of sense. With my fuzzy head my thinking process was slower than normal. Hopefully I’m on the road to recovery. I definitely have to get back on track and make up for the lost writing time.

As always, good writing and May God Bless you…

When life gives you lemons…

As you can tell from the title it’s been a tough week. I’ve been battling a cold or sinus or crud, whatever you want to call it. Since it’s tax season I’ve been working a lot of hours through the fog. 

Of course as it usually goes, life goes on even when you’re sick. My son started football training for tryouts in May. My husband and I have always supported him in whatever he wanted to do. He played baseball for about five years and always wanted to play football. He’s on the 4-H Shotgun team and does really good with that. He loves anything outdoors. Football scares me due to the injuries that can occur, but I know I have to let him do things. 

Well as you know I’m a Children’s Minister. Last night I’d prepared for the kids to watch a Bible DVD cartoon since I wasn’t feeling well. Since the teacher of the preschoolers didn’t show up I had all the children. Well as I tried to turn the projector on I soon realized something was wrong. I spent a few frustrating minutes trying to get the projector to connect to the laptop, but to no avail. I then moved the children to one of the rooms that has a large screen television and dvd player.

As I watched the children sit and watch the film I realized how lucky I am. I’m given such a wonderful chance to make a difference in the lives of these children. I smiled to myself and thanked God for the opportunity I’ve been given.

That’s the attitude I decided to adopt with my son on the football thing. He was so excited and I don’t want to dampen his fun by being overprotective. I’ll just be watchful 🙂 

So when life gives you lemons, smile and enjoy every sour bite.

As always, good writing and May God Bless You…Image
