Monday, August 20, 2012
Mondays are usually a promising day for me...today, I arrived at my place of work today with several thoughts flitting about in my un-caffeinated brain (neither tea nor coffee had made the break yet). "It's Monday, stay positive" "Thank You for this job!!!" "How can I adjust that budget?" "Better get the notes formulated from the weekend's retreat on..." "wow, I left my desk THAT MESSY?"
Got the coffee now taking a quick break before diving in. Here are a few of the blogs I read on a regular basis:
Your Success Corner
VERY good tips this morning; deal breakers, actually - thank you RENA WILLIAMS
This one is NOT so ugly he's cute!!!
One Perfect Bite
Beautiful delicious - and ATTAINABLE recipes!!!
These are just the first three that grabbed me this morning. I'll share more another day.
Because it's Monday and my last week was fraught with meeting after meeting I have a lot of minutiae to catch up with...please pay my friends a visit but I'll have the tea on again tomorrow!!!!

We went on a short day trip to Wallowa to help out with the service up at the lake...
After our dip we continued on the road home...after saying thank you for this beautiful place...
On our way home we saw riotous colors and heard the birds singing...it was almost TOO beautiful sometimes.
It's been a difficult painful year - sadness returns from time to time but always in my heart I am grateful. I'm grateful to be home, I'm thankful EVERY SINGLE DAY to be home and to be an Indian woman living in centuries old traditions...
and I'm thankful for each new day...it's true what has been said..."Weeping may endure for a night but JOY comes in the morning!"

I will share with you the outcome though.
I am not the judge.
Whether I agree with your viewpoint, opinion, feeling, action, inaction, response, unresponsiveness, any of it. Whether I like or dislike your outfit today, the way you fix your hair or even the label of your shoes...or even if I've staunchly defended you in the wake of what seemed to me to be ludicrous accusations, I'm not here to judge, when it's time for me to take that place, I'll have to go alone and Someone else will do the judging.
I am not perfect.
A flawed creation is one who can change. For some reason this is exciting, not discouraging. A daunting task looms though, if I look at myself in the mirror and ignore such flaws. I choose to be thankful for those who willingly point out my many flaws...Someone will help me help me change.
I don't know everything.
Although I've been on this earth a fairly long time, my learning curve varies. Some things I learned quickly and avidly. Others, I was a little slow on the uptake. I still have much, much more to learn. Hopefully though, I'll study hard and pass the tests...one day I hope to make Someone proud.
It was a long, difficult weekend. The lessons learned came at a price but at the end of the day, I would not trade these lessons for another moment. THANK YOU
