I think the biggest thing that makes me cry is letting others down.
When I cut my finger, feel bad about others who are in pain that I had nothing to do with or watch an emotional movie or commercial—SURE I cry then, but what will make me cry quicker than anything is when—
I let someone down.
I don’t do it ON PURPOSE, of course. But still…I didn’t do something I was supposed to. I, what some call, DROPPED THE BALL. I guess that is why I don’t like that saying. For me, it’s a super painful personal statement.
I know that I’m human and I shouldn’t fret so much on human error, but I do. I should not forget things, do things the right way and follow through on things I’ve promised. I try my best, but sometimes things happen. I guess, grrrrrr…I drop the ball. UG! Again, hate that.
Today, Monday, just another day. I know every day is a gift. Every day is another opportunity. Every day is a new day. I am trying to keep my chin up and my attitude JOVIAL, but at this very moment, it’s difficult.
I know it will pass and hopefully I can make it up –the error, I mean–hopefully I can make it up to the person I let down.
But for now…I’ll just cry.
Have you ever had that problem? Your shoe keeps eating your sock. The sock creeps down past your ankle and then the shoe seems to just slurp it up like an ant eater sucking in his dinner. The whole sock ends up wadded up in your arch. How uncomfortable!
That was how I started my day. Not sure how I ended up out the door with the shortest socks I own on and not realize my shoe would satisfy itself all day with the continuous sock snack.
Once at work, I realized that the sock thing could not slow me down…not on a Monday! I didn’t do it at first, but soon I kicked off those shoes and put on my fuzzy pink shoes that I keep under my desk for emergencies. I do admit, the sock thing doesn’t really sound like an emergency, but the way I run here and there and everywhere on a Monday made the situation more dire than one might think.
Your foot cannot handle SOCK LUMP when you go back and forth to the office between every class, work on loading the kiln and getting it started, grade about 200 papers (so back and forth to turn in drawers), hang new artwork up (which means up and down on the step ladder), not to mention I still gotta TEACH IN BETWEEN ALL THAT! AND THAT IS THE SHORT LIST. Mondays are so very busy.
The sock eating shoe could have stopped me in my tracks (ha!) , but thanks to my fuzzy pink NON SOCK EATING shoes—I MADE IT …it was an awesome productive Monday!
Thank YOU LORD for pink fuzzy emergency shoes.
