DAY 18: GOOD GRIEF TUESDAY

Here’s a little ditty from a few years back. That’s not to say that under “the perfect storm” of wrong circumstances I’m not fully capable of accomplishing this same feat today. But at the moment…so far, so good! 

 

I’m feeling a bit like Charlie Brown today.

A little chubby. Somewhat listless.

And convinced I couldn’t have messed things up worse if I tried.

After all, who misses four appointments in one day?

Who does that?

  • Who, out of four potential meetings with other human beings at a prescribed place and time, cannot, at a minimum, manage to make at least ONE of them?
  • Who, in a day overflowing with possibility, manages to actually accomplish LESS than if there had been no appointments made in the first place?
  • Who, by sheer ineptitude, manages to stumble downhill in such a way as to miss or be missed by four separate, unique individuals, all having virtually nothing in common except their membership in the human race, the fact that they draw breath, and their individual ill-fated attempts to connect with this particular person on a specific date in history?

And to think, it’s only Tuesday.

Good grief…

    Kay, I’m so glad my 4-in-a-day debacle could be a blessing to you! We all have those days (or seasons) when we say “who DOES that?” and then realize “oh wait, it’s me!” I’m glad we could commiserate, find grace, and live to fight another day together!
