I’m sure you did. It is so easy to get wrapped up in our lives and slip into bad habits, but I plan to do my best to be kind everyday. I hope all of you will too.
This month I have been walking down memory lane with my daughter as we both cleaned out our closets. We are having some home repairs done. It is never fun to have people working in your home, but when you work from home and your child attends school on-line, it adds a whole different dimension especially when you throw in two dogs that bark every time someone walks in and out of the house or even by them.
This was our life all last week even on Election Day. The work was to continue this week, but due to unforeseen events, it has not. Work will resume next week and will not be completed until sometime the week after Thanksgiving. That week we will also have roofers working outside.
Yet, I know compared to those hit by Hurricane Sandy, we are fortunate. Reminding myself of this is how I survived last week and the delays. Plus, going down memory lane with my daughter had been fun even if the inconvenience is not. My home will once again return to normal when the work is completed. So many do not have that option on the East Coast. I’m still sending prayers to them.
I know all of you will continue to extend a helping hand where you can. I will too.
I find I cannot be on the Internet as much. Crazy things like the comments prior to our presidential election, and some of the responses post-election have me shaking my head. I do not understand meanness or intolerance to groups of people. The reaction to political and religious differences my country is showing to the world is an embarrassment.
It does clearly explain why our children have so many problems with kindness and acceptance of differences. I will not say more on the subject because I really do need to be kind even to those who cannot see how their words wound others or how their actions have the potential to inflict deeper wounds on our nation.
Instead I leave with this picture and thought.
