Today, overall, was a good day. I am saddened to realize that tomorrow will be the last day that I officially get to work with my coworker of the last 3.5 years. She is leaving the firm after about 16.5 years. For those of you that know me, I am not a big fan of change. I know it will be better for her in the long run.
Today, I was listening to "Unstuffed" by Ruth Soukup. For me, it seemed to really help things click. We are trying to pick a weekend this month to try to work on being "Unstuffed". I need to organize and purge a lot of things. Since Mom passed in October, having to contend with her stuff is not what I intended, but it's necessary. There was also a section about friendship and she made some very valid points there too. Including the fact that relationships are intentional. You have to give grace sometimes as well as receiving it. As I was listening to her book today, she said some things that fell in line with some of the things that Sis. Thetus Tenney said last week at the NTX Joy Conference. She said that you can't really compare your season to anyone else's season. At one point, Ruth Soukup mentions that she didn't have friends who had small children, etc., so she really didn't have anyone who were experiencing her same troubles. Friendships, like any relationship, needs to be nurtured.
Foodwise, not great, but we did have a tennis banquet tonight. Steps, also not great, but tomorrow is another day. Hope everyone has a great night!
