“When darkness falls upon you, turn your face to the sun and your shadows will fall behind you.” ~ Daniel Wicomb
Okay, I admit it. I am one of those “perky” people that
some MOST find annoying. Heck, I find myself annoying on most days, but in reality I have my grouchy moments. I reckon at some moments I can shock and awe with the same discerning grace of a toddler who earlier forwent the afternoon nap and is currently choosing to wait up for Santa. Have you ever witnessed that sort of meltdown? It’s more frightening than a group of Hell’s Angels parked on the front lawn wielding guns, chains and other sorts of sporting objects. But, as usual, I digress.
Last week was a bit of a pill. Okay last week was a humdinger of a pill. It finally culminated into the Friday from hell. It rarely ends well when right out of the gate, rushing not to be late for work, and you can’t seem to locate the car keys. When I finally located them and drove in, I was about 15 minutes late. And my boss was waiting at my desk to take care of some stuff. And as I rushed in head down I noticed I had on one blue shoe and one black. Only, not a blue shoe and a black one of similar character. The heels were the same 3inch variety, but that’s as far as it got in similarities. Anyway, after a day of these small rankling grievances by 5PM I was working up to a meltdown of toddler proportions and looking forward to an evening hiding in the closet waiting for the week to pass.
The thing is, as I was recovering from the tough week, feeling sorry for myself, dreading that it was already Sunday and on Monday I’d have to go in and face it again, Orlando happened. Somehow an atrocity like Orlando makes me feel pretty dumb about lamenting the minute moments of my life. My heart goes out to all the families affected by this. My heart just goes out.

Tragic, tragic things by some pretty messed up people. I am glad there are many others in this world that are gracious and loving. May the good overwhelm the bad. I have hopes for humanity 🙂
