Good Morning! – It’s day four of a new year.
Today I read: All the great blessings of my life are present in my thoughts today. Phoebe Cary.
YEAH! What a great thought and attitude to share with others this day. That was my start of day intention.
Then, with a heart full of gratitude I decided to edit and work on a whole chapter of my manuscript, before breakfast. I reconfigured and changed some stuff but when I came to save it………incomprehensible messages popped up…..ie unable to save. I tried Save as…..unable to save………I decided to exit….If you exit all your work will be lost. You must save!………Save please…….my thoughts were still patient……Unable to save!.
Grump began to surface. I’ll unable to save YOU!
Enough…..said. Only to confirm….It really did take no more than four seconds before I felt ready to take to the computer with an axe.
I switched it off. We had breakfast.
Now, in quietness and peace I resolve to go back and do it all again. (No, not easy! I struggled I would far rather have read a book or painted a picture or scrubbed a floor BUT…….. I did it. Now I can honestly say……
I give thanks in this day that I did have a hard-copy of that Chapter. All I really had to do was make the changes again……..
Blessings in our lives are millions. My hope for all of you is that you can work through and if you have to……start again!
Peace once more is mine. This my mid-week prayer for you. When the pendulum swings don’t let Grump win.
Joy! and Peace!
HOPE YOUR DAY IS GOLDEN.
I guess it is hard for us to grow in patience if we do not have anything to be patient about. This was a growth time, I’m sure. Being angry would not have made it any easier, would it? I’m glad it is done now and you have remained at peace.
Thanks. Just what I needed today.
