The Sky Made Me Pause
I am a Type A personality. On the DISC Personality Survey, I am a Low D/High I. That means I like being in control, and I am constantly busy. I stay on the go from the moment I get up until I sit down for supper and watch reruns of Frasier. After that, I email or write or read or think. Always thinking. I awake during the night and make notes of things to do the next day. Ok, the truth is I drive myself bonkers! I truly need to relax more, and I am actively working on that through Healing Touch and Restorative Yoga Sessions at our office.
(Email me to schedule your session at our office. It is SO good!)
I was driving home one day, and I noticed the sky. Why had I missed looking at the sky in the past? Why did I just drive home and not take in my surroundings? I don’t know, but on that day, I noticed the sky. It was blue and had big puffy white clouds. It made me remember days of my youth when my sisters and I would look at the clouds and try to make images appear from their shapes. It reminded me of watching Sesame Street with my daughter and an episode on clouds. It reminded of God and His handiwork. It reminded me of grace and mercy and goodness and peace and love.
The clouds made me feel better. I am sure your life is busy, and you are most likely stressed many times during your caregiving journey. Might I recommend you take time to look at the sky?
Hope that gives you Something To Ponder.
Sometimes, You’ve Just Got To Laugh!
TEACHER: George Washington not only chopped down his father’s cherry tree, but also admitted it. Now, Louie, do you know why his father didn’t punish him?
LOUIS: Because George still had the axe in his hand?
