Argh! Where is my patience today?! I have been testy all day. The Hunter needed some logistical help with dropping off his truck at the mechanic and I snarled as I had to wait an extra 10 minutes. I was testy when our walk got cut short, when I had to help him with some paperwork and THEN I was snippy when I lost a project. It hasn’t been a day of rainbows and sparkles. Poor guy, he’s walking on egg shells.
It could be worse. I need to think about how lucky I am for all that I have. My father didn’t kill himself the day before Thanksgiving like a former coworker is dealing with. She’s a wonderful person and her relationship with her dad was fraught, but my heart goes out to her. He was in his 80’s.
My day is much better than another person who I found out killed herself several years ago. She was a very talented vendor, but during the recession she was laid off, then her husband divorced her and I guess it was just all too much for her. I only found out about this last week. My heart ached for her. The last time I saw her was when I was out with a friend at a super trendy restaurant. We were trying to weasel our way in and the maitre d’ wasn’t having it. Then I saw her and she was with a girlfriend. Her girlfriend pulled the right strings and 5 minutes later we had the best seat in the house. They loved having our company and a splendid time was had by all. I am happy that was my last memory of her, but also sad that it is the last one.
My day is better than the client I met last week who had several cars stolen from their parking lot. His car was one of them.
My day is better than many, many other people. I need to remember this. Now, let me go give the Hunter a hug and tell him I love him. I am grateful that he’s in my life. I have to remember that.
