One of these days!

That went well.

The swimming I mean. On days one and two, I started by doing two laps using the breaststroke. I felt so good in the morning, so able. I was sore, but it was that kind of "good sore" you feel after exercising.

And so of course since I felt good with two laps, why not double it? Why not indeed!

I was on a roll, feeling proud and then, dunh dunh DUNH (how do you write that sound effect?) I swam myself into a flare.

Not smart. Not smart indeed!

To top it off, my computer went kaput in the middle of a manuscript. I paid $ 180.00 to have the hard drive replaced and it broke eight hours later. Then my husband was certain he was having a heart attack (he wasn't) and had to be taken to the hospital in an ambulance . . . AGAIN.

Have you ever had one of those weeks? Like you're in that old movie, Groundhog Day.

Me too. And this morning I had to remind myself of what these days look like from God's perspective. In the light of eternity, days like these are like a baby's first birthday party - unmemorable and super messy.

When I get to Heaven, I'm going to laugh about them. For now, I'll just stay in my chair, not working on my computer.

I need a good laugh, so can you tell me about one of your worst days?


  1. This is one of my best days/weekends, but I believe it will at least bring a smile. The first time I met you is the weekend I learned to laugh more often. You ushered one of the most life changing appointments into my life. Girlfriends, my very blank unstuck book, and time alone with my creator.

  2. Thank you for that Shae. What an honor it was to see God working in so many intimate ways. I'm so glad to hear you're laughing more often:)
