A little bit of too much information, but they saved me at work this past week. I am always so prepared, but this week has been a big blur of rushing around which has made me a little bit forgetful at times.
The Ability to Write
With pen and paper. I needed to print out about 10 sets of directions for Barry and his father's trip this weekend, which was the perfect time for my printer to quit. But then, as I sat there with a throbbing finger hand writing the directions out, I found myself thinking that at least I have the ability to write. At least I am healthy and have this ability. I take the ability to write with an actual pen and paper for granted sometimes.
I might complain about the cold and snowy weather sometimes, but I need to remind myself that at least we are lucky enough to be in a location where we don't need to worry about typhoons/hurricanes, tornadoes and earthquakes.
Ahh, coffee. I love my coffee, it makes my mornings a little brighter and helps me get on the go fairly quickly. This past week I have needed my coffee more than normal. I have felt very exhausted and restless every single morning.. without coffee, I am sure I would have been late to work at least one morning this past week.
I am thankful that I know common courtesy, because it appears that a lot of people still don't. Any time I open a door, I look behind me and in front of me to see if someone is coming out, and if they are, I always hold the door open for them. Apparently this act of common courtesy is lost on a lot of people that I work with. The main door to our offices has been slammed in my face more times then I could count this week, and with the way I have been feeling, it has irked me all the more then normal. It is people like this why we now need a week dedicated to 'Random Kindness'. This should be an every day occurrence, but unfortunately, people nowadays are too busy and on the go to pay attention to the people around them.
