Can it be Monday again already?


The days seem to be zipping by.  School is out.  Swimming lessons have begun. Too bad us parents don't also get the summer off.  I'm convinced all jobs should come with sabbaticals.  I could certainly use the time to rejuvenate and recharge.  As it stands I'm tired and my creative energy has been zapped. I suspect this lack of creativity rolls over into work and affects my performance there as well.  In two weeks time our fourth doctor will be back from maternity leave and I'll get a bit more time off.  Until then you'll have to bear with me.

Today I was reminded that there are people out there who do not like or respect me.  This particular person, who shall remain nameless,  is not a happy person by nature.  She has had a tough life (especially early on).  I am striving to have compassion and understanding for her. And so I'm sending out this prayer:  I sincerely hope she finds love and joy in this lifetime.  I hope she is able to overcome her bitterness and sorrows.  I know, deep down, her heart is good and true.  May she find peace.  

Is there someone out there that needs your prayers?

How someone could not like you is a bit baffling to me.
Angry at times, sure. But to not have respect for you?? There aren't many people I respect more than you.

I wish for her peace.

Your Bench Mondays make me notice how quickly time is going by. And I'm not even reading this until Wednesday! Wow!

I think we all know people that need our prayers. Thanks for the reminder.

Shalet, I have an award for you on my site. Stop by when you get a chance to pick it up.

Those feet on that bench look like they are enjoying their summer! Parents should get some sort of break, where they can veg out, create, or do whatever

Shalet, there is a person in my life right now that I to send the prayer to. Thanks for the prayer to remind me that she may just need to find love or to be loved. I don't usually have that kind of thought for her...
