Today's Moment

In my last post, I talked about noting the special moments in life.

Well this was my precious moment today:

If you were in the locker room at my place of employment at around 10:45 this morning, you would have found me leaning in the corner of the lockers opening a card. It was a card that was given to my mother the day before from a coworker of mine. It was addressed to me.
Somehow my gut told me what was inside. I didn't want to believe it. And to my great despair, I was right on the money. My lovely coworker, whom I have grown really attached to (which isn't a new thing) decided it was time to leave. She was enduring things that she shouldn't have been at all... I knew it truly was only a matter of time. Because of that I cherished the days we worked together even more.
She left without warning so the note was her 'goodbye' to me. I stood there, hunkered in the locker room about to cry. But they really were selfish tears... I know there are better things out there for her and I'm wishing her all the best.

The fact that she took the time to actually say 'goodbye' to me in the best way she could at the moment, touched me.

She had a wonderful smile. Yes, and an infectious laugh. Her sense of humor was delightful. I will miss her dearly but hope to keep in touch.

Lovely Lisa cared.
That was precious to me.

Posting for the Sake of Posting

Despite popular speculation, I haven't died. No in fact I've been finding a lot of things to fill my time! The time I normally would be spending here boring, I mean entertaining you, I have done other things. I know I've neglected this bloggy land, but trust me I log on here to daily or so to keep up with all the lovely blogs I follow. Not a post goes unread :)
Also I've felt very much insignifigant. Very much.... boring, actually. Life is very busy and keeping me on my toes, but it's just not something to post about! I dont know how to explain it. Maybe I've become completely blind to the "postable" subjects that happen everyday. In the busyness of my life and focusing on my next engagement or next scheduled commitment, I've lost sight of the small things that normally catch my watchful eye... that normally bring me great delight.

Definitely! I believe that's it. I haven't taken time to stop and smell the roses.

Ok now that I have realized that, I am starting on a new foot today. Right now in fact. I normally notice every little thing but haven't noticed much of anything lately. My mind has been focused on seemingly important things, but appearently they are not. Actually the narture of my recent consuming thoughts drain me of energy and life and zeal.

Starting this moment I am giving them to God and looking forward to the next moment when I am able to again smell the posies and notice the little, but precious things in life.

Expect me here again soon. :)
