This photo is of a picture taken by my Uncle Chuck Sutley many years ago and was a gift to us. It now hangs in our office/shop combo room over the computer.
So as I am sitting here pondering which simply inspired thought to share today (giggle) I look up and ... you guessed it...
Thank you, Uncle Chuck, for the inspiration for today's post...:-)
I was reading over at Gathering of Friends today
(see the link in sidebar)
and was prompted to think about
what I obsess over.
It is the need to constantly review
every conversation and rethink
everything I have said to find a way
to wonder how someone took
what was said.
Could I have inadvertantly
hurt someone's feelings?
Did they understand what I was
really trying to say?
my poor husband is so tired
of this horrible trait that I
have made a new resolution!
I "know", in my head, that to think
that everyone I talk to is sitting
around thinking about me after
I leave is absolutely nuts.
Do I critique their every word?
Of course not!
So, why then, do I think that they are
doing this to my every word?
...Guess it must be insecurity.
Well, I am a daughter of God and
as such am not in the business of
going around offending people purposely.
So...as of today...
my own words are going to roll
off my own tired brain like
"water off a duck's back".
There are more important
things to focus on...
