Three really hard little words to say.
I have said them...a lot...
It would seem that I have offended several
people in different ways.
I am an equal opportunity offender.
Friends at church are unhappy with me.
Friends at Co-op...including one student.
Even one of my own children had issues with
me this week. Who would have "thunk" it???
Last Sunday, I was ready to pack it in. To feel
sorry for myself and just throw up my hands in
surrender. To quit trying. Oh, I did feel sorry
for myself. Two women at church were feeling that
I don't care about them any more. Not True!
I just have to divide up my time now that there
are more people in our church.
Another friend was hurt by an issue at our
co-op that involved herself and my son. I love
this friend and it just about killed me to
have this strain in the friendship.
Two boys in my music class were very disappointed
by the music selections made. They were hoping for
something less choral and more "rocky". I just
couldn't find a "rock song" for Thanksgiving.
Our book club got a bit spirited in the level of
debate...at one point. It all ended fine...but
that was close.
Tension...everywhere I turned.
It seemed that I was the epicenter.
There was confusion over a sleepover and
I probably stepped in where I did not belong.
You know those verses about the tongue and
how hard it is to tame it?
I relate very well to those...
I made my husband return a phone call yesterday
because I was afraid I might make an offer I
would resent later if I was the one who called.
I just do these things. I want to please people
and therefore promise things that make me crazy
Here's hoping for a calmer and more agreeable week.
I don't want to offend or hurt anyone else.
If you are one of the beneficiaries of my thoughtlessness
and you are reading this now...I am so sorry!
