I love this wisdom in theory.
In real life and real time?
I generally find the overly talkative to be boring. The intolerant – intolerable. The unkind – in great need of being slapped into next Tuesday. And I am rarely (if ever) grateful to the little buggers.
Matter of fact this sort of clueless behavior really “stirs my stew.” I expect the people I’m in relationships with to shut-up sometimes and let me talk! If I have to deal with anyone I need to tolerate to appreciate?
Well, I can’t go there.
My idea of kindness is to just be nice if it kills you. And it won’t kill you so… BE NICE. Be nice or get lost! Then I can at least be grateful because you are no longer in my face.
What can I say? I’m not perfect. I could say; “God ain’t finished with me yet.” I could say; “I’m doing the best I can with what I have.” But I know that’s a lie. So, I won’t say either of these things. What I will say is the following. I wake up every morning with prayers in my heart. I pray that I be forgiven for anything I need be forgiven for. I pray that you and your loved ones are very, very well.
I pray that we are open to the Divine Guidance available to us all day long.
Most days? I am grateful to wake-up once more afforded by Grace to say my prayers. Being grateful to my “teachers?” I’m workin’ on it.
Gracious light alive I’m workin’ on it.
Have a sweet one!
