weekly planner - week 22

week 22 prompt - recall a time you really lived in the moment
living in the moment is something i strive for.  just being.  i practice at it daily but haven't mastered it by any stretch of the imagination.   there was, however,  a time i was so caught up in the lives of two birds outside my window that i swore i could understand what they were saying to one another.  nature has a way of slowing us down and making us appreciate god's beauty. 

during my bird watching i was truly lost in just being.  it was a precious gift and one that still brings about a joyful smile as i recall it.  have you ever had a moment of being fully present in the moment?

weekly planner - week 21

week 21 prompt - what is something that annoys you?
today my page was done because i was feeling especially annoyed by a rude secretary at a medical office.  she was wanting me to do something i really did not want to do or felt the need to do,  but i lost in that conversation and ended up doing it her way. 

it always makes me wonder there are some things that get me so wound up and other things just roll off my back.  i really would love to be "un-annoyable".  it hasn't happened yet in my 55 years so i'm guessing i need to be expecting a miracle.

what about you?  what is something that annoys you?  come on...i can't be the only one, can i?
