Thursday Morning

This morning on the way to work, I had this really great topic that I wanted to discuss with you all.  I was excited and couldn’t wait for my lunch hour to start writing it out.  Somehow over the course of the morning I completely forgot what it was.  I guess that it would have been a good idea to quickly jot down my idea on a scrap paper, the only problem was that I was driving down “94” (an expressway) and may have gotten into an accident. 

The truth is that I was running late this morning.  I was in a deep sleep and did not want to wake up the six times my alarm went off.  I mean I did, but only to hit the “snooze” button and make sure I didn’t actually hit “dismiss.”  I don’t even remember what I was dreaming about, I just remember how good it felt to be comfortably stretched out in my bed with my eyes sealed shut.  I don’t ask for much in life.  I enjoy sleeping, especially after having once worked a third shift job.  If there is one thing I don’t take for granite it is sleeping in my bed.  (Not a chair, or a desk, or while driving.)

Anyhow, I try to get to work at least fifteen minutes before my scheduled start time, but today I was looking at more like making it ten minutes before.  Do you ever get that feeling, that your whole day is being thrown off because you can’t abide by the schedule that you set for yourself?

To my surprise, I made every green light on the way to work.  I didn’t speed.  There was even one light that I remember thinking to myself that there was no way that I would make and guess what?  That’s right, I made it!  I was so happy, it was as though someone was keeping it “green” for me.  I had to quickly say a prayer and thank God for his many blessings, even the light.  The great news is that I made it fifteen minutes early.  Despite me feeling that there was no way that I could do it, I did.  I even had enough time to go and get a glass of water before I sat down at my desk. 

I guess that is just a reminder to me that there are a lot of things in our lives that we classify as impossible, but the truth is, they really are possible!

Have a great day everyone!
