‘Twas an Epiphany-free Day and All Through the House…
The Universe saw fit to refrain from shaking my world with any new epiphanies today, for which I am infinitely grateful. In truth, I need time to process the one I received yesterday. As epiphanies go, it was pretty world shaking and both giving it my full attention and acting upon what I’ve learned are going to take some time. Not to mention, I’m working on a computer which is far slower than I’m used to and an internet connection which is slightly better than a 56K modem thanks to Time Warner’s questionable decision to make their Wi-fi service less attractive than their ethernet service. But if my fellow writers can work under less-than-optimal conditions from time to time, who am I to complain? I’m just grateful that I’ve worked out a few kinks with my laptop so I no longer have to depend on my iPad to write my blog posts. It was nice to be able to do so when the laptop was being crotchety and my daughter was without internet service (a situation I can now work around if necessary thanks to the addition of a personal hotspot to my cell phone plan), but for a number of reasons, the iPad is less than optimum when I’m utilizing multiple programs for your reading enjoyment.
I’ve even managed to get my drop box account set up on the laptop after multiple failures (that darned 1980 date again!) which gives me access to pretty much all of the files I use frequently. I admit that I’m still baffled by the fact that a piece of equipment which hadn’t even been invented in 1980 found a way to make itself believe that was the current year. Talk about back to the future!
But all’s well that ends well. I enjoyed a day of sun and The Band Perry with my daughter, newly returned son-in-law and some of their friends. Tomorrow, we’ll belatedly celebrate my son-in-law’s January birthday which he missed while he was deployed in the Middle East. I have a feeling this year will see us making up for all of the holidays and special occasions he missed during his 9 1/2 month deployment. There are worse ways to spend a year.
Before I start babbling from a combination of sleep deprivation and a little too much sun, I will leave you with my gratitudes.
1. I am grateful that our sailor is home safe and sound.
2. I am grateful that epiphanies are disbursed frugally as they are extremely rich and filling.
3. I am grateful I can spend time with my daughter and son-in-law. They make the simplest things fun and interesting.
4. I am grateful for a soft place to lay my weary head.
5. I am grateful for abundance: love, family, health, happiness, joy, harmony, peace, prosperity and philanthropy.
