So—the last two weeks have been difficult in the Perfectly household. This week, for whatever reason, I have felt like I’m easily headed over the edge of normal into the depths of CRAZY!!
I woke up today feeling more relaxed and less pessimistic (thank goodness). I got to work to hear the agonized sobbing of a co-worker. My supervisor rushed to her side, I dropped my belongings at my desk and rushed to her……only to find that one of her grandchildren had died in a fire early that morning. A 7 year old boy.
My heart breaks for this woman. The overwhelming grief she was feeling was raw and unmistakable.
So, now I’m here with my hat in my hands, feeling like a shmuck for letting my problems get me so worked up. My problems are NOTHING compared to this. Or many others.
It’s funny how Karma slaps you on the ass once and a while to get your attention, huh?
So, for those of you who pray, say a prayer for my co-worker and her family. For those of you who don’t, give a positive thought this direction.
