“Around to it”. Just three words. How many of us have projects that are waiting for us to get “around to it”. Most of the things that are waiting for us to get around to it have good intentions. Such as, “I’m going to be a better listener”, or “I’m going to treat others as I would like to be treated”.
It seems our good intentions often run into a snag. It may be time, it may be opportunity, or it may just be an unwillingness to take that step to get “around to it”.
The preceding paragraphs are in part an excerpt is from a dissertation I wrote for our church bulletin one Sunday.
I am certainly guilty about not getting around to things. The blog is a prime example. Numerous times I told myself that I needed to post to the blog, but did not get around to it. Then I was surprised to see how much time had passed since the last posting. I apologize for not posting in such a long time. No excuses, just didn’t get “around to it”.
Life on the bayou is running smoothly. My Mom is in a skilled nursing unit, going through physical therapy, and I am making quite a few trips between here and Snyder (130 miles one way). She is doing great and we hope that she will be able to get back to her apartment soon. I’ve set up a medical alert pendant for her, which will make me feel better about her being back in the apartment.
We have had a wet spring here, and it has helped the drought conditions around here. We haven’t had as much of the severe weather as some of the country. We have had some hail, and a tornado touched down about a mile north of us. My neighbor and I watched as the funnel cloud traveled over our houses. We were about 15 feet from a cellar, but did we get in the cellar? No. Why? Because, common sense failed us at the time. Not the most intelligent thing I’ve done, to say the least.
I plan to post more often and not fall into the around to it mode. Things are going very well in life, and I plan to enjoy the beauty of life. God bless.
