Control.

Today I am reminded that there are some (or many) things that I cannot control.

I cannot control other people's reactions.

I cannot control how other people process and disseminate information.

I cannot control airplane schedules...or Tri-Met schedules.

(Clint missed his flight to Nebraska yesterday morning but thankfully he got booked on a later flight.)

I cannot control how others perceive me.

............................

I can control who I am, how I act and how I handle situations.

I can control how I spend and plan my time.

I can control who I surround myself. (Thank you friends and family...you are fabulous!)

I can control my attitude.

..............................

And while I can't control what day of the week it is....

I am so thankful today is Friday.

My sister's coming out this weekend to spend some "down" time.

We have four missions.

1. Sleep in.
2. Make some jewelry. (I'll post pics next week.)
3. Go to Tri-Cities and shop a little.
4. Help Karl pick out a calf for Steer-A-Year.

I'm sure we'll find other things to do, but our focus is mainly on relaxing.

I hope you can each find a way to relax this weekend, and as Lindsay reminded us this morning, I hope you can find something to be thankful for.

I know I am thankful for many things. But I did need her reminder this morning! :)

  1. We can all tell ourselves how much of life is out of our control but sometimes it's still just tough to deal with the amount of control we don't have. I think realizing what we can control is a sign of maturity and Darc evidentally you are joining the rest of us old ones! :)
