Joys of Working Late

I have a hard time getting everything done during the day at the office because I’m constantly being interrupted. Of course – that’s a main part of my job, and I want to always be available for my team. But today, I kept on working and before I knew it, I looked up and almost everyone was long gone home! It’s amazing how much you can get done when you’re “at work alone!”

As I walked to my car, I started just fussing at myself, thinking about how tired I am and “What am I going to fix for supper?” and it’s going to be dark soon, and. . . When I got on the road, I got to noticing how the traffic was so much better today. I guess there are a whole lot more folks who get off at 5:00 pm than 5:40 pm. I was never in a LONG line of cars the whole way home. I could actually keep it on cruise! Then, I saw deer in a field. They were so beautiful! If I had left on time, I probably would have missed them because it was too early for them to be out. God sure made a beautiful world!

Now, I’ll be honest – I thought, “Well, the sun is certainly lower and it’s shining right in my eyes!” That’s one thing that’s worse about working late. . .but, guess what? I didn’t get sleepy driving home – not with the sun in my eyes. I made it home safe and sound.

So, the next time, things don’t go “perfectly,” turn your “Ughs,” into “Wows,” and count your blessings. God Bless, Courtney

  1. One thing about it, Courtney….no matter how bad we think we have it at times, someone always has it much worse. We should always thank God for what’s good in stead of griping about what’s wrong. It’s a matter of perspective. It sounds over-simplified, but in the final analysis “how bad we have it” is a matter of perspective. Remember the man who would complain about how bad his feet hurt until he saw a man with no legs? There’s a lot of truth to that old story.

  2. Good advise!!

  3. `wow!
