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
