Wind


video
This is a silly video of me complaining about the wind. I didn't get much sleep last night due to howling wind all night. I am not at my best when I am suffering from lack of sleep. Fortunately, today is Saturday, and although I would have preferred the day to be productive, I can take a long nap... all afternoon... after the 6:30 meeting and my six mile run this morning.

Last night I spent over an hour on the phone with the man who is having such a hard time. I am glad I can be his friend, but it does take a toll to listen to problems that intense for such a long time. I am sure grateful it is not me.

And I surely remember the times when people would not listen to me because I was too draining. I remember a friend who told me she just couldn't be around me or "people like me." I remember what that felt like and I will not do that to another human being. We are all God's kids - we ought to treat each other as such.

There used to be cute little posters and plaques (sp? afraid I am using a medical term, not an artistic one) with "cute" pictures of kids with huge eyes, saying something like "We need love the most when we deserve it the least."

I am going to try to be a loving child of God today.

Is that film by Steven Spielberg?
Apparently it's not playing down here.
Thanks for the reminder about being an ear. Hayden was my ear when I needed it the most. In fact, he still is.

Oh, the wayward wind is a restless wind
A restless wind that yearns to wander
And I was born the next of kin
The next of kin to the wayward wind

I love me some patsy Cline!

Enjoy your nap today, they are luxury items.

The wind howling should be lulling you to sleep, not keeping you up!
