No, I didn’t suddenly discover a belief in Jesus on this Easter Sunday, although I do wish a lovely day to all of you out their who believe and celebrate.
But, I have only been up a short time (after forcing myself to go back to sleep) and I have gotten a few lessons on this Sunday morning that I thought I would share.
Lesson #1: On-Line Bank Statements are annoying. Yes, I know they help the environment, but when something comes up that you need to find in past records, paper statements are easier to use. I woke up focused on a mortgage malfunction that I learned about yesterday but cannot deal with until tomorrow. Nothing major, but frustrating all the same, and enough to send me into a tailspin of worrying about the future, and money, and all those things that I wish I could purge out of my brain. I went on-line to find the evidence that they are wrong and I am right, and it took me forever (of course I just figured it out as I was typing this, so maybe the real lesson here is don’t try to deal with financial stress on a Sunday morning after a weird night sleep. :D
Lesson #2: Stats are Meaningless: I have been feeling a little down lately, ever since I dropped Post A Day and gave up the A to Z Challenge. Not because I dropped them, however. It was what I needed to do for my own creativity and sanity. But, I am still lured by the call of the blog stats, and as soon as I dropped them my stats began to drop as well. I felt like all the writing I have been doing was useless, because people would not come unless I linked to one of the Challenges. I felt like I haven’t found my voice or my readers. (I know, this is all in my mind because some of you read me regularly). But then, today, I was given another reward by a lovely blogger, Heather at Little Red Henry. She gave me this:
But the words she used to explain this award for me have taught me the greater lesson.
“To lkramer14, who makes me stop and think and wonder.”
If I can make a few people “stop and think and wonder” then I am doing something good in this world. Thank you, Heather, for a wonderful lesson learned. Go visit her site, Heather tells wonderful stories through words and pictures that bring peace and joy to my day.
Lesson #3: Nobody Really Knows Where the Easter Bunny Came From: But I guess that doesn’t matter as long as he brings me chocolate. But he never really brings me any. Sigh. Does the Easter Bunny have to be a he? For some humorous takes on the Easter Bunny, check out these posts from Arvik and Spirit Lights the Way.
I wonder what other lessons this Sunday might bring.
