I don’t like to tell people, “No.” I don’t want anyone to get the idea that I don’t like them or don’t want to spend time with them, so when I‘ve been invited to two activities at the same time, I feel conflicted. I feel frustrated and put-out because there are so many options for things to do. How crazy is that? I should be thankful for the many friendships I have and the opportunity to live life with these people. Not overwhelmed because I can’t do everything. So, thank you God, for the friendships I have with lots of different people with different interests and busy lives.
Lately, I’ve been overwhelmed. I have an interesting job and a boss who pushes me to use my gifts and continue learning instead of sitting on the sidelines. My husband owns a successful business and requires my support. I have great kids who have active lives and need my attention. Put all those great things together and a household to run and I find very little time to just “be.” So I give thanks for a healthy, busy, and fulfilling life. But seriously, God, a few more hours in the day would be great.
