All's well that ends well

Friday, July 27, 2012

Got through the emotional upheaval of the week and now all I have is some anxiety about getting the stuff into my car to take to tomorrow's Chinese auction at my handicapped group. Once again, I'm in charge so I have the most worries and the most work. I do have a great group of girls who will help me set up and stage all the donations to move out onto the floor when the room becomes available, so getting out of the house in the morning is really my biggest problem right now, and that's not a problem! Being the leader of a large group has given me a lot of confidence and assertiveness training in directing and managing how things are done. I needed to learn those things for survival! Since I know that God is in charge I don't take all that credit for myself because I couldn't/wouldn't do all this if He wasn't my Fearless Leader, the King of Kings, and Lord of Lords.
So now that I have acknowledged that I don't have a problem, I can go off and crochet and watch TV until I feel hungry enough later on for a cereal, milk and fruit snack. I'm looking forward to watching the Olympics while I crochet what may turn out to be a vest, or maybe an afghan. I'll see how much yarn I have left when I reach a critical point and need to make a decision! For now, it's something to occupy my hands instead of snacking, so that works for me! I will make one trip to my car with a bag of stuff and that will put my mind at ease. Wishing all of you a happy weekend. Hey!! We made it through another week; older, wiser, maybe thinner, but alive, nevertheless, thank the Good Lord!

    You've said several things in this blog and your previous one that I can really relate to... first about co-dependency and letting others learn from their mistakes instead of jumping in to rescue them... a close friend, who has known me well for about 25 years, suggested to me recently that I tend to do that... I wanted to argue with her, but realized she was telling the truth.

    Today's blog, when you talked about crocheting instead of snacking is me to a "T". My church benefits from prayer shawls, sweaters for the bazaar and baby clothes and blankets for the Toronto agency we help support.

    Be strong - don't get hooked into co-dependency again. I'll try to do the same thing.

    Wishing you a very success day including all the extra duties you've taken on as the Organizer of your group's Chinese Auction. I look forward to hearing about it. Wasn't the Opening Ceremony last night beautiful and amazing?
