Ha! The hits just keep on comin'! I'm not a complainer. I always look at the bright side of things--which drives some people nuts. They want a good wallow whine--not to turn it around and find the silver lining. But it's just in my make-up. . . .
Anyway, this recent string of crises and minor disasters, for me has gotten in the farcical realm.
Just as I had been resisting Facebook and social media, but finally had to delve in when I started my bands, I've also been resisting getting a smart phone. I liked my little flip phone and for the paint work I do, it was handy and appropriate for the job.
But, I wore out the little phone and finally relented and got Isaac's hand-me-down, a nice little Samsung Galaxy S Note smart phone. It was fairly easy to learn and was perfect so now I can check my emails and notices while working--helping with the band stuff.
And somehow, on Friday. It's gone. I can only imagine that someone reached in my car window and nabbed it while I was in 7-11 for just a couple minutes. Oy. I had a ton of contacts on it, impossible to replicate...hadn't backed them up of course, still being a newbie.....
Then it's the worry that it's connected to all my email accounts and who knows what other personal information is on there. Cue a panicked day of changing passwords, monitoring accounts, reporting to police (because we thought we saw it immediately on sale online). . . . A day wasted and scrambling when I was suppose to be figuring out how to fix the dumb backflow pipes to the sprinkler system which froze and split over the winter. . . .
Yay! Lol. They say your not receiving flak unless you're over the target. . . . BUT, not complaining. Always . . . I think and recall . . . there is so much to be grateful for. Above all, to have been given the eyes to see Truth, to know and have relationship with The Creator. THAT is the treasure. THAT is the main purpose, the only real goal worth striving over. This life is often silly, frustrating, difficult and quickly over. God God Lord God is what it's all about. HIS glory. So much to be thankful for!
[Now, that wasn't the "word" I got although it is related and I should be able to get to that share here shortly, take care, God bless:]
