A trusted friend gave me a sketch of thoughts on note cards. The thoughts were intriguing and insightful. Initially, the musings written had me contemplating her life and situation. She was evaluating and assessing herself and sharing.
The note cards were decorated with fanciful drawings. A potted flower, pen, glasses, vintage corded phone… The background was petal pink and there were lines to write your words upon.
As I sifted through the cards that were each labeled “My to do List” I began to deliberate the short thoughts as it applied to my life. This list was haunting.
I will share a few of her contemplations:
*Don’t try to be Florence Nightingale and try to help some one with their “sliver.” ZIP IT.
*Read YOUR Bible Focus on God, Not Others.
*Don’t Get Too Comfortable.
*Ask YOURSELF are you helping or are you Hurting?
*Don’t’ offer Your “Seasoned Advice Tips” Books or Whatever if no one asks you.
*Know your Limits.
*Don’t go to lunch with friends if you know it’s not your “cute day.”
*Forgive Yourself. Stop trying too Hard.
I have a lot TO DO, it is not my cute day. Thanks DEAR FRIEND.
