Patience, Forgiveness, and The Art of Catching Up

 The past few weeks have been challenging for me on many levels.  Nothing worth talking about; but during this time, as I dealt with the in-person realities of my world, I fell out of touch with various electronic forms of contact.  These include phone calls, text messages, and social media of all kinds.

I'm happy to report that things are much improved here now, and today I find myself poised at my keyboard with my telephone at the ready as I stare at the backlog.


I'm not sure where to start!

As with so many other areas of my life I suppose that the key lies in taking baby steps.  One message, one phone call, and one apology at a time; I'll work through this.  As I dig my way out, I ask for your continued patience and forgiveness for anything that I've missed in your corner of the world, and I promise to extend the same warmth and grace to you when you find yourself in a similar predicament.

Click here for a brief, four minute, podcast by Alyson Stanfield on the topic of Forgiveness.  It's an oldie but a goodie, and it spoke to me today.  I thought that you might benefit from it too.

Is it me or was the world a bit simpler before computers when we had only a land line that provided a busy signal to the caller when we were
otherwise occupied?!?!   :-)
