|Slow down and smell them...|
I am overwhelmed.
It is a common affliction for writers. For women. For retired people. For people who like to volunteer. For people who have jobs. For people who can't--and don't want to--say No.
It is a problem.
I asked our pastor Sunday what to do when I felt overwhelmed. I know he is sometimes, too--or I think he is--so it was, you know, kind of an entrapment question. I was sure he'd say, "Pray." Duh.
And he did. Sort of. But better than that, he suggested something to pray for. He suggested I pray for things to slow down. For life to slow down. For me to slow down.
I think it's working.
See you next time, when I might have more to say. Until then, slow down.
