busy bee


Somehow the day managed to get away from me again.

I have no idea where the time went!

I spent a lot of time updating and revising my resume

looking for jobs and trying to really focus on where it is I'm going and what I'm doing.

I had a GREAT devotional this morning, went for a 40 min. walk and communed with nature and tried to make it a point to really LISTEN to what God is trying to tell me.

I'm starting to realize that I have been so BUSY doing what I do each day that I haven't really stopped to listen and hear what the Lord is saying to me.
This past week I have resolved to go s-l-o-w.....and I can't wait to see what happens when I do that!

I've found that it's like this with friends and family too.
Sometimes we are so busy with all that we are doing that we don't take (read make) the time to listen to each other and what we are going through.
We are so BUSY with everyday life and "stuff"that often we miss a lot of the moments.

I'm realizing this as I mourn the loss of a friendship.

I realized I had not been taking the time to really listen to my friend and see things from her perspective. I also was not taking the time to just be there for her.
I was such a "busy bee" that our conversations were stagnant and superficial.

But no more.

I haven't officially lost this friend for good.
We are on "hiatus" until we can figure out how and where we fit in each others lives.
I can only pray and hope that when we reconvene we will be better women, better friends and better listeners.

But right now, this week, I am still busy little bee.
Taking care of my family but enjoying every minute!
