Where’s Waters?

July 4, 2010


I’m over here.  Working.  Working.  Working.  And it’s okay.

My husband pointed out to me yesterday that I haven’t posted in two weeks.  It’s been a blur.  I made a tough staffing decision at work on the 20th of June.  As I’ve been saying to people, “I’m tending the garden I planted.”

Reaping what you sow, tending your garden.  I looked at my decision, I thought about what it meant and I did what I had to do.  I planted the seeds of overtime (lots of it, I’m not kidding you) and now I am growing that decision.

I’m also looking at how I am just a thread in the tapestry of all this, all of the everything.  Some people had to move on from employment at the establishment I run – that was a hard thing to do.
However, looking at the path that has spread before them, the changes in a (perhaps unhealthy) relationship, a positive turn to better working hours for one particular individual and several other things – I can’t help but think, “Huh.  Well, that’s clearly not me at work.  That’s something else.”

When obvious, (albeit) hard choices present themselves – do the hard thing.  Be brave.  Look at the long road ahead.  It might not seem great today – but probably you’re just a small part of some Master Weaving – our universal connectedness.

The picture at the top of the post is my garden.  Clockwise from 12 o’clock is my hippo planter with Lime Basil (yum yum yum), Red Deer Tongue Lettuce, my shoe that got in the picture, and at 9 o’clock is the big bucket o’ Butter Crunch Lettuce.

Tend the garden.
