Ruth Ayers Writes-Celebrating This Week
the cleaning bug! The itch for deep cleansing, so deep that every nook and cranny is touched. The bug just took over. I caught it so bad that I purged two bookshelves, and moved one! I windexed finger prints from windows and glass doors. I even took the leap and went for washing globes on the chandeliers. Goodbye old bugs-why do they like light anyway? One chandelier globe gave me a problem...uh-oh! It required a trip to Lowes (wasted two hours) to fix the problem when cleaning was supposed to be a reward.
Finally, after not finding a replacement model and sticking with the old, we fixed it. I drew some parallels in the slice and celebration. When it seemed easier to abandon and go for new, the new just didn't work, didn't make sense. And we achieved our goal by sticking to it and working through the hard stuff...when the going got tough, Kevin and I worked TOGETHER.
Let there be light. Light on the cleaning bug, light on the struggle to make things function and light in celebrating teamwork.
