“Footprints . . . .”

I carried you

Happy Hump Day, All!

At least, it is Wednesday …. What day is it?! It’s Hump Daaay! That GEICO commercial with the talking camel surely did it for a lot of us!!

Well, yesterday was my mother’s birthday … It is usually a tough day for me due to the fact that I miss having her counsel, warm thoughts and feelings toward me, and just knowing that she is “here”! She was always a special person … not only to me and our family … but to many other people. She was a Girl Scout Troop Leader, she worked with White Plains Child Day Care, she worked with Bethel Baptist Church’s (our family’s home church) Flower Club, she was a wife and mother, and … she still cleaned houses and served dinner parties for an established group of clients in Hartsdale, Scarsdale and White Plains, New York. These were just some of the things Marietta Dolores was involved in during her lifetime. One thing I grew up around, between her and my Dad’s example, was hard work … unselfish work, even.

So, I am going through another rough patch here … Feeling somewhat alone though I know there are many of us struggling with the employment – bills syndrome. I am reaching out, still putting one foot in front of the other, and oftentimes, feeling the sense of being carried by a “higher power”. So, after a day like yesterday, where I did some things from home … and … trying to stay focused on the good things in life, today, I get another notice in the mail about an outstanding ticket!!! Things have been tight, so … the ability to pay tickets has not been tangible!! I’ve got to figure this one out, too, and soon! It is one of those patches when I look for signs, clues, even messages in nearly everything I encounter in a day. I am hoping and praying, meditating … just saying … that things can be resolved in a timely fashion. Our society’s time waits for no one!!!

If you are feeling like you need a helping hand, a kind word or two, maybe just some peace, remember … as I must now … that during the toughest times, it was my Creator (coupled with It’s Angels) that carries me. Peace be with you.
