My next thought is "What in Sam Hill is that?"...."I just swept last night!" Before I knew it my bible was on the chair and I was getting a broom. "Whew, caught the dust bunnies. Praise the Lord!" I said this out loud as if I am this old church lady....I am not! On with the morning because sweeping was sooooo much more important than anything I would learn from God.....NOT. In the midst, I think of my lifelong friend, Paige as she is reading through the bible and I cannot get through "In the beginning God created..... well, dust bunnies". Then off to work at the office. Whew, thank goodness I am here lest I keep cleaning. Keep in mind I have deadlines to meet and in the middle I look over at my other desk....., again dust bunnies!
I say "God, you are funny!!!!"...and then I cannot help myself and moved as if I was moving through a life or death situation! I stop what should be my focus while I am at work...., straight to the Clorox cleaning stuff and dust items and start cleaning my office as if Snow White in a Disney movie and imaginary music of "Whistle while you work" is playing in the background!
Is it just me or is the smell of lemon fresh Clorox cleaning wipes a beautiful smell as if sunshine has hit my office? Am I the only one besides my life long friend that loves the smell of Clorox?
In this, I think of my Mom and how she is in the middle of Mexico serving people. In that thought I think if I were there would I love those people as much or would I have to take my Clorox wipes in and clean the world down before loving? Knowing me, I would clean first, and say..."Mi lapiz es amarillo" which means, my pencil is yellow, as that is about all the spanish I know, smile..., get calm in that part of my world and then look at these lovely souls with a ".....Anyhoo" look on my face and then try to love these sweet ladies in Mexico as they giggle amongst themselves and say to one another under their breathes in spanish that I might well need meds, smile! My soul needs work, but thankfully I can keep a good sense of humor with myself too! That right there is why my Mom is the one there loving and teaching and guiding as I still have much to learn. I have to giggle at myself as I am back in my calm clean world at my desk where the soft sent of lemon cleaning products have shown their presence in my world. Back to work for this chick!
