I usually write a past memory, connect with something current, and voila, I have a post. Today, I thought I would share with you a little bit of my everyday life. My day typically starts anywhere between 7 and 8 A.M. My alarm (which is set across the bedroom) gets to blaring and I grumble my way over to shut it off. After a quick trip to the facilities, I wake up Tobs and get him sorted with another, never-ending, remote day of school. While waking him up, I am grabbing my clothes for the day and brushing my hair. Then I wake up Will, usually by 8:30, sometimes 9:00, depending on our schedules. Then we say good-bye and trundle off to our local Cumby’s for coffee and orange juice before he drops me at my office and he heads off to work.
Once in the office, I take a look at the schedule and the appointments for the day, update our communication board, and have a conversation with whichever tax pros are here with me. Then, while they set about actually filing tax returns, I sit at my desk and handle checking in clients, getting them seated with their respective tax pro. I then get settled at my desk and handle our calls and e-mails that need to be sent out (and of course still handling the day’s appointments). Finally, after about 6-9 hours, we close up the office, Will picks me up and we head home for a late dinner and a quick tidying up of the house before saying our prayers and drifting off to dreamland.
During my breaks, I call my sweet Eli (who stays with his Gram during the week, thank you Covid and remote learning), and check on him and talk with him. If I have any down time, I spend it searching for a suitable place that will house all of us (plus a dog and a cat).
Somehow, in the midst of all the insanity, I still find the time to throw on either KLOVE (my new favorite radio station) or my Pandora playlist (filled with worship music I heard on KLOVE). Reading the Bible is done (not as often as it should, hey, didn’t say I was perfect). I try to stay as focused on the Lord but it is hard in the busy.
My final thought, if we wait for the time to worship, pray, read the Bible, share our faith, it will NEVER get done. We must make the time because if we do, God turns the busy into a blessing.
