Reminders

Thank goodness for Omega.  Honestly I don't know what I do without that man in my life.  I need his perspective at times so badly.  Yesterday I got a little upset, my 5 year old front-load washer wouldn't unlock and it's not the first time this has happened.  The last time it ended up costing me a couple hundred bucks to have a couple screws turned or whatever.  


Now Omega hasn't fixed it (tho he did say he'd like to try and will later this week or weekend).  When I texted him about the problem, he asked if I could get the door open, and I said yes, there's a thing you pull to over-ride it.  But I wasn't letting go of it. I was annoyed.  I just spent money on a new vacuum (that we obviously needed), and now I'm getting slammed again.  O reminded me not to look at that way.  He reminded me that I should be grateful that I know the problem isn't really serious, and relatively inexpensive to repair.  Also, he reminded me that it's cheaper than buying a new washer and dryer set.  But then he added, if we had to buy set, we have the money to do that and for that alone we should be grateful.  I wasn't interested in his logic tho at the time, I was more interested in having a pity party for myself.  Doing the woe is me thing.  


After I read his message, I thought about it and damn it he was right.  Totally right.  While it's not a positive thing, it's certainly not worth wasting a lot of energy on.  Omega will look at it over the weekend, when he has the time.  If he can fix it, great.  If not, I'll call the repairman and have them come out to fix it.   I'll also make sure O is here so he can see exactly what to do so when it happens again he can fix it.  But back to the point.  I forget to count my blessings and O brings me back.  


It's really good.  


Because I am grateful and I know it's not thankful Thursday...but I'm still thankful for everything...even on a Wednesday.

  1. O is right as it's only a minor inconvenience. However, in the moment it can seem like a nigtmare. Great job by him for being able to thik clearly, see the big picture and relay that on to you. You do have a lot to be thankful for...especially O! :)

  6. What the others said, and also, good for you that you're open to letting Omega show you another way of looking at it. Being submissive to him, I suppose that isn't surprising, but many people seem to get even more irritated when you try to calm them down by pointing out the good aspects and that the situation really isn't so very bad. It is a wounderous thing when one can stop wasting one's energy on such things and using it where it can really make some difference. The Serenity Prayer comes to mind.
