We have to make choices. They are everywhere.
What to wear for the day. What to eat. Where to go.
Then there are the important choices that can change our lives.
Where we go to school. Where we move to.
Who we have in our life.
These choices are what make us who we are.
If we look back and regret them do we regret who we are? What we have become?
I like to think that I can just regret the choice.
I find myself thinking about what could have been.
I can’t change these choices. They have been made.
I have to let them go.
The clock ticks the seconds away.
The fan runs in the corner.
The cool dark embraces me.
Thoughts and prayers flit through my mind.
The search for pleasant things to dream about begins.
An exotic location.
Or a warm blanket with a book.
From birth to grade school so much changes. So much is learned.
You grow and get older. The learning process continues.
As school progresses you take on more. Trying to understand yourself.
Graduating from school. You are put out to take care of yourself.
Find your calling. Train for it.
Marriage. Children. More change.
We resist change, but there is always something coming to change us.
Even as we grow old. Relationships change.
Life is change. We change until the end.
The end changes us one last time.
Early morning wake ups.
Hugs, kisses, and cuddles.
Imagination and playing pretend.
Reading stories and learning about everything.
Cooking and building.
Running and dancing.
Smiles and giggles.
Thoughts spin and sputter.
Oh to just concentrate in the end.
To create a world to call my own.
To be boss, to be in control.
Make sure to understand I’ll have to rewrite at least once.
Make sure to realize that it’s all apart of the process..
Last night I went to Easter vigil. It was my 10th anniversary of me joining the Catholic Church. I was kind of surprised when the other day one of my friends reminded me of that fact. It had completely slipped my mind. That’s why I went to the vigil.
It was wonderful. I always love the long services. We got to listen to so many readings and psalms. 4 people were baptized at our church and about 30 people over all joined the Church last night. It is always wonderful to be in the same room with so many people that are full of the Holy Spirit. It is the Holy Spirit that guides us home. He lights a fire in you until you can come to him in the Eucharist.
I am glad that I joined 10 years ago. I’m glad that I have Jesus as my God and Savior. I hope that one day I will meet him.
The title really says it all. Especially if you are in the process of writing a lengthy novel. Or you have several different copies of your resume that you are working on. Or…
You get my drift. You never know when your computer is going to pick up a nasty virus/malware and there is nothing that you can do to fix it except reset your computer back to factory settings. (It’s not fun at all and I don’t know why I don’t just do this from the beginning instead of wasting my time trying other things that never seem to work anyways.)
In the past week or so my computer decided that everything that I wanted to download was a virus and wouldn’t ever keep the file. No matter the fix I tried, no matter the internet browser that I used, I could not download a single thing. Which was slightly amusing when you think about it. Because it let me continue to use my computer to look up ways to try and get rid of the problem. Connectivity was not an issue.
Sorry I’m letting my nerdiness show.
But YES make a back up of your stuff tonight before you go to bed. Just let it run while you sleep. Just make sure you do it. Because your iTunes library could be lost, or your Pictures, or other important documents. Trust me. You’ll be happy that you did.
