I have to say that I had the roughest time at work the other day and although I only work part-time, I stand on my feet all day. That’s enough but on top of that everything I did was a disaster, or so I thought, and I was so wishing the day would fly by and be over.
When I thought about it later, my demo reminded me of the episode of I Love Lucy when she worked in the chocolate factory and she couldn’t keep up as the chocolates came down the conveyor belt. I don’t know if any of you saw that episode, but I’m sure she must have felt the same way I did, as I tried to keep up. I love my job but boiling water, cooking spaghetti, and serving it from a stainless steel cart in a store full of people is very difficult. Of course, next time I’ll be better prepared and more organized I hope. All the people I work with are great so, I’m sure it’s just my lack of experience in this type of environment. Most days working are fantastic and lots of fun.
Anyway, this post really isn’t about work. It’s about how even the most difficult day can end in such beauty. We should always relish in that and take notice that we have eyes to see it. Let me explain. When all the work things were put away for the day and I stepped outside, the entire sky was a gorgeous shade of pink. It was pink in every direction and was so amazing. I breathed in the wonder of that moment wishing I had my camera to capture it. That beauty instantly eased my tension and I was so glad to be there at that place to see that gorgeous sunset.
This also reminds me the days are getting longer and there will be many more sunsets ahead. I’m so happy I’ve survived another winter, although it wasn’t near as bad as the winter two years ago. But I hate any kind of cold weather. It’s been seventy or a bit above lately and I could jump up and down with joy.
How about you? Has the beauty of nature made a terrible day better?
