Hacked Off…

My daughter called yesterday…not really unusual…she does call frequently…but…she was out of town…so…I knew something was up…and…up it was…Mama…you just sent me a friend request on Facebook

Hacked

Now…I was knee deep in writing…for a change…but…I sauntered on over to Facebook…where life was anything but normal…I had messages…I had posts on my timeline…people were sending me instant messages as I was trying to find out what was going on and report the phony page…

Seems as though I was part of a…scam…where someone assumes your identity…copies some of your pictures…making the page look real…and sends requests to all your friends…then…sends them messages…so excited that they have won money in a lottery…and…only have to pay…$$$…in order to collect it…

Luckily…none of my friends…sent money…but…several of them did accept the friend request…thinking that I had somehow…accidently…unfriended them…and…was simply making things right…at first glance…the profile looked right…it had my cover picture…it had my profile picture…and…they accepted me…once again…

It’s easy to do…I’ve done it myself…

Anyway…afterwards…I was…frustrated…angry…the whole thing had taken a lot of time that I really wanted to spend working on my work in progress…

Bertha…popped in…reminding me…of my challenge of late…to…love…regardless of the circumstances…she reminded me…to send the love blessing to the hacker…

I wish you peace…I wish you love…I wish you happiness…I wish you good success…

Because…she reminded me…one more time…that…if this person…felt…peace…love…happiness…and…success…in their life…they wouldn’t be…spending time…hacking Facebook accounts…

Hmmm…

Tuesday…Tuesday…

Yesterday…was that first day back to work…after having Saturday and Sunday at home…AKA…Monday…and…it was…Monday…all day long…I started out…with…a modest to-do list…and…high hopes of getting it completed…

But…alas…the day just didn’t go that way…and…truly…the only progress I made towards my tasks…was about fifteen minutes before leaving work…

Now…granted…this wasn’t something that had to be completed…yesterday…and…I had made a bit of progress…so…I wasn’t doing the self-flagellating thing that I tend to do…no…it was more like a mild…frustration

Anyway…when…sharing my accomplishments…and…lack thereof…with my friend at the end of the day…he took it all in…then…replied…with a grin…

And…that’s why…God made…Tuesdays…

Hmmm…he’s beginning to sound…an awful lot like…Bertha…I wonder if I can handle both of them…
