Waiting for the Fog to Lift…

This morning…I stepped outside…to find…my world…shrouded in fog…and for a few moments…I could see nothing…other than the eerie mist…

But…quickly…things came into focus…the trees…the fence…the flamingo…and…even though I couldn’t see it…I could hear the bubbling rock…I knew it was there…

Bertha…said…it reminded her of my life…of times…when I feel like I’m in a fog…when I can’t see beyond the tip of my own nose…my own trials…but…that when I don’t struggle…when I just wait patiently for a moment…solutions…begin to take shape…

She reminds me…it can’t be rushed…that I just have to…trust…that like the bubbling rock that I can’t see…it is there…

She promised…the sun will always shine…will always evaporate the fog…in my world…and in my life…

Tea Bags and Weight Loss…

I have a tendency…maybe we all do…okay…not you…you’re perfect…but…maybe the rest of us do…geez…
Anyway…I have a tendency…to want things immediately…to not have to wait…for things to happen in their own good time…we talked about it recently…Time in a Fountain…the same fountain…that has now stopped working…but I digress…
Okay…okay…I’m getting to the point…geez…can’t a girl ramble anymore…you are so impatient…ah ha…gottcha…you do have that tendency…
So…yesterday…I was working on the next…Big Book of Bertha…and I came across a story…that I’d written a few years ago…with that theme…evidently…I’ve needed to work on it for a while
Bertha’s…first example had to do with instant tea…and…how…even though it was…quick…and…easy…I didn’t like it…so…it was worth the time…and effort…to make tea…the semi-old fashioned way…yeah…tea bags…
Her second point was weight loss…reminding me…that like making tea…it was better to take the slow approach…because…if I suddenly lost…fifty pounds…my pants would fall off…no matter where I was…
Of course…I have contemplated that scenario…and…she’s right…my pants would fall off…but…for instant weight loss…I think I’d take my chances…how bad could it be…and I’d be skinny…right…hmmm…
Anyway…it’s a cute story…Bertha’s crocheting high-heeled baby booties…and…yes…I know that you want to read the book…I know…I’ve been working on it forever…but…these things take time…what do you want from me…instant tea…
