In the trend of gratefulness. I’ve been thinking about my friends lately.
I’ve started working overnights for this week and doing so kind of prevents me from much human interaction. I worked 10 pm to 6 am Sunday-Monday morning. Can’t text people because they’re asleep, wondering what people are up to during the normal hours of the day. I feel like a creature of the night and it’s only been one day/night/thing. In any event, It makes me grateful that I normally get to work during the morning.
Also thinking about it from another perspective, working overnights temporarily is a great thing. It gets me to hang out with God more. Since I don’t have friends to go and bug for attention. I’ve got God, which is what I need. So it’s a good opportunity for relationship building with God. Working alone in the back room hefting furniture around lets me trust God every time my clumsy self gets on a ladder, to ask for strength to move something or hold something in place while I get a SKU Number for it (I’m not a very physically strong person if you haven’t guessed). This gives me an opportunity to pray for the people who need it and there seems to be quite a few people who need it lately. To release my worries to God. Which is nice. Because I’m worried for a few people.
Kinda crazy how a different perspective on something you thought to be lonely and kinda crappy can lead to something so much more.
