Would somebody please tell me who is responsible for this mess?
While I was busy serving clients, empowering staff, and maximizing revenue for my organization (up to 70 hours per week), the following unacceptable conditions have occurred!
- Six different email accounts with a total of 9,000 items in the email Inbox
- Four different file folders, in four different places – all marked “Mortgage”
- Three bottles of ketchup in the fridge; all opened
- Dust bunnies in the hall closet
- Cereal in the pantry that is one year past it’s “Best if Used By” date
- Twelve mailer cards from Purple Heart, saved as a reminder to de-clutter and donate – none of which was done!
- Thirty seven Tupperware containers
- Twenty-nine Tupperware lids
That’s it! I’ve had it! Get out of my way!
Unexpected sunshine with warm breezes arrived this February day in the Mid-Atlantic region. How glorious! Abandoning my inside chores, I took to the garden. While there, a poem emerged. After yard work, supper, and shower I put it to paper.
I went to my Garden to set Her free
of piled up leaves and wind-blown debris.
"I’ll bring forth weeds and thorns, she teased.
“But I’ll give you blooms; I think you’ll be pleased.”
And as I worked, I saw something new.
Yes, up from the dirt a shoot pushed through.
I had to inquire. “Are you weed or a bloom?
Shall I pluck you out or give you more room?”
And the Garden spoke, “Let that little one be.
Leave it there and watch and then you’ll see.”
Since I think that my Garden is wiser than me,
I did as She asked. So...... we shall see.
All the Best, Brigid
