Today has been a special day for me, in more ways than one. I already knew this, but got myself reaffirmed today that our walk through life is poked full of choices and decisions. Neither of which I take lightly nor do I like to have to deal with. I just now had to make a choice.
My mouse was acting up, as wireless ones do when their little battery gets weak. It jerks from here to yonder; reminds me of a bull in a china shop and it gets on my only nerve left, really, really bad!
Since it hasn't been that long since replacing mouse's battery, I still had to figure out if the batteries needed to be replaced or possibly the ball needed washing. Both of those possibilites happening at the same time never entered my mind....until...after I took the lesser of two evils and washed its little ball. Using a Q- tip dipped in alcohol will put a cleaning on a ball. I threw the black tipped Q-tip in the waste can, put my shiney, clean ball back in and you got it! I had to scurry around and find me a battery. Tho' I was never a girl scout, I was prepared! After the cleaning of the ball and replacing mouse's battery, I am gliding right along now.
Choices are most often made for reasons; some because of a necessity and others for the sake of happiness. We all makem. I have made many, some good and some not so good. I hate to have to choose colors-- which color shoe to buy, which color blouse to buy. Although in the final anaylsis, it didn't make a hill of beans difference in the first place. Decisions and choices are very similiar. Now, more than ever I make more choices because there is less damage done if I make an "uh oh". A decision sounds serious to me and I just don't go there. Therefore, as I have mentioned before I cannot like decisions.
I actually made a wise decision early on in my life and that was to register and go vote that year. I did just that .And bless Pat I voted for Richard Nixon and just look what a mess I made. I been jinxed in decison making ever since then. It didn't make me not vote anymore, but it made me more attentive to the fact that I wanted to vote for the person and NOT the party.
For all of us that have chose and decided, we have to continue doing both, again and again. But for the grace of God, when we make bad decisions or choices- that may or may not affect others, -we do have the privilege of a free will and the grace and goodness of God's forgiveness for us. What more could a person want.? May your day be as bright as you choose to make it.
