You just have to love the Universe’s sense of humor.
Being an older human I like printed copies of my posts. So after I sent my post off into cyber space yesterday I went to make a printed copy. Since I had written about patience the Universe smiled and gave me a little test.
About a third of the page was printed when the printer stopped. The on button was flashing and the printer made a beeping sound. In my limited way with these things I did something, then another something, still no printing.
In the middle of this the four legged being I live with decided she required my full attention with her piercing voice. I tried to ignore her. She was not to be denied. My printer and computer were not talking. Me, no patience in sight.
As I was about to boil over, I looked at myself and I started laughing. The whole event was perfectly orchestrated to give me the opportunity for me to see my lack of patience works against me. I thought about the mama cow and realized patience is possible.
With my improved attitude I put the demanding one on my lap, turned the printer off, unplugged it from the computer and started over. It is amazing what a change of attitude makes, as my printer then gave me three copies of the post.
Give me animals anytime. Thanks mama cow for being a wonderful role model.
