Lesson of a Mama Cow ll

You just have to love the Universe‚Äôs 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.
