Gratitude

I’m revisiting old lessons, like being grateful in everything. There is grace enough for these hard days. And while I am not enough…He is! So today, I’m inhaling my life and striving to exhale gratitude. Peace will certainly follow!

I got an F

I failed at carpool line today. Again. *sigh* So many rules. I remember the good old days when we just dropped the kids off.

Pork

Recently, while at my parents house, my Mother asked the Boy Wonder how many pieces of bacon he’d like for breakfast. The Rocket Man leaned toward me, winked and said, “There’s not enough pork in Miller County for that!” Indeed!

At the late show to see The Great Gatsby by myself. There are 5 of us in the theater. This is strange. Been years since I’ve a) been to a movie alone and b) been to a late movie.

How many engineers does it take to…

Yesterday, my brother-in-law came by to have Rocket Man look at his car. Something about a belt and/or struts. You know…car stuff.

Dan the Man pulled out an iPhone 5 and started complaining about it. It is a work phone and he didn’t want it.

Dan asked Rocket Man how to send a text message. {Rocket Man has an iPhone 4, also courtesy of his work…which happens to be the same company}

I looked up and saw 2 college graduates {from the same, small somewhat prestigious private college}, both mechanical engineers, with a combined 40+ years of engineering experience between them stumped by this extremely easy to use piece of technology.

They asked me how it worked. I smiled, took the phone and sent the text. I then told them that my Liberal Arts education occasionally pays off. They are wont to belittle any education that is not engineering or hard math oriented. I *might* have gleefully spouted off something about being trained to think and reason.

Then, I smiled and said I wished I had a picture of them with their heads bent over the phone. I’d caption it thusly: How many electrical engineer, rocket scientists does it take to send a text message??

They were not amused.

I’m still giggling :)
