This is the third blog this week (check out May 17 and 18 if you haven’t already) of my “mantras” that I use to get over hurt, stress, and just all those things that life seems to throw at you.
Just last night, when I picked up my mom to run an errand, she was adamant that a previous passenger who had ridden in my car had leaned out and spit out of the window and that it landed on the door of my car. Of course when I explained that she is practically the only person who rides with me, thus she must be the culprit; well, let’s just say that it didn’t go over too well with her.
Aside: Of course I knew that mom had not spit out the window. She is a lady. I thought it was funny – a joke! Mea Culpa! I was just at a loss when confronted with the idea that anyone spit at my car – Joanna, perhaps? Hmmmm…
The tone continued when we got into the store (Paper Affair on Lovers Lane – one of our favorite places to shop). Mom did NOT like one of the note card sets that I picked out as a gift and throughout the shopping experience called it “the ugly one”, continuing our silly fuss.
Aside: Just ask my friends who play bridge with mom and me to tell you about our “exchanges” during the heat of the game – mom and I are both headstrong and both like to win – it’s hilarious.
Enough of this! Mantra number 3 is:
All is well.
Say this to yourself each morning and it really does give you a sense of peace. Some days you’ll need it more than others.
Tune in tomorrow for number four!
