It’s been a rough ride around here lately. In addition to a host of other things, my beloved husband threw his back out very badly; he has been laid up for 2.5 weeks and on bedrest for 12 days. I’m not looking to throw myself a pity party, but yesterday all of the frustrations of everything stacked up and eventually I had a miniature meltdown and vented my frustration on twitter. I posted this:
Dear Universe, Could you lay the heck off me for a couple of weeks? I’m not sure how much more frustration and stress I can take. xoxo Bon
Then I gathered myself together, took some time, scooped the cats’ litter boxes and went to bed. When I woke up this morning and checked in on my stream, I had received the following @reply from the user: The_UN1VERSE:
I’ll See What I Can Do. But You’re Doing Fine So Far.
This may sound dumb, but it was really actually helpful. Just that little piece of random encouragement set me up for a great and productive day. I have no idea if it’s a real person or a bot behind the account. If it’s a real person, they dealt me a huge measure of kindness with this one silly post, and for that I thank them. I’ll try to pay that kindness forward.
