Summer is usually the time of fullness, of rest, of long lazy days and hours open to reading, crafts and projects. Time to get things done on my own schedule.

But now I'm waiting. Waiting on other people's issues - not able to blog, or speak, or reveal these issues. But now I wait. It's a stop and start process - a little today, then another date, then another. (And no, this isn't in any way, shape or form a work issue). (And it's not a health issue either).

And in the middle, in the interior mental space, such a desire to take action, to do something, to tell someone off, to clarify boundaries, to correct the situation. However, my inability to correct means something - that this is a situation that needs prayer, that need love.

I've prayed a lot - and nothing much changes. Prayer doesn't change the situation or the other person. Prayer only changes me. Right now, allows me to wait.

things that drive me . . .

fill in the blank
I can't rest when . . .

I've lost my planner.
I have an overdue library book.

It's the second. I have an overdue library book and I can't for the life of me figure out where it has gone.

Boy, am I a goody-two-shoes!

it was there a month ago. and then it wasn't. I renewed it figuring it would show up. But it has not. There are only so many places that a book can hide. But there must be more places.

Just a tad obsessive, no?
