Rousing from the dead of sleep, I found my pants and put my shirt on – oh no – backwards!!! Well, that served me right for getting dressed in the dark. But, I love my life, even if it reminds me of a shoestring.
The pressure immense, I hope I don’t snap! I find myself watching out for every corner so I’m not snagged. Under the gun and lowest on the totem pole, I’m constantly being stepped on. Knocking off the dirt when I finally get home, my laces are in a tangled mess. I, too, am much the same! How about you, had enough?
So, the day begins in the pouring rain. My feet are soaked before I reach my truck. I feel like my shoestrings – wet and taut. Even if I was as new as shoes, I still feel like the woven laces. I’m in and out of one hole or another, stressed to the max at every turn! I now understand why cowboy boots don’t have shoestrings.
But isn’t life a little like a shoestring? Your tugged and pulled, even tied up, sometimes double-knotted just to make sure. Bound by limits, we find ourselves trying to hang on for dear life. And at the end of the day it’s time to try to relax and untie the strings. You might even be one that tucks their laces in. Oh, I hate it when I’m that OCD!
Tomorrow will be here soon enough. Once again, my patience and shoestrings will get tied up with traffic jams, slippery streets, and soaked shoes and….well, you get the picture. So, without further ado, I trust that you will get the knots out and enjoy your evening.
Have a very blessed night and remember…. when life makes you feel like a shoestring, be very thankful your KNOT !!!!
