Happy Middle?

Ahhh...another great sleep, that I wish had been a little bit longer. One of these days, I'm sure it will happen!

Today, was mainly a business day, for me. As I've mentioned previously, my co-worker/realtor friend L, is away on vacation visiting family, so in addition to my own work, I have hers as well. It certainly makes for some busy and stressful moments.

For the last few days, I've been working on an offer on one of L's listings. I praise God the co-operating salesperson, who wrote the offer, has been easy to work with. Not everyone is, but I am feeling blessed working with this realtor.

The seller is in Vancouver, so in addition to the usual complications of setting up meeting times, we have time differences to contend with. For instance, the other evening, I was up until about 2:00 am, waiting for paperwork to arrive. It's a good thing I finally went to bed and decided to deal with it in the morning, because the paperwork didn't arrive until 5:15 am!

In addition, when working with out-of-town clients, we usually fax paperwork. Not so in this case. The seller insisted that the paperwork be done by e-mail. This is a first for me, believe it or not. On the surface, it sounds like a good idea, but in reality, it's turned out to be a pain to contend with! Oh well, hopefully, it will be done, soon.

Just think how happy L will be, when she returns home to find out that she made a sale, without even being here!

Oh, sorry. I forgot. I did say that I won't talk about business, regularly. Since this is a highly irregular situation, I suppose I could say, it's okay, this time! :-))

Well, there's more developments with the C & K story, but I am not yet at liberty to divulge that info. Hopefully, it won't disturb anyone's sleep not knowing what is happening. I promise, I won't make this issue like a continuing saga, or anything. I'll let you know, when I can. Until then, you'll just have to be patient.

I suppose you can tell that I don't have much to say, regarding my own life, today. It's because I lead a basically boring life. In fact, it would be safe to say that I don't have a life.

My life died, as you know. My existence is rather boring. I feel rather like a 'no-name slob, who belongs to nobody and nobody belongs to', to coin a phrase from a heart-felt movie that I just finished watching.

It amazes me how people always seem to have happy endings in movies. Of course, they aren't real lives; their fiction. It seems to me that any happy ending would have to be in a movie, for there certainly hasn't been any for me, in my life. God just doesn't seem to have a happy ending for me, as part of my life. If He would just decide to help me come to terms and accept losing Gordon, I would feel much better. This suffering through grief is horrible to live through.

So, I'll just have to be patient. Wait on Him. For He is in control of everything, including me. I suppose it's really too early to talk about any kind of ending, in my life. Still, it would be nice if God would decide to give me a happy 'middle'!

You can probably tell I am having a 'bad' day, today. Not with work. Just my own life or maybe I should say, existence. Truly, I hope your life is better than mine, for I wouldn't wish my life on my worst enemy.


Until next time...
