In my little world, I am just trying my best to allow God to craft me into the person he wants me to be. Not anything glamorous, just being nice when I feel like being nasty. Putting a fake smile on my face if I need to… amazing, no one seems to notice it is as phony as a $3 bill. Carrying a warm sandwich with me when I leave the house to give to any random person standing at the corner with a sign. They all answer the same way. “Thank you, God bless you.” Really. All of them.
These are small little gestures. But small gestures are better than no gestures.
Today I get to have lunch with a bunch of people I like. My boss is taking all of her “managers” out to lunch. With a white elephant gift exchange. It is hard for me to get this “white elephant” idea, but I have found it can be fun. The only thing I could find to give is something that she (the boss) gave me years ago. I don’t think she’ll mind. I hope. A little gingerbread man apron with matching oven mitt. Honestly. I wrapped it up last night. If it were anyone other than her I would not do this, but I really think it will be OK with her. I asked another of the group yesterday what he thought, and he thought it would be fine… he even said it is what white elephant exchanges are all about. OK. I don’t really “get” it.
It’s all OK. All good. Wearing the world like a loose garment.
