listen and learn... suprise!
I realized today this incredible gift God has given me. No one really annoys me. You know those people who no one likes to be around. Some of them are well meaning, some just do not want to be happy. I don't mind listening to this type of person, and I have the ability to find the good in that person. I have been interacting a fair amound with someone like this at work in the last couple of weeks. He is not malicious in any way. I love his stories about his flying days. He is just one of those guys you woudn't see yourself interacting with outside of work, and he demands perfection in everything we do, which in a lot of ways is a very good thing in ourline of work. But I feel like he likes me, and he has been a bit easier on me because I listen to him and respect him. Not that I intend to get something out of listening to him, but at the same time I feel like I'm learning more from him because I'm open and don't shut myself off because I don't like him or don't agree with him. And for that I am thankful.
OH! And I just got a phone call from my long-lost-friend Brandon in CO. He is ENGAGED!! I'm so excited. The wedding is in Monument, Colorado in August, and I think I'm totally going to go. I'm so excited to get to see so many old friends!!
