Sacred Life Sunday: Extra Time
Today I was grateful for some extra time.
Both LoveHubbie and I have some weird virus or food poisoning and feel super-lousy...we both have the runs, too. We had an evening dinner function we needed to attend and LoveHubbie decided that it wouldn't make a difference if I opted out, although he still had to go, as it is job-related for him. One of the numerous benefits of not having a high pressure very important job (and believe me, I know there are many, many benefits!) is that no one except him really cares if I go to such things or not.
I saved the time getting dressed up and doing my hair (45 minutes), driving to the location and parking (30 minutes), being at the dinner (one hour), and driving home (30 minutes). That's 2 hours and 45 minutes, pure treasure. I'm going to read and phone a much-missed friend.
Unexpected extra time is a lovely sabbath gift.
