During this time of the year, I need steadiness. Where does it come from?
A cup of herbal tea, in the evening, provides some steadiness.
Yesterday, we had the character and commitment to take down the little Christmas tree, which has been looking rather unsteady.
We also had the character and commitment to go to the supermarket, where I had the steadiness to take these pictures:
Then, while the cats demonstrated steadiness …
…. Aaron and Michael had the character and commitment to make latkes,
… and I had the steadiness to eat lots of latkes with applesauce AND sour cream.
Today, I have the steadiness, character, and commitment to provide individual and group therapy at work.
But first, let’s go with a ready and steady music video.
As I was watching that video of Ready, Steady, Go by Paul Oakenfold, I was remembering a question my steady son, Aaron, asked me yesterday:
When you had your open heart surgery, did you ask them take a picture of your heart?
Before Aaron left for college in September, I had expressed the commitment to ask the doctors at the Mayo Clinic to take a photo of my very unusual heart when it was ready for its close-up on September 21. I decided not to, because I wanted them to focus on the steadiness of the delicate procedure.
I guess I don’t need to see my heart; I’m just enjoying the steadiness of every beat.
Do you have the steadiness, character, and commitment for one more photo, today?
