On Tuesday Molly got a papercut. Oh, how she howled! This little cut was the worst thing ever. She did not want to go to dance class. She did not want to go play with a friend. Her life was just shutting down because of this papercut.
And while I was frustrated with her, it was a good lesson to me. I have had a rough month. A job that has been a good source of revenue for me has ended. We (my sister and I) did such a great job that the company we have been working for brought someone in-house to do our job, full-time, and we have been moved along.
It's been upsetting, trying to figure out what to do without that job and without that income. I just want to shut down. But I have to realize that in the big scheme of things, this is just a little papercut. It hurts right now. I wish it had not happened. But, I cannot let it keep me from the good things that are happening around me.
