I have looked for a little silly drawing I saw on the internet of a "progress arrow" that instead of being a straight and upward line, it goes in a circle with many ups and downs before coming out the other side with a slight upward trajectory. It was simple, but made the point well...that that is how progress is often made, and is so typical of how many of my tasks seem to go.
Does anyone else have this problem? A clean and ordered house (well, almost clean and almost ordered) and can’t find what I am looking for! And so I must resort to writing a blog to say that progress is not “linear”. Like everything else, my efforts fall short of my plans.
St. Jude and St. Anthony are my best friends…the saints for the lost and hopeless (well, almost hopeless!).. Meanwhile, I will take breaks from looking and sew on…fleece socks, flower pots, and prep work for items yet to come….Progress is being made. It is just not linear!
P.S. The day after I wrote this I asked St. Jude and St. Anthony to help and sure enough, I found these two lost items in the already marked bin, just as I had remembered. I want to thank them both for not only helping me find these items, but for helping me to locate my mind!!
