I Did it For Nothing

Tonight I thought and I wrote, I thought and I wrote, as I wrote the blog for tonight. It was slow going, my brain wasn’t cooperating and I couldn’t seem to get into the mood. After about two hours I was finally close to being done and I was thinking that it was going to be pretty good. I was thinking about how to bring it to a close and while thinking I fell asleep. I only slept for about 5 minutes, but during that five minutes my hand fell on the screen of my Ipad and it erased everything I had just written. Usually, my Ipad saves everything I write, but somehow during this eraser event, I convinced my Ipad not to keep anything. I tried to rewrite it from memory, but it seemed like it had gotten erased from my memory like my Ipad. I finally gave up, and now you are stuck reading this account of why you are stuck with such a pathetic effort at writing.

Have you ever had an event or something that you did, and at the conclusion, the best description you can come up with is, “now that was a complete waste of time!” I call them “Efforts in futility!” Because I have already spent two hours working on this blog, I am not inclined to spend too much more time on it so, sorry this is what you get.

I have a goal of consistently increasing the number of people who subscribe to my blog, and that will happen if the quality is good enough that those who are subscribed read the blog through to the end each day and that many pass it on to others who choose to subscribe to my blog after reading it.

I don’t think I will get very many people who “share” this blog with others. Oh well, tomorrow will be better, I hope so anyway.

    Wow! I’ve never done anything like what you experienced! NOT!
    I guess you’re human, after all. I lost count a long time ago of similar incidents. Just part of the maturing process.

    And you shared it, haha!

    I’ve been talking to you in my mind–on his last night here, Trudi brought Dr. Nick to our house for a housecall! What a nice, nice man. So impressed with his bedside manner AND with his spiritual life. He will be such an asset to IUI and they to Meridian. They need prayer for the right home, church, schools, neighborhood…they arrive in August, Es told him she will be his first patient when he opens up his office in early September. We were so very blessed by our time with him as he kindly offered remarks from his knowledge as a urologist.

    Love, Sharon

    PS I think I should recommend NorthStar to him for his kids?? Oh, and he took our signed book copy like it was a treasure…
