Week in Review

Posted: May 9, 2008 in TGIF


  • It’s been a while since I’ve sat down on a Friday and have actually felt 100-percent good about the week that was. But despite a couple of frustrating moments and just everyday life stuff, I do.  It started at church on Sunday when, for whatever reason, it seemed as though the message was directly aimed at me and what I was going through. I’ll save you the details, but it was what I need at the time I needed it. Because of that, my week started off on a good note.


  • The Moose had to go to New York for a couple days for work.  Although I miss her when she’s gone, it’s a good thing to, every once in a while, have that time apart where you can just chill out and have some “you” time. I was able to do this and appreciate and reflect on her in her absence. I was proud of her being involved in a prominent conference for our company and shared this with her when she got back. I think it’s important to support each other’s endeavours in relationships.


  •  I consider myself a very caring person. I try to show that in my everyday life in how I treat people. I try to live by the golden rule — Do unto others as you’d have them do unto you. In relationships, I try to follow that same rule. But sometimes I have to be careful and not let my good intentions come across as being untrustworthy, overprotective and/or smothering. But also sometimes, I just can’t help it. On Tuesday, the Moose went to a Yankees game out in the Bronx. She went with a friend and sent me a text letting me know they were leaving and would hit me up in a bit.  I fell asleep and when I woke up, it was about 1:30 and saw I hadn’t heard from her. I grew concerned because it was late and, although she’s familiar with the city, she’s not from there and could easily get lost late a night. As time went on, I kept getting her voicemail and as much as I tried not to worry, I just couldn’t. I wanted to know she was safe, that she was ok. To make a long story short, we eventually were able to connect and it turns out we were both trying to get in touch with each other, but to no avail. One of the many lessons I took from this situation was it made me realize how much she means to me because for an instance, I imagined something bad happened. I couldn’t fathom not having her around. Maybe I overreacted, but I’m just glad she’s ok.


  • Sunday in Mother’s Day. If there’s one person you owe the world to, it’s mom. There isn’t enough space for me to adequately describe what my mother means to me. I can just simply sum it up by saying I love my mother and she means the world to me. So Happy Mother’s Day. Make sure you call, send a card and go to church.
