I wish I knew how to spell that big **sigh** of relief you let out when things finally get resolved after a long day of stress, stress, and more stress. Since I don't know how to write it in a blog, just believe me that right now I am deeply breathing a great big sigh of relief. I'm not even going into the details, but I guess yesterday when I didn't feel the peace I was hoping for, it must have been because I had a feeling things weren't going to go as smoothly today as we hoped. But to make a long story very short, the business matters Aaron had to handle here in town today took up most of the day, so they got a late start heading to Little Rock. Oh well, I've decided that it's not the end of the world if they miss their show tonight -- the business matters were much more important and are now resolved.
I would like to say a little bit about stress. First of all, I don't like it! I am not stressed very often, so it is not a familiar feeling to me. I'm normally very laid back, calm, and unstressed. But now I can understand how people who work stressful jobs or live stressful lives on a regular basis could be at a greater risk for heart attacks. I could physically feel the stress today. I felt like it was squeezing my heart, and it even affected my appetite. I had some wonderful food for lunch but I couldn't even eat it or enjoy the little bit I did eat. If I was under stress very often, I'm sure I would weigh a lot less! But not even for weight loss would I be willing to live that way all the time. I am ready to go back to my calm, peaceful, stress-free existence.
To all my blogger friends, thank you for your sweet and encouraging comments. I hope you each have a wonderful, peaceful, stress-free weekend!
