First of the Month

Each new month makes me feel a sense of relief. A bit of a change from the last 30-ish days; something new. It also means that I am a busy-bee at work. Trying to get all the reports in, the numbers crunched and the previous month closed. I am feeling a bit of work-related stress today. Not feeling adequate as the accounting mind in this place. Not quite sure what direction I am supposed to go in. I am feeling that stress in my stomach; the constant ache and burn. I seem to ask myself this question often. Is it my purpose to be here?? Right now??

Then I think of all the fun things that this November will bring. A new nephew; the first grandSON in our family. The wedding of a best friend; in sunny Florida, only one week away. Thanksgiving, and the chance to appreciate and give thanks for all that we have. A reunion; an opportunity to reunite with old high school friends. The leaves falling from the trees, the crisp air, the impending snow. November brings a lot to the table.

And when I think about that, my work stress dwindles away.
