And Sometimes We Ignore That Still, Quiet Voice

After two weeks of working non stop I had plans to work even more. There were images to download, photos to edit and blog posts to write. You can be quite sure that I was not taking the time to stop and smell any roses, let alone some lovely peonies.

Then I noticed a small screw had fallen out of my laptop. And I chose to ignore it. Even though my Jiminy Cricket was working overtime I continued working. Feverishly. The next day the entire screen separated. I took it to my favorite repair guy and he said, “Oh if you would have brought it in right away we could have just replaced the screw but now a crucial part has broken off.” This constituted having to order a replacement.

Which of course meant a lot more money for repairs.

Oh if only I had listened to that quiet, still voice.

So sorry this happened to you. Lesson learned. Thank you for sharing a VERY important reminder to slow down a bit. Life is hectic and it takes work to slow to a reasonable pace sometimes. For a sunday morning this was a good read for me. I, too have had CRAZY weeks and have another one I am facing this week.

God bless you.

Just what you don't need, at this time!
I think I would of done the same thing, not realizing how important a tiny screw was.

I have been there many times. A few years ago we ignored something and it turn into some expensive repair, so now we never ignore anything. Lesson learned.

Don't we all ignore that still, small voice at times? I certainly have and yes, I later regretted my doing so. :)
