My husband Ray is either Superman coming to my rescue, or else he simply wanted to avoid me having a major meltdown because of my laptop needing replacing.
Until I can buy a new laptop, I am using a combination of my smart phone, our daughter Leah‘s computer, and our old DINOSAUR computer to do my work.
Last night Ray created a temporary solution so I don’t take Leah’s computer hostage for the next couple of weeks: he got the dinosaur computer running again and attached a keyboard.
I’m thankful but this is a great test of patience, since the dinosaur computer and its keyboard are very S-L-O-O-O-O-W. It makes me want to SCREAM! How am I ever going to get through the next couple of weeks until I can buy a new one?!!
But as Ray reminded me last night in bed, a true business person uses the resources available to him or her (and a mature one doesn’t whine or rant).
And Thanksgiving reminds me: BE THANKFUL FOR EVERYTHING YOU HAVE…even the dinosaur computer! Especially for God, family, friends, health, and all the blessings God has given me!
I’m going to ATTEMPT to continue with my blog series on my Canada trip. If this proves to be too patience-testing because of the dinosaur computer’s slowness, then I’ll pick it back up again after I buy the new laptop (which will be my early Christmas gift from Ray, by the way!).
What about you? Have you experienced laptop or computer problems? What did you do until it was fixed or you bought a new one?
SO THANKFUL FOR YOU!
Meanwhile, I want to tell you how thankful I am for you. I couldn’t do what I do without God, my family, and you, and my heart just overflows with gratitude for your love, support, and encouragement. My prayer is that you will have a wonderful, blessed Thanksgiving Day with your family and friends.
What are some special ways you are celebrating the day?
