Moving on Monday

Today is Monday, a day to move on!
Last week I called a friend to make final plans for a much anticipated vacation only to learn that it wasn't a good time for a visit. So, instead of flying to Florida on Wednesday, I will be driving to work. Right after that, I learned that someone was moving into my office and I had to be moved out by this Friday. I am being moved into a little wedge of an office which isn't large enough for my [wonderful] desk. If I hadn't lost some weight, I think I would have a real problem turning around in the new space!
So today I am looking at the other side of the story. If I was on vacation this week, someone else would have had to move my office which would have created a burden for them and real confusion for me when I returned to work. I had a nice office for a year and now I will make the best of my new space, grateful as always to have my job.
Last night I watched the movie, Amish Grace, and was reminded of the importance of forgiveness. Holding onto anger is like holding onto a hot coal, it only burns your hand. Today it is time to toss that coal and move on.
