Hope Rocks

The best thing about this time of year
is that the sun can undo damage in an afternoon.
Snow in the morning? If the sun comes out,
it is gone by the time you're done work.
There are happy pugs sleeping nearby me.
My body is beyond weary this morning but my heart is happy.
I woke in the night and my brain was just waiting to play.
Hard to slow that sucker down in the dark.
I'm scared of the dark, too.
So a nap will be in my forecast this afternoon.

I don't have to go back to work until Monday.
That makes me feel very spoiled.
I have never had a job where I have a desk.
Now I do.
What personal items do you put on your work desk?
About the only thing I know I'm putting there is a clay bowl filled with rocks. I have several rocks with the word "hope" engraved on them.
They will go on the top of the pile.
Everyone needs a touch of hope in their day.

Everyone needs a touch of hope in their day - and that is why I come here once a day!

A touch of hope...hmmmmm. But you ARE right, Hope. Even when the going gets GOOD...we still need that reassurance that God is with us, that He is in charge, that He is the source of all power.

Thanks for helping me/us stay hopeful!

Congrats on your new job. I like what you said in an earlier post about being grateful to have learned how to ask for help. And in your profile about being "done letting other people define who I am." Both of these are very close to my heart right now as well. It's a good place to be, yes?

What do you put on YOUR desk? Anything YOU want.
I going to find me some rocks that say hope on them!

What a great post, I love your blog! You are hope incarnate. I like the rocks with hope on them...pictures of your pugs and family? Many hugs to you!

I started work on Wednesday too, with my own desk. Today I bought two frames, and printed off two pictures. One I took of tulips and one of my son.

Just start with a few little things (I like the rocks idea) and it will slowly grow and become your own!

I actually just cleaned off my desk at work. What do I put on it? Apparently everything.....
