Pet Peeves Revisited

Some things just bear repeating.  I've touched on this issue before, but...sometimes a week comes along where all you can do is just laugh at the foolishness of it at all.  Whether we're talking free book seekers, magazine editors who seek donated articles only to turn around and try to sell them online, or the classic dysfunctional committee, daily annoyances can get the better of us if we're not careful.

As I said in the earlier post, sometimes some quiet reflection helps to quietly put things in perspective.  In addition to trying to offer up our daily struggles to God, it also helps to see the humor in daily life.  When you feel like your pet peeves are overpowering you, just imagine what your neighbor probably thinks of you--and smile.  When all else fails, pink flamingos on their lawns are always a good alternative...
