Another busy week! No matter where I go, it seems everyone has the same thing to say: I’m so busy; life is so busy; we’re too busy. Why are people always so busy? And, get this . . . I was asked to help with a major project recently and I was told, “If you want something done, give it to someone who’s busy!” Did they mean ME?? Ack! I can’t get away from that word! It’s driving me crazy. So I'm considered a busy person. Hmmmmm . . . I do hate it, however, when I ask someone to help me with something and they say, “I’m sorry but I’m too busy.” So I try not to say that. When did the world get like this? I guess I missed it along the way. I have made it a point not to be too busy to help people. Many times I drop what I'm doing to take someone here, or pick something up there, or deliver something that's late, or . . . you get the picture. Or are you too busy? My point is that I'm feeling a little overwhelmed right now because I really am very busy! We have a friend who is running for superior court judge in November. I have committed to be his fundraising manager. In addition to my stake calling in the Young Women's presidency, I've been asked to sub in Primary. This past weekend I was asked to supervise a portion of our city in the task of passing a proposition which will appear on the ballot during the next election. It would have been much to simple to respond with "I'm too busy" but that's not what I'm made of. At least not right now. So, if you need anything, call me. I'm never too busy for those I love!
