But I find this week that I'm thankful for the occasional hitch in my gitty-up, but I'm going to use that term in a completely different way. What I love about relationships is how they teach you, change you, grow you, and in my case - slow you down.
I am a relentlessly self-motivated freak. On a typical day I'm up early enough to do a house cleaning chore, workout, read my bible, pack a lunch, and get to work on time. I use my lunch break to run errands. I keep a detailed to do list that includes my work load for work, home, and anything else. And currently I have one night per week I'm actually at home. I am an insane, OCD robot. This much you probably already knew.
But I find that the Lord puts the perfect people in my life to slow me down. I am surrounded by people who are far more sane than I am (thank goodness, can you imagine a workplace or a friend circle full of freaks like me?). And I'm so grateful for the laid-back loving way these people slow me down and help me appreciate the day-to-day.
I'm thankful for the amazing people who throw a hitch in my giddy up when I need it the most.
