It has been a very difficult last 2 weeks. I am about to enter into my 3rd week of this computer meltdown situation and nothing seems to be improving. To recap: my Mac is less than a year old and was diagnosed with “minor software issues”. After 3 different tech guys spent 37 hours of work, my computer “took a turn for the worse” and is now just a black screen with a circle line through it communicating “no”. (I found it kind of comical that my laptop is just saying no) I depend on that little machine for SO much in my everyday life. All of my work files, communication, proofing, templates, and even this blog. Joshua has been very sympathetic to my frustrations and a very good share-er of his computer, but the thing that made my week brighter and helped me stay encouraged were these…
He made me a series of 7 flashcards in a little brown envelope as a reminder of some of the positive ways that he sees me. On the backs of each are definitions of why and an area where he sited examples of specific events.
These have been so uplifting to me in such a down-and-out couple weeks, and a daily resource for cheering up. Also on a positive note, since I have been without a computer I have cleaned out my desk, edited my closet, re-arranged the back room at the store, and re-vamped my file cabinets.
If you have emailed me in the last few weeks and I still have not gotten back to you – thanks for understanding and know that I will asap.
