Deadlines! Deadlines!

Deadlines! Deadlines!

All of us have been pressured with deadlines. For me it was, “putting the show in the can” each month. After I started recording my radio show on GARSS in January, I learned this was the term used for finishing a monthly segment. “Eye to Eye—Fiona’s Perspective, What’s Yours?” was fun to host and see what it was like to produce a show. If you haven’t listened to any of the episodes, they are all on my website. Just a click away!

Then I had those deadlines for getting Bettina the Bold and My Nightlife Is 24/7 published.
I have spent the entire year learning and making new friends along the way.
I have always heard friends are the present God gives us. This is a season of reflecting and appreciating those we love. As we scurry and hurry and impose stressful deadlines on ourselves about  giving gifts to those we care for, we don’t stop to think that the most precious thing we can give is ourselves—our time.
Bettina, bold though she was, discovered she needed friends. If Helen, the bat, had not been willing to help Bettina, she might not have learned to “see” the value of friends. I hope you “see” how you attract friends and show them how you appreciate them.
