Who Took My Magic Mouse?
After a semi-tragic event at work, I learned something about myself yesterday. Details outlined below.
Here’s the deal. After working from home on Wednesday, I got into the office and found my laptop’s mouse to be missing. I was distraught. I was hurt. Who would do this to me? It’s a simple device, yet one that helped me be so much more capable while in the office.
I was lost without my Magic Mouse. Seriously, for a good part of the morning I had to revert back to my “old ways” and use my MacBook’s trackpad to maneuver around. I know, entirely primitive.
While I did end up finding it in one of the conference rooms after lunchtime, I never found out who the culprit was. After some serious situational reflection (okay, not really), I did realize one thing: in my job, it really did help with my productivity.
That one unornamented device played a huge part in my daily routine. It was under-appreciated, but entirely influential.
What other parts of my life often go unnoticed, yet prove to be extremely beneficial?
Every day I rely on the steady presence of incoming power. It has proved to be pretty reliable in my life.
Every day my wife selflessly serves our family. She takes care of the children and makes our house a “home”.
Every day God extends His grace to me. I try to earn it, but then He shows me it is unmerited and undeserved on all counts.
