It's a beautiful fall day here in Franklin, TN and I'm outside writing on our back patio. I snapped a quick pic to share, and um...you'll get a glimpse of my every day "work wardrobe." LOL! None too glamorous but hey, it's comfy.
Jack is always close by me, and this morning was no exception. He's been driving me nuts with his Kong. He comes and drops it--over and over and over--by my feet.
So this pic (below) was my view earlier before we finally headed outside (where he goes exploring in the yard and forgets I even exist, so I can write in peace).
I've still got a lot of writing to do today, so I'll just leave you with a quick thought. It's something my son and I were texting about last night (love you, Kurt!), and that reminded me, again, to be a woman of my word. Something, sadly, I've not always been.
I reminded him to listen to what a person does, not what they say, to hear (and see) who they truly are. Actions really do speak louder than words in regard to character.
Do I ever make a promise with intentions of breaking it? No. But when I don't keep a promise, in the end--regardless of the circumstances that brought me to that point--I have not kept my word. So, I make promises less often these days and am far more selective when I do. I want to be a woman of my word. I want my walk to match my talk.
Wherever you are, I hope you, too, are enjoying a beautiful fall day!
