The other day, when I volunteered reading menus to older people, a woman was complaining her clock didn’t work. I tried to fix it, but to no avail. The next time I saw her, it was working! It turns out the clock was connected to a light switch, and she had turned that off. She told me, “I just have to push the right button.”
I started laughing, and told her I had just pushed the wrong button myself on my phone and accidentally hung up on somebody. Her next comment was priceless. “I guess that applies to life. Just push the right button.”
Maybe the button I will push today will be the right one, to leave an upbeat message to a friend, to family member, or push to send someone a small surprise gift. I am trying to push more positive message buttons, rather than the critical ones.
I’m sure there is a larger meaning in this, but I tend to think so literally, I sometimes miss analogies. Whatever button I push, I will make it a happy one for Mr. Untipsy, who is now vacuuming for me. Perhaps that is the oven button to bake cookies! (Assuming I know which button to push to turn the oven on! Yes, that has happened before!)
With A Million Layers for Our Walk,
On Day 3032,
PS – Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas to Everyone!
