I Don't Like Mondays Either
So. You ever have one of THOSE days?
Yesterday was a Monday. It was horrible. I was tired all day, feeling down and restless. My mind was wandering all over the place. Erratic.
I tried to work on some music, to distract me from myself, but everything went wrong. Everything. Something happened that messed up all the files, literally ruined the mixes of all the songs I’ve been working on for over a year. It was madness. I was starting to panic and I had no idea what to do.
So I did what I do when I don’t know what to do.
Then I called my friend Tom.
Tom fixed my songs. Tom was patient with me. Tom was kind. It took a lot of time that I know he doesn’t really have. It was sacrificial. An act of grace.
He’s just that kind of guy.
I don’t know what I’d do without friends like Tom. I have some others like him too, who give and give to get me through. I don’t deserve them. I know it. I feel bad because there’s no way I’m as good a friend to any of them. I just do what I can and hope it’s enough. And remain thankful for my friends, who get me through.
Good friends do that, I guess. They get you through Mondays.
Let me just say: Thank you. You know who you are. All of you who help me get through Mondays, whatever day of the week they happen to happen.
Peace to you.
