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.

I prayed.

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.

Thank you.

Proverbs 17:17
Peace to you.

  1. That's a good friend. Glad you got some help with your Monday.

  2. Once again, Dave, you seem to know just what I think about... I feel the same way about what kind of a friend I am to others, when they clearly have been way more graceful than I. I suppose there is always that relationship, though. And, even if you don't realize, you are on the giving end of friendships as well, where those people don't feel worthy of such a graceful friend, and so on. Thankfully, we were never called to be all things to all people, and vice versa. Just be who you know God has for you to be in any relationship (or keep striving for it, more likely, in my own life) and that is all we can do. Grace is a seriously massive thing.
