Last week, I was at my desk tending files, setting appointments, and answering calls, when the text came through from my bestie in Cali. A welcomed break.
I texted him back with our typical blend of affirmations and bantering, ending the text with, “AHHHHHHH!” Which is the word we use to confirm that we we are making fun of each other.
In the midst of all my multi-texting and tasking, I looked at my schedule and tapped my pencil on the desk. Another “ding” alerted from my phone.
I glanced at his message and sighed.
Where was this coming from?
Then a thought occurred to me, and I jumped up and raced over to David’s office. I paused at the door and listened. Silence. Then, I made my bust.
David about jumped out of his chair. “What are you doing?”
I walked toward him. “You have the right to remain silent. Anything you do or say will be used against you.”
Then I picked up his phone and looked at his texts. Nothing.
David looked confused. “I don’t know what you’re looking for, officer, but I’m very busy right now.”
“Have you talked to Eric today?”
“I thought you said that I have the right to remain silent.”
“So you have talked to him!” I accused.
At this point, he was tiring of my antics. “Dawni, what do need?”
“Are you telling Eric to tell me that I do too much?” He looked puzzled. Presenting my phone as evidence, I pointed to our text messages.
He quickly read them and then looked at me. “Nope. Maybe, ‘It’s a word from God,’ as you like to say.”
I let out a high pitched, “Hmmmmph!” then turned on my heels and left.
I headed to my appointments. As I drove, Eric’s words arrested me. All I know is that Yur my too many hats wearin Luv Bug.
As if spoken from the Divine Himself.
Am I doing too much? Am I giving crumbs to those who should get my best?
Sometimes it takes my bestie to remind me, “I capitol L you, but sometimes you do too much.” A little God wink reminder that being is more important than doing.
Now, the question lingers, What am I going to do about that?
How about you? Do you wear too many hats?
And how do you wear the one that is most important?
