So I Became The Bigger Person....

Rodney:  Sometimes you have to be the bigger person.
Me:  I know that, but why do I always have to be the bigger person.
Rodney:  Just be the bigger person....

That's one of the normal conversations Rodney and I use to have.  I really miss them, I really miss him.  There isn't a day that goes by that I don't miss him and I'm so very glad that God allowed him to be part of my life, if even for a little while.

But that conversation at the top, hit me hard this week.  As my last post indicated, I was outraged at my one co-worker.  I was all ready for her Monday morning...but Rodney's words kept whispering in my ear "sometimes you have to be the bigger person".  So well, that's what I did.  I took the high road and let it go.  The important thing is that there are needy people that we're helping and that's all that matters.

Now mind you, I did get a few digs in.  At least twice she mentioned that she was sure we'd meet goal - I reminded her that my goal had already been reached.  She'd smile and walk away...I think it got the point across.  ;)
