WFMW



There I was Monday morning, sitting in the chair at the dentist office with the dental hygenist scrape-scrape-scraping my teeth. Ugh! But it had to be done. So I decided to take my mind off my situation and so pass the time by.... (OK, some of you are think this is a no-brainer, but I've mentioned this before - I'm a little slow with these things.) I passed the time by praying!

But not for myself. (Although, Lord have mercy! did come to mind as the hygenist became even more zealous.) Instead of praying that the appointment would magically be over, I prayed for someone else. I was going from there to a meeting with a good friend who is about to be married this Saturday, so I just started to pray for her upcoming nupitals and her subsequent married life. Pretty soon the appointment was over. I had survived it, and by not thinking about how bad it was - I had helped it not be so bad.

Check out Rocks in My Dryer for more great ideas to make life simplier, easier, more enjoyable. I love Works-for-Me Wednesdays - really perks up the week.

Great use of time! I've been doing the same during middle-of-the-night feedings of my 2-month-old.

that is a great tip. I usually just run through my list of things to do after I'm out of this chair, but I like your idea much better.

Great idea! It is always good to pray more, and for someone else is just a bonus.
