Thursday, Fourth Week in Ordinary Time

Dear T,

I sat all day in a long committee meeting which I don’t enjoy. I seem to have a low boredom threshold. But boredom, like perceived obstacles, is only an attitude of mind.

Peale tells of his golf ball being struck in the rough. A friend asked him to bend down and feel the grass around the ball, even taste it. The individual blades of grass were quite smooth so getting the ball out of the “rough” was only an attitude of mind.

Remember, he says, the rough is only mental.
