Today I’m hosting a meeting of people from Loyola Press at my house so I got up extra early so that I’d have time to say hello to God, make myself presentable and still have enough time to clean the living room and dining room to make them presentable for my guests. I was just about to head downstairs to start tidying up when the phone rang. It was an old friend from Ireland, full of the joys of, er, summer, and ready for a long chat. Panic. What to do? I took a deep breath and decided that concentrating on people was much more important than clean surfaces. I had a great talk with my friend and the result is that I’m sitting here writing this as the meeting begins… No big deal. It’s important to stay focused on what really matters.
