I knew that I should have been more prepared, had more slices and drafts. It is coming back to haunt me. Remember I was trying to get fifteen ready when Dave was in Ecuador? I created only 10 ahead. It has turned out that I’ve needed all of them because I interviewed for a new job which chopped up a bunch of days. I got a new job which involved extra hours beyond my days at school. Now I am on vacation and though my husband promised me time to work, he didn’t tell me that he would get sick in the middle of the trip and we’d spend a day at the ER. Not that I blame him for getting sick, but I have a tendency to match get ‘sick’ with worry as well
Some of you might be saying…well Nanc, “Cry me a river.” That is the challenge; working through it all when we don’t have anything more to write, anything more to give.
Well, this is a pretty disjointed narrative, I know. I’ve tried to follow the rules this year, but today it just seems impossible. And I feel sulky at best.
I can turn it around. I can be thankful. Thankful that Dave didn’t need surgery and though it’s a serious infection we can treat it with antibiotics. I am thankful that we can still enjoy a few more days and that we will be able to see our son in St. Louis, one of the biggest reasons we headed this way. I am thankful that my daughter is very healthy and about to have our second grand-daughter and that even though they are far away from us…she works hard to Skype at least a couple of times a week. I am thankful for a new job, even though it starts, right now. I’m thankful that I will be working with people I love and at a church that I have loved for 35 years. God is so good to me.
He even gave me a post…another post, when I didn’t think I had anything left to write.
