(I had drafted this post yesterday morning and had erased and rewritten the post after midnight earlier but the time stamp and order here got messed up… So I’m reposting.)
There are days when a simple question, heartfelt and not conversational — a genuine inquiry into how you are doing — can make a whole difference as you end what has been a challenging day. BFF Do wrote that simple query in a short e-mail from work. She is 16 hours ahead of me. We can hardly “catch” each other on regular weekends.
Mental telepathy, I told her. But I was too tired to answer the question. She understood. It’s like a question that seeks to reassure. I am truly blessed.
I really should be sleeping. I have an early start tomorrow as the boy has a unit test. We did our review tonight, but it doesn’t hurt to do more practice. Plus, we will walk to school together. I’m on solo duty again. I cooked chicken for my mother-in-law, cooled it down and put it in individual containers and stashed them in my fridge. I even managed to bake a polymer clay experiment which needs a whole lot of work but which was productive because I know now where I need to do a work around.
And tomorrow is another day.
I hope I find the strength not to butt heads with those who are not worth the trouble at work. It is, after all, just work. I hope tomorrow will be sunnier. I am not optimistic that will be the case, but hey, I might wish the sun back.
A happy thought — sunshine. =)
And more sunshine… just got a text from my sister.. “Love you, too, sis..” I can never have too much love. Today I am being showered by it. And like I wrote this morning, I have constantly felt “His” presence — through it all, He was there with me. Maybe that’s why I’m still up.
Thank you, Lord, for another day.
