It seems like ages since I updated my blog. So much has gone on. Let's see if I can break it down.
*fellow social worker quit 2 weeks after I started - am I really that hard to work with?
*had the whole building to myself
*daughter has started second semester of college
*son is in 7th grade
*busier than a one armed paper hanger
*Stephen's mom passed away
*I ended up in ICU...
*got new social worker
*company has been sold....that was a surprise
*attended my husband's 25th high school class reunion
That is all I can think of right now!
It has been a busy time in my life, but I am very blessed. This is the biggest learning curve, at work, that I have ever had. It has been some stressful times, and I have thought about giving up. But, those that know me, know that I don't give up easily. A friend of mine told me that in the Catholic religion, that if you name the person who you are praying for it gives the prayer more power. I don't know, but I will tell you since my melt down last week, I have been naming names in my prayers. You see, I had to come to realize that God is BIGGER than any company I work for, any supervisor or anybody. So that may sound silly that I had to realize that, but maybe it was just that I needed a reminder.
I have a beautiful view out of my window at work. The building I work at is on top of a mountain. So the day I had the meltdown, I opened the window and just let the fresh air blow in my face. I looked down the mountain at God's creation. I literally prayed for God to put His hand a little tighter over my mouth! No joke...true story!
I have prayed everyday since then, and my oh my how that changes things. I have always struggled with my prayer life, but I still work on it. I fail miserably everyday at being the Christian that God wants me to be. But I can tell you, that I try very hard.
My job is very stressful. There is no set routine. Things change from minute to minute, but I still feel that I do what God called me to do. A friend of mine told me not long ago that not only does God open a door when another one closes, He is on both sides of the door to start with. I really had to think about that one!
So that is what life has dealt me in the last few weeks...I do have some funny stories to post, but that will have to come at a later time.
Love to all,
