I know that we all get our fill of discouragement and pain. Here is how my day started. I was notified that my insurance was being canceled. I had several students at the school that I am a dierector of who got into a fight. The phamacy still did not have my perscription filled, they claimed the doctor's office never sent it. I had a sewer back up at the school. I started one at a time. The insurance company admitted they made a mistake. I called the doctor's office from the pharmacy and they resent the perscription electronically. The meds were refilled. I asked the doctor's office for a eval of my meds since I have not slept much in a week. They said the doc was out of town but would fit me in the first of the week. I dealt with the students and they are deciding to be friends, I find out the sewer back up is going to cost $$$$$$$. I made a phone call to a friend and he said he had a plumber who would come and fix the problem and only charge me for material. I just have to have several student dig the sewer pipe up. I have two that just proved they needed to be friends (the one who were fighting) and they get to dig the hole. Late tonight I sat with a young woman who was struggling with purging and wanting to hurt herself. I got to pour into her life and she left feeling much better and closer to walking in victory. Now I get home and the pain is still alive and well, but looking back at the day, I feel like the day went great. I am so glad I did not do the first thing I thought of after all the bad news hit this morning. Some times not everything is possitive but I find that if I look hard enough I can still find a few things that are good. I am sure there will be days ahead when I will wonder if anything good will happen. I am going to try and remember, sometimes good things happen. Blessings on all and hope some good things are happening to you.

Fatherjohn,
A lesson for us all. You decided how you were going to guide your way through the day, and made the choices you could with what you were handed.

Exhausting, but in the end satisfying. Nice work! And thanks for sharing and reminding us.
