What an interesting week this has been! I've been slowly getting better – just have the lingering cough thing, which frankly is more annoying to the people around me than it is to me (sorry boss & Dr. M). Work has been extra busy for about a week now. I often joke that I don't really work very hard, and it's true that we can have (long) periods of downtime, but this past week was a major exception. In addition to a dramatic increase in my usual workload, my old boss in HR is between admins so I've been helping her, and the admin for our president quit unexpectedly, so I've been helping him. Yes, that's right, I'm doing the work of three admins right now. And I LOVE it! I much prefer being busy & figuring out how to do new things. And of course I like proving how indispensible I am to the company. Heh. So, I'm extra thankful for my job this week.
Of course the extra work means I don't get around to all my usual blogs as quickly. And my comments might be brief & nonsensical. Well, that's actually probably not that different, is it?
I'm also thankful for my Bible Study group. We're small, but mighty. We're reading The Good Book by Peter Gomes right now (actually we just finished the first chapter) and I do believe I might be getting ready to learn some things.
I'm thankful that Dr. M and I discovered some encouraging financial news this week. We still need to work on this area, but it felt nice to hear something good for a change.
I'll leave you with this odd poem that just appeared from my fingertips:
Where is your sad heart?
On a peg by the door…
ready to be donned
at any moment.
For now, though
I shall dance
in the firelight
