This card is for my sil. Her surgery is today.
Finally, there's light...
Today is the first day of school. All three were early this morning. Whew. Remember, the last time I blogged, I decided that Monday was going to be a better day? Well, it didn't start off that way. I found out that there would be yet another delay in both the Driver's license and phone company/electrician sagas. I was so frustrated, because I wanted the kids to get the school year off to a good start. Have you ever been so down that it is even hard to read your Bible or pray?? That's where I was Monday morning. I sat down at my computer playing a game to distract me and to help me think. I think this when I had my second breakdown (yes, I am human). As I sat at the computer, my daughter brought me the mail. There was a very encouraging card in the mail from a sister in Christ (Thanks, Trish). Somehow that reminder that there were others out there praying for me gave me just the amount of strength I needed. I decided to just go to the county school board and convince (beg) them to register them w/o the tag receipt. The lady at check in said nonchalantly,"Oh they give you 30 days to get that". (Argh) I didn't know whether to be happy, or go and hunt down the girl that caused all this stress by telling me I would not be able to register w/o the tag receipt. I decided to wait and save the hunt for another day. I waited over three hours for my turn, but all went well.
I ran into a friend because of all this. We used to be in the same Sunday school class years ago in another town in GA. She was one of the workers who was pulled out of her office to help with registration because of the volume of folks waiting to register their kids. I may not have run into her if I had been there on that day.
Well, my time is up for the day. There is so much to tell... Thanks for the comments and emails.
