Isn't this how it always goes: you gear yourself up for a tough week, ready to meet whatever challenges arise and your week rises right back up and smacks you right in the face?! This week has been a week. I wish I could say I handled it perfectly with grace an expertise. But...I'll be the first to confess I didn't handle things perfectly. I let little things get to me, my temper flare and I brought my work home and let it effect my home life. Thanks goodness that when I fall short, Someone is right there to reach out and meet me where I need it most.
This job has been such a learning process. I've never worked at a place where I felt so burdened, not only by the tasks I need to complete but also by the issues that are so evident. I'm in the midst of a broken family, but how do you complete the puzzle when the biggest pieces are missing? Sometimes it just feels so hopeless. I'm just one person here, what can I really do? What kind of difference can I truly make? I'm so grateful for the people in my life who encourage me and speak truth to me; those who remind me that I'm here for a reason. I'm going to go ahead and chalk this week up as a learning experience. It wasn't quite a "win" week but it most definitely wasn't a loss.
On a better note, I am SO excited that the weekend is slowly creeping it's way here! I covet the time I get to spend with Jason. He works so early all week, so I know how he enjoys sleeping in on the weekends. Too bad just the thought of spending my day with Jason wakes me up waaay too early every time...it's like a mini Christmas morning every weekend!! :)
