With school ... tests... midterms... clinicals ... studying ... work... weddings... travel arrangements for the weddings...possible job changes...future living arrangement changes...I got a little stressed. Okay, I was driving josh nuts because I was so stressed out. The short weekends together were/are bliss but it seems they replenish me for about a day....and then it was back to the grind. So, I was talking with josh on my work break and he says to me "why don't you go home". To me this seems impossible because i have this unhealthy addiction to work unless I am deathly ill I cannot feel right in leaving! ...but regardless I listened....and boy am I surprised (not!) to find out he was right. It didn't kill me to go home early...my boss didn't shout at me or get all disappointed in me...I still have a job tomorrow- I wasn't fired on the spot...I felt bad for the first few minutes but it passed and was replaced with relief...took me a few minutes more to try and relax but eventually I remembered how. So, I found myself at the throne...singing and playing my guitar which had gotten dusty in the last few months from disuse. My fingers now hurt but my heart and spirit are more at peace than they have been in weeks. Thanks honey for again realizing when I am need of a little R&R at the throne and forcing me to get some. I love you!
Thank God it is the weekend! Between school and work and studying and house stuff....yikes! Talk about feeling overwhelmed. There are not enough hours in the day. But on the up side....what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. Stronger...physically, emotionally but more important spiritually. Count it all joy right?! My God is faithfully getting me through school as I try to fit it in studying on my 15 min work breaks and before my eyelids droop at night. I have my first fire ride along next Friday...woohoo! excited and scared spit-less. Life is an adventure...exciting stuff.
