I’m not very good at being a working woman, even if it is part time. I am getting so behind on stuff. Plus this is Rob’s last week home so trying to enjoy that time and also help him get things done that need to before he leaves. I figure that after he is gone maybe I can get into some better schedule with my time.
The weather is going to be in the 40’s today and I can’t wait! At least I hope so, right now it is 26 so that doesn’t look good. Yesterday I took Rob to the doctor because he has had a bad cough and congestion that wasn’t clearing up. Diagnosis was sinus infection, maybe a little bronchitis, so he got some antibiotics and cough syrup, so that should clear up ok. I’m glad we went, I would have hated to send him back to college being sick. Today is my day off so we are going to go do a little shopping this afternoon for some things he needs. Also other catch up stuff is doing some laundry, cleaning, etc etc. Plus I need to write a newsletter to send out to the Bluebird Society.
I know I am still in a season of transition in my life, facing so much change it seems like. I need to find my feet again. I got a couple of good books about dealing with this stage of life, the empty nest, mid-life stuff, so I need to find more time to study about that. Plus I know with my kids gone, and working, I am learning some things about myself that I don’t like very much, or at least things that are my weaknesses that I need to work on. A devotional I read the other day emphasized Psalm 121:
I lift up my eyes to the hills- Where does my help come from?
My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.
He will not let your foot slip –
He who watches over you will not slumber;
Indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.
The LORD watches over you
The LORD is your shade at your right hand;
The sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night.
The LORD will keep you from all harm –
He will watch over your life;
The LORD will watch over your coming and going
Both now and forevermore.
I know I need to keep my eyes on God for my help, my identity, my strength. These floundering feelings I have right now show me that I haven’t been doing that enough. So I guess I’ll start right now and go sit down with my Bible for a while. You all have a fantastic day!
