Eleven Degrees

No running for Mary Christine this morning. It is too freaking cold outside. I hope to get to work early so I can leave early. There is a part of me that is dreading going to work today. I got a bunch of frantic calls yesterday while I was off. I called in to find out what was going on and it is something I have never dealt with before and I am not particularly looking forward to it. Often times these things that cause anxiety are my greatest lessons and cause the exhilaration of discovery and triumph! That is, as long as I put one foot in front of the other and walk through them and don't try to avoid them.

My birthday was fabulous. On my way to get a manicure yesterday (my little treat for myself) I decided to stop at Safeway and get the stuff to make pizza. The kids were so glad I decided to make it myself. I told them they were responsible for dessert and I didn't care what they got. My son brought a huge bag full of dilly bars from Dairy Queen. What fun!

So I am off to face my day. I will suit up and show up and leave the results to God.

And be incredibly grateful for this way of life.
