When I got home from work last night I was thrilled to see that the carpet had been torn out of the living room, dining room, hallway, and stairs. I tell you, even the bare sub-flooring looks better than that carpet did! The acoustics of my house are entirely different. In fact, it was slightly unsettling as I was trying to go to sleep last night. My house just sounds and feels different. I am thrilled with the progress.
I was also thrilled to see my daughter working with my sponsee (she is helping her with this project). Seeing two people you love get to know each other is just so heartwarming. My sponsee said that she is actually a good worker, which we weren't really expecting because of the physical state she is in due to years of alcoholism and drug addiction. And then to see that my daughter said at 5:30 - "I have to go to my 6:00 meeting." Her meetings have become an integral part of her life, something I never thought I would live to see. I drove her to her meeting, and then drove myself to Biblical School... and it was a great night.
I have another long day ahead. But this morning when I prayed, I thanked God for this day and all that it may bring. And I mean it.
