Her step-mother will also be there. We will not be sitting together. Her step mother really does not like me and won't speak to me. I see that as her problem as I have tried over the years to mend that relationship. I can only mend my portion of that deal. The way she feels about me is none of my business. And she is welcome to hate me if it makes her feel any better. I don't hate her back and for that I am truly grateful.
I took the day off tomorrow. My knitting is not done and I need to have it done by about noon tomorrow. So I have tomorrow morning to get it done. I have absolutely no doubt that I can accomplish that - handily.
I will be happy to be away from the hospital as it has been on lock down for the last two days. A now former employee has "gone postal" and it is felt that there is a real risk of something catastrophic happening. It is kind of hard to concentrate with that going on.
"We can believe that God is in his heaven and He has a purpose for our lives, which will eventually work out as long as we try to live the way we believe He wants us to live. It has been said that we should 'wear the world like a loose garment.' That means that nothing should seriously upset us because we have a deep, abiding faith that God will always take care of us. To us that means not to be too upset by the surface wrongness of things, but to feel deeply secure in the fundamental goodness and purpose in the universe." - from the 24 hour book - July 16.
