I have had every second of my life scheduled for a while now. I don't do well with that. I really need down time. I should have a few seconds to myself this weekend.
I am also super-frustrated because my phone is not working right. My fella called me last night at 8:30, and the phone did not ring. The sound of a voice mail woke me up at 3:00 a.m. This also happened on Friday night. It is very hard to plan to get together when your phone doesn't work. I went to the AT&T store on Saturday and got a new SIM card, thinking maybe that was the problem. It wasn't. One of my friends called last night and she couldn't hear me - I tried to call her back but wasn't able to get a call through at all.
I think it might be worth the penalty to ditch my contract with AT&T and go back to Verizon - I absolutely never had a problem with them in the 15 years I was with them. But then, fickle me, I decided I HAD to have an iPhone and switched to AT&T - just months before Verizon got iPhones.
Sorry for having no coherent message today. I am tired and frustrated. And you know what? The sponsee who calls me a lot always gets through... so I guess that is good. This morning she left in the middle of a meeting to call me. She was whispering.
I am grateful I can be the sober woman on the other end of the phone when it rings. I am grateful I can be relied upon to be me - every single day of my life. That is a good thing.
A few years ago one of my friends said this to me. "Do you know why I absolutely trust you Mary? - Because you are the same person every single time I see you or talk to you." That was high praise indeed.
The Grace of God is seemingly infinite.
