Momentous Friday

Today I have a meeting that will probably decide my future career.  I have an opportunity, but I need for it to be good in order to make the move.  I put my "needs" out on the table last week and today I should find out how close we can get to an agreement.

Yesterday I cleaned my office.  It was a wonderful feeling.  I never take the time to do this.  I "straighten up" and "clean off my desk," but don't really go through things and take reams and reams of paper to the shred bins as I did yesterday.  I also took two huge bags of clothing to donate to the clothing lab for the patients - the bags have been in the back of my car for a couple of months.

This morning I have done my morning prayer and meditation.  I have painted my nails a nice conservative pink/beige.  I will put my hair in rollers and get in the tub.  I will wear the grey flannel Armani skirt that was my sister's birthday gift to me last year.  It just looks like a skirt - but it feels like a million bucks - which is roughly what it cost.

I will put my best foot forward, and trust in God.

And hopefully I will get to see my daughter today.  She works in the same building as I do and she said she will be back to work today.   I hope I will talk with my other daughter today - last I talked to her, she was crying about her sister.  Actually the last time I talked with both of them they were crying.  This too shall pass....

Whatever happens, I plan to stay sober today, and hope you do too.

OH - and if you want to read a wonderful reflection on the nature of our disease, go see my friend AnyEdge today.

I will hold you in my thoughts today and say a prayer for the "perfect" outcome to happen.

I am hoping that the outcome will be good. I am sure that all this will work out.

Me too, that way I know that whatever happens it's meant to be

I have become a bit afraid of "momentous" days, in our house that would turn out negative.

But for you--I hope today is HUGE in a wondrous, God given way.

Hoping for the best outcome for you! That skirt sounds fabulous, by the way.

Thinking of you and hoping for the best. That skirt sounds magnificent, I once had a Christian Dior cardigan that looked like any other beige cardigan but felt like cashmere heaven.
