Oh man, I feel like singing praise songs! What comes to mind is "This is the day (this is the day), that the Lord hath made (that the Lord hath made). I will rejoice (I will rejoice), and be glad in it (and be glad in it)!" Yeah, I should sing that song more when I'm having a horrible week, to remind myself that the Lord allows the bad with the good, but it's a happy song. What can I say?!
On this day I got to spend my time doing what I love doing. I spent a balanced amount of time emailing and talking on the phone with pre- or post- adoptive families. I even got to give news of a visa approval! I had enough down time to help my kids with school and not be a complete grouch to them. It was JUST. RIGHT.
Most important to my day was what I did NOT have to do! I didn't have to work while sick (like last week). I didn't have to give anybody bad news. I didn't have to think about fees or budget or numbers. I didn't have to spend time on stuff I dislike doing, getting behind on the stuff I do like doing! When I get up in the morning I won't be way behind and I only have good things to look forward to.
Yes! I will rejoice and be glad in it!
P.S. Oh, and did I mention I'm going to Ghana?! ;-) Tickets are purchaed! I'm leaving March 8th and returning March 22nd!
