So generally, Friday is my day off. But this week because of things happening at the church, and in order to spend some time with a good friend, I took Thursday off.
The day started, inauspiciously, with a dead car battery. UGH! I am SUCH a girl when it comes to things like this. I literally sat in the car for a good 5 minutes panicking. I had no idea what to do or how to deal with this. Eventually, the panic subsided and it became clear I needed to call for help. That was quite the process itself (called my secretary for advice, then the church custodian to see if he could give me a boost, then Honda Roadside when it became clear that I wouldn’t be able to get a traditional boost due to the fact that the car was inside my (super-tiny) garage).
After about a half an hour and a $45 charge to my Visa, my car was back in working order. I headed off to a day of shopping and spending time with friends. And it was fabulous.
Lots of laughter. Some great bargains. Time with two of the best girls I know…and one of the sweetest little men I have the pleasure of knowing.
Looking back at the day, I have to admit – I am so glad that sometimes how a day starts, isn’t how it ends. I am thankful that there are twists and turns in life, and that I cannot imagine what the day will hold.
I am thankful that all of this is held in the palm of a Loving Father.
And I am thankful that if I publish this post now, I will still meet my deadline for posting a blog entry every day in November!
One thought on “Sometimes how it starts, isn’t how it ends.”
Song in my head now is “It’s not where you start, it’s where you finish…”
So I found Barbara Cook doing the song. I think she’s wonderful but then I’m a sucker for showtunes and great voices.
