Today (after 3.5 hours sleep last night) I....
... had the pleasure of visiting with four amazing homeowners.
... unfortunately had to confront a co-worker who'd been speaking ill of our agency and me personally to other groups working on the coast.
... stumbled across a new contact who has grand plans of coordinating folks in NC to send volunteers and materials to the Gulf Coast to help rebuild!
...spent two and a half hours trying to find a way to help some one with serious mental health issues.
... spent that same two and a half hours simply being the listening ear that some one hadn't had in quite some time.
... joyfully received a gift of a hand-painted humming bird feeder from my two and a half hour new best friend.
... processed a bit of paperwork.
... received word that the much anticipated donation of furniture for a child's bedroom had arrived in town!
... risked my life traveling in a nearly-dead-truck down Hwy 10.
... realized how happy I was to be working with a co-worker this week, and not all alone, for a change.
... was welcomed into the hearts and (albeit temporary) home of an amazingly faithful couple we've worked with for a while- and was again reminded of their strength, hope, and love.
...joyfully received a gift of freshly caught fish and the loaned use of a fry-daddy.
... heart full of love, went to visit a roommate at work.
... beside myself with frustration, locked myself in my room for the night.
... sat quietly and worked on some prayers of thanksgiving, that today I had the chance to experience so much joy and really loved my job.
