The blessing is in the blessing! Lessons from Day 2

So I woke up this morning with the kind of migraine that was debilitating... the kind that keep me from seeing and usually make me puke.  Great... wet ground, cast, migraine. This super woman put away her cape and laid back down.  No use in being stupid.  I slept a little longer, drank an iced tea, took an excedrin migraine and worked from home.  How about that?  the world did not end because I put my cape away!  Here's a few lessons I learned (and kind of already knew).

I'm a giver.  My friends had their baby today... my second thought... how am I going to get them meals?  Oh, I've got a plan... but it's weird, I can't even walk without crutches and I want to serve.  Crazy!

The blessing is in the blessing!  I sent an early Christmas gift Tuesday, it's already at it's destination... I think I'm more excited than the recepiant. 

If you ask for help, you won't die.  I needed to go to Sam's (Ok needed/wanted) and so I asked my dad to take me...I have this ridiculous thing... I don't ask for help and then get mad when no one helps.  Duh!  SO I asked for help, I got it.  I'm happy, and I didn't hate it.  I didn't love it, but I didn't hate it :)  And another thing done!

I also needed help with getting the air conditioner out of Phyllis's room.  I asked someone to help me... he's coming Saturday!  How about that?  Pretty Sweet! 

The blessing is in the blessing!

Acts 20:35 In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’
