Pamela's Daybook: May 11


+


Today: While I'm not happy Emily is in pain, it's a treat to have her curled up here. She thought she would go to the school at noon for a case conference, but realized she couldn't walk from the parking lot to the meeting site. She's calling in to do her part. Don't tell anyone, but I think I was a tad (or bigger) bit happy Jonathon had to work.


At my writing desk: Called in sick. Ha! Maybe mental health -- RB told me he really liked my outfit. I looked down to discover a purple, black, and white skirt with a red and burgundy paisley top. I changed my mind after I had put my skirt on, but my brain didn't tell me to wear a different (i.e. matching) top. We had a good laugh. 

In the mail: I don't remember getting the mail yesterday. Do you have a favorite go-to brand of note cards, or do you use a variety? I have favorite brands (Rifle Card Company, Paper Source, Papyrus), but for economic reasons I use other brands. However, I draw the line at super cheap envelopes. 

Praying for: A couple whose 8-month-old baby was smothered by a blanket while sleeping. 

Thankful for: Camron -- He gave me seven kisses Sunday when I kissed him good-bye. Made this Mawmaw's heart so happy.

I'm reading:  Lysa Terkeurst's post -- "Devastated But Not Destroyed."  
 In the midst of our own devastation, Lysa reminds us that "God is a Redeemer. A Healer. The Author of hope. The Pathway of restoration. The great I AM."

Postmarking: I worked on some cards this morning while visiting with Emily. If time, Emma and I are going to work on some after school.  

Favorite quote:

  9. I really like that you "take stock" of the day and actually think about the things that you are thankful for, praying for, etc. It's a great way to lead a purposeful life.
