He was still in pretty bad pain when try out time approached but he made it up to the school. About 20 min. after I knew he was suppose to be there....I got a text from him saying that because he had not been at school yesterday.....he was now ineligible for Esprit. I knew he was upset and I was more than upset. I couldn't believe that the thing he had most wanted had just slipped away this year.....over something he had no control over. Because after thinking about the whole situation, if i had it to do over again....I would still have kept him home. I would have had no choice, it would have been what was best for him and as a parent.....I had to go with that.
After his initial disappointment, he took it all in stride and just said..."it wasn't my time." He like myself (I guess) realizes that this whole thing was taken out of our hands from start to finish. Obviously God has other plans than for Z to be in Esprit this year. Who are we to try and override God? It is what it is and we move on. For Z.....he should be very used to that by now.
I called the drs. after hours line and his dr. said to take him back into the ER. So I guess after I get David to school, Z and I will be on our way to the ER. I guess this is how my day is going to be. Sounds fun....right? Jealous yet?
The light at the end of the tunnel here? Sunday is Easter....Lent will be over.....and I can have a Diet Mt. Dew. If ever I needed one.....it would be this week!
Your Photo Here.............(Day 29)
Here is her blog. I thought this was such a kind gesture to think of me in such away and the words she put on the photo...."Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart.(Psalm 37:4) make me smile each time I read them.
The gift was terribly fitting for that time in my life and continues to be one I look at on down days (like today) and pull strength from. As I said.....my photo of hers....does not do it justice. Thank you Andrea for thinking of me and giving me such as wonderful gift!
Okay guys....it's Thursday....just one more day to go. Here's hoping you have a wonderful and blessed Holy Thursday!
