So after a Superwoman morning, it didn’t last and I feel I spectacularly messed up this afternoon.
Daur1 contacted me at end of school (using a friend’s phone – hers is broken and we haven’t replaced it, yet) to say Daur2 had an activity after school so what should they do. I was certain I said, “wait for her and come to office” (about 10 main walk). However they never arrived. Thinking the activity had run late, or they had gone to the library to wait for me, I walked up to library, to school, back to the office. Nothing. By now, (nearly 30mins after I first expected them) my husband knew what was happening and said to let him know when I ‘found’ them. I didn’t quite fall on my knees but I was certainly worried. Then, a call from our home phone – Daur1, in a voice almost as distressed as I felt, saying I had said, “wait for her and go straight home.” I called my husband – he was out, driving, no doubt looking for them.
So I arrived home, dear children and husband safe and well, exhausted (I had my laptop on my back since I’d left work early).
To add to my distress this afternoon, my colleague came back from a meeting with the local authority tree officer to say it was bad news – some trees need to stay – do we redesign? I brought it home to look at – I think we can move the building further away from the tree and pavement – but we still need to inform the client!! At least we know!
I really need to go running – it’s been a while – early morning seminary has started back and then with making early morning station drops, that leaves me with no time in the morning. I already wake before 6h every work day. I’m going to try tomorrow and Saturday…
I’m rambling now so I’ll finish. But, truly, I have much to learn and hopefully one day, my weaknesses can become my strengths (Ether 12 v27).
And if men come unto me I will show unto them their weakness. I give unto men weakness that they may be humble; and my grace is sufficient for all men that humble themselves before me; for if they humble themselves before me, and have faith in me, then will I make weak things become strong unto them.
