An Engagement

Yesterday after work, I had a doctor's appointment. The doctor and I had good news to share with each other. I have my temp-to-hire job and she just got engaged and her office was filled with flowers! I'm pretty sure she's in her 40's judging on when she started practicing. (I've been her patient for most of those years.) This just goes to show that being a single woman over 40 does NOT mean you are dead. And the diamonds (yes, plural) on her engagement ring - not too shabby. Okay, not the most important thing, but I'm impressed. I'm pretty sure there are no more diamonds left in the mine. And BIG diamonds too - large enough to serve as spotlights at a movie premiere.

And she's writing off my co-pays too!

Yay Doctor!!!!!

Hope then Discouragement then Hope Because Hope is All I Have.

So,

I've been working the past week in a temp-to-hire position. This means I'm a temp again and maybe they'll hire me.

I was excited at first until people started telling me stories about how temp agencies and companies never really hire temps. They just lie to you. Sigh.

I rather like this job. I hope I can keep it and be a real employee.

Too Much Time Reading

You know you've spent too much time reading blogs when you start dreaming about the people you read about. Last night I dreamt that I was babysitting a certain blogger's child and decided to potty train the child.

God Helps Those Who __________

When I was growing up I saw those t.v. commercials in which a woman brought home the bacon and fried it in a pan. In my early college years I became friends with an angry feminist. I went to college in the years of the Yuppie. I live in the Land of Opportunity where many people pulled themselves up by their bootstraps.

I'm unemployed and feel so powerless.

My best just isn't making it.

I rely more and more on God and miracles and hope.

I feel so weak. I feel so guilty like I'm not pulling my own weight.

I think and then I feel so overwhelmed. So I dump it all on God. Didn't we hear in a recent reading at church that His yoke is lighter? But then I feel so inadequate.

But when I try to do it all myself, I feel like I get nowhere.

But when I give it all to God, I just go on my merry way. Then I think again and know I should be doing more to help myself.  So where's the fine line between taking responsibility and giving it all to God?

I like giving it all to God, but then I feel lazy. I get lazy.

I try to solve my own problems all by myself. After all, I have a brain. Yet there is much out of my control. There is heaviness that I can't carry by myself. So I turn to God and enjoy another day. But then I feel disappointed in myself for not succeeding.

I am so tired of this treadmill. I turn to God then I feel like a wimp.

What am I trying to say?
