Waiting Day

I was told that there was a big possibility that I would get Tony's remains today. So I waited and waited.... I checked my email this morning, and it said that I would get the preliminary results today. So I waited and waited......

That's right. Nothing. I did miss a phone call during the day, but they didn't leave a message. I have said before that I HATE waiting. So I got to wait today. I guess I will wait tomorrow. Wait...let me go check my email again. Nope. Nothing.

Other than that (constantly waiting for the phone to call and checking the email constantly), the day was pretty good. I paid a couple bills. Found out that I might have 2 people interested in buying my house. That's good. Now I just have to come up with a price.

Tonight we worked on the Silent Auction Baskets for the BNC Youth Oscars. The Oscars are on Saturday! I am looking forward to it. It will be tough, but the kids are so cute. I think I know which baskets I want to bid on. I probably won't win, but I want to bid anyway.

Then I got to sneak out of that and pray with the junior high girls at Youth Group. That was cool. They are really nice. I also worked on getting the buckets ready for children's church on Sunday. That was tedious, so it was good.

I saw a bunch of older couples today. It occurred to me that I didn't get to do that anymore. I don't have anyone to grow old with now. It didn't hurt as much as I thought it would. I was kinda happy about that.

Did I tell you that I checked my phone and my email constantly today? Yep, I thought so. While doing most of the above mentioned activities, I was waiting....and it was fun (not really). But I did choose joy today even while waiting. I talked to the ladies at the pharmacy, and they gave me a card. They all loved Tony. I talked to the boss lady at our mobile home park. She made sure to give me special treatment. She loved Tony. I learned this week that I may not want to go through this, but I can do it. That's my motto for the week. I CAN DO THIS.      JOY


  1. Good morning Joy...did you check your email yet? :D You can do this! As Tom Petty says "The waiting is the hardest part" and that is oh so true. Ups and downs but with Christ you got this! Prayers...

  2. You can do this. One step at a time. One moment at a time. You are covered in love and prayers. I hope you have an ok day today my friend.
