Feb 24 -- An eventful weekend
Sunday, February 24, 2013
So much has happened that it's hard to believe it's only been 48 hours.
Yesterday, my son took his written test for his beginner's license. He passed and is now legal to get behind the wheel. He drove for the first time this a.m. chauffeuring me to church. It will take a lot to teach him to drive but I am praying for strength and patience that I can accomplish the task at hand.
I got a call this weekend that my background check has come through and I start training to work as Direct Support staff for the developmentally disabled (including my oldest son) on March 4. I'm thankful for this opportunity because so often I have had to take care of things that would normally fall on staff because Support can be very "flaky". It isn't a lot of hours so I won't make a large sum, but every little bit helps. I'm hoping to make enough to pay for insurance for my husband and I.
We had a wonderful church service this a.m. and I was so glad to have my son at my side for Praise Team. He frequently fills in when one of the guys is out sick or vacationing, and he did a great job even though he didn't get to practice with us.
Tomorrow will be very busy, so I'll have to start preparing tonight. Good News Club is right after school and I have a lesson plan to study and "dice" to make for our memory verse games. Tomorrow evening my family is hosting our school's Fellowship of Christian Athletes so I have to find a meal or snack that's appropriate for 35 high school kids that won't break the bank or take all day to prepare. Sometime during the day I have to figure out how to get my son's meds because there is a problem with his script and his medical coverage :( Of course, a workout tomorrow is a must as well. How am I going to get it all done?!?!?!
I hope everyone has had a wonderful and productive weekend. May your heart-light keep Sparking and shine brighter than ever!!!
