This is the scripture I'm holding onto today as emotions were raised once again in response to the mean girls in the 5th grade group at church. I was simply looking through Facebook and came across a photo posted by the Children's Director of the girls she had taken to girls camp today. Her daughter, their neighbor, the four mean girls and one girl that is also from a broken home so fits in easily with them. My daughter saw the photo and it just filled her with anger. I'd been wondering how the emotions were running about them since it has been months since she's had any dealings with them and she's been in counseling. Guess we still have a lot of work to do. Eventually it gave way to tears for losing her friend (the CD's daughter) and I reminded her that she wasn't a true friend if she could desert her this easily and not believe in her when she cried "bullying." I will admit I am still working through some frustration with the CD, but I do turn to prayer more quickly than I used to about this situation.
Otherwise...today I spent time getting finances caught up and bills paid. Praying for God's provision here as well as the expensive doctor visits for the hubby and I have definitely caught up and when you see different types (not clearly MDs) the insurance does not pay as much for visits, procedures and meds. We'll get there...just need to make more adjustments.
Kids had fun at swim lessons and Maegann is a bit nervous for tomorrow as the teacher is going to help her get on that diving board and jump. It's a fear she really needs to conquer and this instructor has handled her so well. Won't help at all if Isaac gets on that board tomorrow with his class and dives off! They are going to have their turn on that tomorrow and he's pumped! Such opposites!
Then we had a picnic (Subway) at the park before heading to Isaac's counseling appointment. Got there to find it was actually on Wednesday and it wasn't my mistake! Good to know when you feel your mind is slipping some days!
This afternoon I did a few things at home, got the chicken ready for baking and then took a nap. Tonight I watched MasterChef while sparking and am almost caught up to the current season so will have to start taping it on Wednesday's.
Tomorrow I'll begin my day going to the doctor that is 40 min. away for my follow-up. She's the one that gave me snake poison (naturopathic pellets) to help my cycles and moods and scar injections to get the nerves working again. Hopefully I won't need more of those injections. Just uncomfortable. Should be home in plenty of time to take the kids swimming.
