Another Day...

I could lament what I failed to accomplish today, as once again things took longer than anticipated and unexpected demands were made on my time, or I could celebrate what I did manage to accomplish.
The bulletins for December 20, 24, 27, and January 3 are now done. The January newsletter is done, and for the first time we saved it as a pdf and sent it by email to people who had requested that option.
I delegated the genealogy research that was requested in an email I received yesterday from a different country. Daughter has seen Therapist, and has come up with a plan for dealing with her struggles.
Right now I'm trying to decide if I'm going to keep a lunch appointment with a colleague tomorrow or try to find someone to take shut-in communion with me tomorrow afternoon. I think I'll stick with the lunch. I need a break.
Saturday I have reserved to take Daughter to City Christmas shopping. Fitting everything in is always a challenge at this time of the year. It is a time of year where crises are magnified, like the unhappy wife I spoke with yesterday. The husband is now seeking time with me, as well. I take it as a high compliment that they are coming back to me for help getting their marriage back on track. It would be nice, though, if their marriage had gotten off track during a slower time of year....

Hope the plan goes well.

And the Saturday shopping.

The thing about Christmas is that they still have 51 weeks in which the crisis may not be magnified.

Great work on the PDF for the 3rd of January.

Thanks. I'm quite proud of the pdf myself.

Hopefully working through the crisis will strengthen their marriage for the other 51 weeks.
