Feeling a little feisty and a little... I don't know, something else. I'm a boss where I work, and one of the people I supervise is going through a huge ordeal with cancer. No one knows but she and I, and of course MY boss who demands (rightfully so) to be kept apprised of stuff like that. So I just gave my friend a few little presents to help her in her down time, and said goodbye to her for 8 weeks while she goes through major surgery and recovery. Then I came out to the main room, and had to act as though nothing is wrong. It makes me feel almost queasy to think of what she is going through, and I'm feeling not only powerless but really pissed off about being powerless. And yet at the same time, both of us have faith in God, and we are both Christians... so I'm a little ashamed of being pissed off. She, on the other hand, is dealing remarkably well. I guess its a sign of my youth (ha, ha) that she was comforting ME just a little there in my office, and she's the one going through hell right now. Anyway, its prompting me to think a little more inwardly and to wander around in my heart a little more right now..... lets see where that leads......
