After my crummy day on Friday, I rested well and headed back to church early Saturday morning to help with the second funeral meal. Rearranging a few flower arrangements, getting place settings on the tables, and making lemonade was really all that was needed of me. There was a larger group of church ladies on Saturday due to it not being a work day. The kitchen was humming and I could see I wasn’t really needed.
I headed out to get groceries for this next week as I will be returning to my school chaplain routine and life will be a bit busier. After doing a few loads of laundry, I landed on the couch, much like Friday, with a cup of tea and my book. It was a cold, gloomy, rainy afternoon, so I pulled my hoody up and nodded off.
Awaking, I felt so much better. Imagine, just like a small child, all I needed was a nap.
Today brought sunshine for most of the day. I was ordained as a Presbyterian deacon and warmly congratulated by the congregation of our church. Terry tried out for the choir and was kindly accepted into their fold. We came home afterwards to a bowl of warm soup, more laundry, and some yard work. Life is getting back to normal.
