Life has been a little bit hectic lately...that usually means that it's time to do the next right thing, whatever the next right thing is. Or, in other words, just keep swimming!
It's an understatement to say that work has been busy and that I've been putting in extra time at the office. It's been difficult and there has been much stress-related crying. What gets me through it? Knowing that the work I do is making a very real difference in the lives of the people I help. Every once in awhile I get to do something or deliver some news that changes someone's life. This past week, for example, I was able to make it possible for a girl to go to college...her family has been having a very rough time and is on the brink of homelessness. To make a college eduction possible for her was not something I did alone, but with the help of many people from across the College. I am confident that this family will always remember me, but more importantly, I am confident that this girl will learn the lesson that help is always there and can come from any source.
My lesson these past few weeks? When I'm overwhelmed with all of my own stuff, just keep swimming. Do the right thing and be of service to others. The help I need will find me.
