And suddenly there appeared with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among men with whom He is pleased.”
Luke 2:13 – 14
Things I did today:
I walked through a chilly mist of rain, struggling to keep my hood on in the wind.
I put a band-aid on my sliced finger.
I spent hours integrating incomprehensible equations.
I had a nice surprise.
I turned our IQP, protected by Price Chopper bags, in to the registrar.
I listened to a sad story of wooly knitting.
I took a very hot bath to warm icy toes.
I took a band-aid off my sliced finger.
I checked my empty mailbox twice.
I bought Christmas presents.
I put a band-aid back on my sliced finger.
It has not been a bad day, although much more math looms in my distant future and my finger hurts. I felt hopeless earlier this afternoon, but have found peace that I only hope will stay with me. Once I have studied my hardest, all I can do is show what I know. If that passes me, so be it; if not, it’s a Christmas break of integration for yours truly. But God is good, and dinner calls. Ah, leftovers, staple of finals week.
Very soon now. Very.
