In the afternoon I went out to a couple of meetings at the place I worked for so long. People were truly happy to see me. Based on years of experience with me. That was so gratifying to me.
This morning I shall walk back into the belly of the beast. The 23rd Psalm springs to mind. I will just go in there knowing that God is with me. Knowing that my work is fine and the rest of my life is none of their damn business.
Just one day away from there restores my peace, my self-confidence, and my ability to cope and reason.
This too shall pass. That’s all. This too shall pass. Some day I will look back on this time as my year in hell. And hope to God it doesn’t get to be much more than a year.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil; for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. — Psalm 23
p.s. In the mailbox yesterday were two separate cards from friends. Both of them were just to tell me how much they loved me and appreciated my kindness, my humor, and my laugh. Thank you God.
