I'll get to why I am Oprah in a minute.
I have been battling the creeping crud again. That thing that disguises itself as a head cold until three days later when all your....stuff...is green, indicating infection and me with no sick time till July 1st. Not that I would call in sick, but seeing a doctor would be nice. I do, however, have some leftover antibiotics from the sinus infection which I started popping today. I was pretty low key all weekend, just trying to kick this thing; only did some little things around the house and my church stuff on Sunday. The crud is still hanging on.
Work is still good. Caught up on all the backlog by last Wednesday. Today I was actually bored as my boss and our new Events Coordinator went off site to a meeting. In the absence, I finished what I was doing and then looking around for more work. I found T, who I LOVE...what a doll...and she asked if I could put away supplies that had just been delivered to the supply closet. I wound up cleaning out the supply closet, at least 90% of it. It was in desperate need.
Another interesting story, at least to me. Last week we had a staff meeting and they made us new kids get up there and introduce ourselves and then opened the floor for anyone to ask us anything, which was rather interesting. One of the things that came up during my Q&A was that I sing with the praise band at my church. After the meeting Nice Girl approaches me. I call her this as she was one of the first people to talk to me and has always been very sweet. We ended up talking about church and how she was very hurt by her last church (hmmm..sound familar?) and that she had not been in a church for about two years since that. I told her that I had a similar experience but that I went and found a new church that I have been not only thrilled with, but spiritually uplifted by. At the end of our conversation, she hugged me and said "I'm so glad you're here!"
Today, NG (Nice Girl) came in and rushed over to me and said "I went to a new church yesterday! It was like coming home! I had missed going so much!" She went on to tell me how two people she had not seen in a long time were members there (she did not know this when she walked in the church doors Sunday) and how they were able to reconnect. Loved seeing her JOY! Loved seeing how God is already using me in some ways that I am not aware of till they happen which just seals the deal on the fact that I am where I am supposed to be!
So, Oprah! I have a new favorite thing. Check this out! I can't stop watching it, but then I love birds! And she has some babies under her!
