I just got a call from my chief in editor. She nicely informed me that they had decided to go with someone else for the position of assistant news editor. It’s understandable. I mean, I haven’t been doing my best lately and I can always do better. Besides, I’ve been blessed a lot lately with new friends, the encouragement of long-time best friends and also the possibility of a new job at the bookstore that I have been hoping to have for a while. So although I am saddened by this second time denial…I will not give up. I will be thankful for these other opportunities that have arisen, and I will continue to pursue the opportunities I have sought after. Thank the Lord, for He is good.
In other news, I got to talk to my mom and my brother today. I got a voice mail from my dad so I knew I could catch my parents at home. I found out that my dad was in a horrible accident that totaled the Explorer. Apparently it did a cartwheel, running into a telephone pole, through a cement planter box and the air bags didn’t even open. The window was bashed (completely gone), and the car as a whole looked as though someone had dropped it off a cliff. But thank the Lord God, my dad came out without a scratch on him. In fact, he couldn’t remember even getting in the car. He woke up on the floor of his office, looked at the clock and thought he had just fallen asleep so he got up and walked out to get in the car and go home. He saw the car was completely wrecked and called my mom thinking that someone had taken the car for a joy ride and returned it as a disaster. They called the police and they investigated. It took them a while to even find the site of the accident. My dad went in to get a cat scan the other day and we’re still awaiting results. He seems fine and he’s convinced nothing is wrong. But the police think he might have had a mild seizer and blacked out. I pray everything is alright. It seems weird that he didn’t even mention it when he called earlier today and left a message talking about how the business has a meeting near Disney World and they’re paying for our trip there. He told me we had an extra room so I could bring a friend…he was so excited about it! And he was eager to hear all about my Valentine’s Day date and to find out how my life has been and what God has been doing. I thank the Lord for my parents and I thank Him that my father is alright and safe.
