I want a nap

I am so tired today. Tired enough that I cried at work. And I didn't even have a reason to.

Well, maybe I did, but not at the time I cried.

Shilo, our mama cat, died last week. I got her 6 years ago when she was about 7 weeks old. She had five 2 week old kitties. Thursday evening when the babies were crying and crying and crying I realized I hadn't seen Shilo all day. When I hadn't seen her by Friday morning I was getting worried and started praying for her to come home. About 10 a.m. Trevor called me and let me know that he had just found her. Then one of the babies died before I got home with milk replacement formula and kitty bottles.

So I have been feeding babies. I don't like 2 a.m. feedings.

But last night they slept from 11:30 p.m. to 6:30 a.m. But I am still tired from the other nights of no sleep.

Saturday I went to prom. It was my first prom and even though I spent the night in the foyer checking tickets, etc. it was a fun night and all the kiddos seemed to have a good time and I had a good time hanging in the foyer with friends from work.

I told you about the counseling position situation. I have applied for 3 other positions but not even an interview has resulted. I was told about an internship available for next year and was asked for a resume. Then the next day I was told never mind, it had been promised to someone else.

Then Sat. at prom, someone told me that one of our remaining counselors had accepted a position at a different school. I also found out that no one was supposed to tell and everyone was relieved when I found out because they wanted me to know but couldn't tell. Then today I found out that our other counselor is also going to another school, leaving us with 2 openings. This is also something no one was supposed to know yet.

So here is the run down:

  • I need an internship, none are available
  • Have an interview, don't get the job
  • Asked for a resume, then told never mind
  • My cat died leaving me with 4 babies to hand feed
  • I am having to get up in the night and I am tired
  • I have major homework and no time
  • Brandi has 3 soccer games this week
  • Matthew leaves next week NEXT WEEK!
  • I need to get my house clean before Sunday so people can come over
  • About 20 other things I don't want to blog about
  • Did I mention I am tired?
  • And feeling overwhelmed?

So when I was talking to the intern principal, out of nowhere I just started crying. I was really embarrassed, but lucky for me she gets it and also lucky I was not in an interview or a meeting, just a friendly chat.

So, my dear friends, can I ask a huge, HUGE favor of you? If you believe in prayer and that God hears and answers our prayer, could you pray for me to get a counseling job for next year? and if you want to be even more specific, how about asking for one of the ones at my school.

Consider a prayer offered...more than once.

And can I help you with anything for Sunday? I'd be happy to drop off a bunch of cookies or something...

You'll probably just tell me no so maybe I'll just do it.

Noelle, who am I to deny you the blessings of giving me service?

If I have learned anything in the last 46 years it is this- When someone offers to give you service, you let them. Especially when you feel as overwhelmed as I feel right now.

So honored to pray for you. I am also putting your name on the Mesa Temple prayer roll when I go this afternoon. Wish I could be there for your special Sunday, to hear Matthew speak and to help you. Sending love your way.

Cookies coming your way...sometime Friday night or Saturday morning...

Oh, man. I just read this. Wish I'd known. However, prayers are never too late. Sending them your way.
