When you’re recovering from surgery, you have to enjoy the small progress you see each day.
I love to read and have lots of time on my hands, but until now, reading has put me right to sleep. This evening, I read for a couple of hours. It felt good to exercise my mind in that way. While I still sleep a lot, I hope more and more to be able to do a little work and the things I enjoy.
I have been going into the office for two hours or so each day, just to look at mail and messages. With mail, I’ve mostly opened it and put it in an ever-growing pile. Today, I answered everything that came in and knocked a few older cards off my to do list.
Again, a small thing, but if I can do that each day, slow and steady will win the race.
I had lunch in the dining hall with our eighth graders. They’ve been taking high school transition classes for three weeks and are finishing up their program. We have some good students going into our high school program and hope this extra time prepares them for going off campus for their studies at Chamberlain High School.
