It’s Five Minute Friday (eve), and I missed the party (#fmfparty) on Twitter tonight, but I looked forward all day to writing tonight with my #fmfparty friends. It’s like a flash mob of sorts, where a bunch of us free-write for five minutes on a one word prompt and we gather together at Kate Motaung’s blog to share and encourage. Why not join the fun? You’re always welcome to write your five minutes in the comments section below if you don’t have a blog.
This week’s word:
Oh, I couldn’t be more excited for tomorrow.
I was given a very unfamiliar task of writing a grant at work, and I’ve been buried in papers, and words, and stats, and requirements for the last couple of weeks. Never writing a grant before, I really had no idea what I was doing.
But God did.
My friends closest to me were praying, and you better believe I was taking each step holding God’s hand. Friends encouraged me, believed in me, and checked in on me. And my husband. My goodness he’s a good man. I don’t know what I would have done without his love and continued support through these hard days.
Well, we hit the “submit” button today. And it’s done!! I wanted to shout it from the rooftops!!
Thank you, God! He gets the glory, because He’s the one who made it happen.
I look forward to tomorrow. No more hours parked in front of my laptop. No more weight on my shoulders. The stress of being unsure will be a memory. The nights of rewriting in my sleep will be over. And I will get to rest (a little). I’m planning our annual recognition event for the end of the month, but compared to writing a grant, this will be a piece of cake.
And maybe, just maybe, tomorrow I’ll stop by my favorite store and celebrate with the purchase of a new skirt.
I’m excited for tomorrow.
Thank you for allowing me to share this part of my life with you, and for celebrating this HUGE accomplishment with me!
