Monday Morning on a Gray February Day

Late last night I returned to South Bend with the Women's Liturgical Choir (with which I still sing since I'm still in South Bend) from our annual February tour. This year took us to my home - the Baltimore/DC area. -A very exciting location, but the tour was unfortunately poorly planned. Nevertheless, I was able to spend some great time with my family.

Now I'm back in the office (the only one with internet) waiting for my first client of the day to come in.

I'm really beginning to feel burnt out by work. I'm tiring of the never-ending stream of brokenness, hurt, heartache, thoughtlessness, selfishness, lack of respect, lack of understanding, and so on with a inexhaustible list of pain and godlessness.

The weather doesn't help.

And above all, my own personal hopes and dreams are being confronted - and I don't like that.

The phone is ringing ...


...a call from another counselor...one of my clients, who was already on the run from an abusive boyfriend, called to let us know he found her and she has to move elsewhere...





Please keep me and a very special intention in your prayers. Thank you.
