MRI and Chaplaincy

Really really pleased as the appointment for my MRI came through today. I was just starting to worry that it wasn't going to arrive, but it has and fortunately it's not that long a wait and also not when I am away either. Great news anyway as was getting a bit frustrated with not knowing when it was going to be. So all being well we may be back on with the ttc in September.

As for the chaplaincy meeting I just feel this is really something I want to do and something I feel really good about. I was the youngest there by at least half, but in a way I think that my age is a good thing as it's someone different to relate to and a different perspective. So come September I'm going to hand in my notice at my part time job (I presume no-one from there is reading this, that would be an impressive coincidence), to make time for the chaplaincy stuff. I may miss the money, but it's worth it for something that feels like it's what I'm meant to be doing right now.

The person preaching at church yesterday was saying how so many things that happen to you and that you do are all training and preparation for what you are ultimately meant to do. Even if you don't know it at the time the things you learn and experience are possibly shaping you for things you are going to do in the future. I know for me personally that is true, even looking back to my school work placements, one of which was in a nursery, which helped me get my jobs in child care, and one of which was working on a hospital ward for a week. Although what I'm doing now is nothing like what I imagined then that I would be doing, those experiences are a real bonus and help with what I'm doing and what I want to do now.

Right I shall stop for now, enough musings for the day, but a final comment, all of you have a purpose, even if you can't see it right now. There that's my deep comment of the day, but remember it.

Thank you, I really appreciate it. Hopefully it will be good and will leave me a bit more fulfilled and will be a positive thing for others and me.
