Not as bad as I was expecting.

I cannot believe I made it through this day. I was expecting it to be worse than it was. Of course, I don't know if I want it to be closer to tomorrow, because that will mean I might hear what I don't want to here. I have my own reasoning for wishing the appointment was not this week, other than what I'm going to say now, but I don't feel like sharing it yet.
I sort of doubt my own character on this. If I hear what I don't want to hear, will I be thankful? Will I be brave enough to say "God, I trust you"? Will I be able to say that even though I'm dealing with this, I am thankful this Thanksgiving? I like this quote:

"My Lord, I have never thanked You for my thorn! I have thanked You a thousand times for my roses, but never once for my thorns. Teach me the glory of the Cross and the value of the thorns. Show me that I have climbed to You by the path of pain. Show me that my tears have made my rainbow."
George Mathisen

I want to have courage like that.
In other news, I should probably update about my day which was what I was going to update about in the first place.
Went to lunch which was good. I just did some reading since I didn't notice anyone I know. Forgot to take my meds, so I had to go up to the coffee shop to get something to drink since I hate water fountains and don't actually know or care where one is in the CDC.
WE had an amazing speaker come and talk to us instead of TRW. She talked about community building. I should acgtually paste my nots in here. I will probably do that as a separate entry even though they are short.
She had us give 10 hugs which was fine with me. Then she had us give back rubs. This was less comfortable to me. I don't know why, but especially since coming down here to live, I have had this thing about prolonged being touched. Maybe some of that is because I'm in the city, so I don't like people coming up behind me. Maybe some of that stems from the fact that my foot is touch sensitive, so I have become less comfortable with touch in general.
Anyway, after that, I went to French which went by fast for once.
Then I came back here and chatted with a friend for a while.
Okay, that's it for now.
