God's planning is perfect
Hmmm I hope I can explain this without divulging too much info.
My cell phone broke yesterday so I wasn't readily accessible today. I made plans with D, using Michelle's cell phone, so she knew where I'd be today. Around 1 this afternoon Michelle called to tell me the school nurse had called her cell phone (which they've never done before). Liz was sick and needed to be picked up. So I loaded the little ones into the car 2.5 hrs early and headed in the opposite direction to the high school.
We headed home and Liz was feeling better and then antsy. She asked if we could leave to get Michelle early and Liz would take me to lunch at a chinese buffet restaurant. I declined. She then worked me over using Danielle as an adorable tool, capable of bending hardened steel. We got ready, Liz took Danielle out the door and I was heading toward the door with Sean when the phone rang. Liz asked me not to answer it but I saw it was one of the kids and decided to get it.
It ended up that this child desperately needed my help NOW. I told them I was already half way out the door and we'd be there...to hold tight. So now we switch plans and head to where this person is.
Over 1.5hrs later I did something that I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy but needed to be done. Something that probably wouldn't have been done had I not been there. The way things fell into place, I know I was doing what I was meant to do. Even if doing it turned the world upside down and brought me to tears.
Continued prayers for my family and all involved would be fully appreciated.
