We may not always see them but you know they are always there...good friends are like that.
God seems to know when we need a boost and today I had two friends do simple little acts of kindness that spoke to my heart louder than the roar of a lion. God watches over us and even brings others into our lives to help us in times of need.
Work has been challenging to say the least lately, its not the patients, or the general staff but there are some people in positions of elevation that just seem to love to ridicule, demean, and make life a little miserable. I'm not just speaking for myself but for most of the licensed staff as well. But for some reason I seem to be the target person, and if it spares others the same treatment so be it, I have broad shoulders and I know who I really work for.
Today after yet another little "confrontation" a friend walked in the door, smiled at me and handed me several little packets of Starbucks individual packets of instant coffee, (she and I share a love for good strong coffee). No explanation, no long conversation, "just these are for you and walked back out". A touch from God....
Then tonite a short phone call from yet another friend just letting me know she is praying for me and others at the Nursing Home because she understands how difficult it can be sometimes, she has experienced it first hand. Another timely touch from God...
The hand of God has touched my heart today to let me know He is watching over me and others.
