This wonderful woman of God kept me going this week. She did my laundry, cooked, listened and consoled. And listen to this: She has her own busy (though flexible) schedule. She often comes in on Thursday mornings to do a devotion with my class. This week, since Thursday I was fighting to stay in control of my emotions all day, she came in early and stayed until 11:00, just watching me teach and then taking my recess duty for me (while I pulled myself together).
Today, I had to stay after school and give my room a good cleaning. I never really even got to organize when I started teaching because school started right away, and I was always teaching or planning. So, at 5:00, Heather came and just cleaned my room and put up posters for two hours while I cleaned my desk and got ready for next week. Her PRESENCE more than anything else has been a huge comfort to me. I also can't believe that she just completed changed her plans to be with me when I most needed it.
I'm so glad that I get to serve in Bolivia with my big sister this year.
A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for a time of adversity.
