And I thought I was finished!

I took some much needed time for R&R. My week of vacation started off rather poorly with the loss of my rescue kitty. Apparently, she went into renal failure on Sunday evening and by the time I got her to the vet, there was nothing to do except say goodbye. I let her go with a very heavy heart and then came back home and cleaned out her things. My other kitty is now getting used to her absence and is being a good companion. On Sunday morning around 8:15, I received an email from the main instructor of the online training I’ve been taking now for over a year and a half stating that I still had the equivalent of one full class missing in items I had not completed to receive the certifications and college credit for all that hard work. I was stunned! I had gone to the school’s student access site day after day after day looking for my final grades and had found nothing for an entire week, then this notice. After a reply and checking, I waited to hear back from the instructor. She replied with the missing information I would need to comply with the requirements in order to fulfill the program. She gave me until Aug. 1 to complete these requirements. I have recovered from the shock and am even making progress towards completion. This time, I am hopeful I will actually be finished. The guidelines I now am following give me a better and clearer path toward the finish line than the ones I had been following. The finish line still looks a long way off but, with hard work and focus, I will be able to reach it. And you can be sure that I look forward to finishing this program so I can get on with my life again. This episode just points out to me that life happens as we plan it! And the plans always seem to pale in comparison to the real thing. The better our guidelines are, the easier it is to reach the goal. Mine had become a bit fuzzy and had lost definition. I am thankful for a set of clear guidelines pointing toward the finish. This applies to my entire life of which this program is only a small part. My wish for you, dear reader, is that all your guidelines will have clarity and give you precisely the direction you need when you start feeling lost. Blessings
