A Sweet End to a Hard Week...

I will not say this has been an easy or delightful week for me, but I guess many others would say the same. Today, especially, I was feeling extremely down. There were some small reminders today, especially today, that may just be nudging me to push on. 

First, I woke up this morning and went through my daily routine of checking my facebook, email and other networking sites. I am a member of  Professional Leaders of Women & Girls sponsored by Afro Puffs and Ponytails. When I signed in today, I saw the following message:

Every Friday, I will choose an organization for a power-boost to their Face-book page.  More than likely, it will be someone who has been extra active on this network.  The more you add and interact, the more perks I will come up with for your valuable input. Now this is a cue for those of you who do not have a page... get one :-).  It's great for business! 
The organization for this Friday is....drum roll please:

I was so touched that the network would choose my small program to spotlight. 

Later, I saw again, my program highlighted on the Civic Grind website. The developers of Civic Grind have supported me greatly, especially through encouragement. I appreciate their sincere efforts in the community.

Finally, I found out via email that I was being spotlighted by Amazon CARES as the featured February 2011 Activist. =) Not only did they write about Queendom T.E.A. and myself on their blog, but they tweeted about me to their followers yesterday as well. I am very thankful to Manuela Rodrigues, a fellow activist for various causes and who suggested me to the organization. I was very touched to see this!

After all of this, I am preparing myself this morning to meet with a student I taught 4 or 5 years ago... 

All of this occurred after someone told me yesterday, "If it is not working, maybe God is trying to tell you something." I considered it to be true throughout the day and felt almost heartbroken, uncertain of the path ahead. I don't want to disappoint anyone or let anyone down, including myself. But, I have just felt that this is all I have done lately. After these drops of success today, who knows what God is telling me now... It is time to pray.
