One of two things will happen. Either they will refuse it (I can hardly see anyone in this economy turn down any payment) or they will quietly accept it and I can keep doing it. If I had done this back then, half the balance would already be gone.
Also, I read some great words of wisdom to help me right now, from some wise folks. A dear friend emails regularly with updates on her family and its issues and its joys. She always includes a quote, some trivia, and a few other tidbits. These are the quotes which hit home when I opened her email today:
Those who do not know how to weep with their whole heart don't know how to laugh either. - Golda Meir
Life is ten percent what happens to you and ninety percent how you respond to it. - Lou Holtz
Dear God, thank you for hearing the prayers of my friends and clearing my mind so I could begin to take some action with your help; bless these people as only you know best.
