It's strange how God works mysteriously in your life, even when you least expect it. But when such a gift just drops at your lap, you can't help but just be so, so thankful...
As most of you know, I had this major 3500 word assignment. Even though it's due next wednesday, I knew that I had to finish, by hook or by crook, by the end of this week. Because next week I have another assignment coming up, and I definitely can't manage with 2 simultaneously. So from monday to wednesday, I've been sitting on the chair in front of the comp, letting my butt grow big, as I research intensively online, read all the books I borrowed from the library, trying to make sense of the different information and the most difficult part of all, trying to piece all of them together to form a coherent essay. It is tough work. I told myself I had to finish by wednesday, but wednesday came and went, and it was still uncompleted. Sigh. Thursday was supposed to be my meeting with my mentee, so I would usually go down to the school in the afternoon to visit her. In that sense, time would have been lost. But to my surprise, early this morning, she called me to say that she was not well, and had to meet next week instead. On one hand I was concerned about her illness, yet on the other, it really felt like my time had suddenly expanded! I mean, all this while I was panicking whether I can finish my assignment in time, when an unexpected call can do so much wonders for me! And yeah, through another day of researching and plouging through the net, I finally came through. I finally finished my assignment.
It may seem like a small thing, but somehow it's just such an unexpected and lovely surprise that you can't help but feel that someone out there is actually monitoring and controlling your life. Someone knows your needs, and someone actually does provide for you, in ways you least expect.
Never forget to continually thank that special someone.
