I got home after work yesterday to be greeted to the sight of a happy Kiddo, who is home for the Easter holidays. She asked if I saw an email she sent not long before I got home. It was a piece of good news, in the form of an ANU scholarship. It is meant to cover lodging for a year, and it is good for 4 years. It is given to all PhB students, which isnt a large group.
It’s the first time we got money from the government, after paying out truckloads of dough in taxes all these years. We’re very grateful none the less.
I also start in my new role at Super Partners in a few weeks and will have to plan my routines and priorities again.
The waiting to hear back scenario played out again yesterday and toward the end of the day I sort of had a mini meltdown. Scruffy and I had what was probably a 2.5 hour walk and he certainly went to parts of Blackburn he had never been to before.
By the time I got home, Tress had left a note saying she had to be in church for a meeting. She was being her usual quiet yet clearly supportive self.
It can be very hard trying to expect a tangible engagement from God. It is probably what I dont really want in any event but sometimes the external and tangible assurance would have helped.
Anyway, the wait continues
(it has now been 24 hours since the last meeting)
