I am ashamed to admit that I made no delivery to the cancer center today. I wanted to. I even had the prayer shawls washed and dried. I didn't have as many items ready, and I was planning on visiting a friend in the hospital after my appointment. I spent the day washing and drying items, homeschooling my kids, and working on a special prayer shawl for my friend. Well, her shawl took longer than expected to complete, so I was down to only a few minutes left to brush my teeth and put on my shoes before embarking on my hour-long journey to the doctor. I had a choice to make. I chose to let it go. I could still visit my friend and make it to my appointment, albeit with empty hands. It was a hard decision and forced me to swallow my pride. I don't want to fail. I know that I can deliver the prayer shawls next time around, but it still makes me feel like I didn't do my best. I don't want to be afraid to try and fail, though. After all, it's better than not trying at all.
and this is where I document various things about my prayer shawl ministry.
