On the wait list, that is.
It looks like discussions and guesses regarding where we'll land on our agency's wait list each month will be the topic of many discussions. I'm going to try hard not to wish our live's away waiting for the monthly update.
As Jeff and I were driving to Indianapolis on Friday, we were discussing this very thing. Jeff posed the question to me, "if the over/under was 20, would you go for OVER or UNDER". (Remember, we were 29 in January).
I never knew that I was a pessimist. I think "realist" is a better term but I quickly went for the OVER. After some brewing over in his head, Jeff agreed with me. (Not before blaming me for emptying his half-full cup:).
Seriously, within 5-10 minutes of having this discussion, I glanced at my phone to see that I had a "Wait List Update" email.
Baby steps, people.
Would we like to be a higher number? Well, sure, if I had opened the email and read that we'd moved to 15 or 10 or 7; of COURSE, we would have been THRILLED. But we are right where God has us and wants us to be and, honestly, there's no better place to be.
