I will not back down! I will not go quietly!

Well, something happened this morning which was a MAJOR downer for me.  In fact, it started over the weekend, and the crowning touch was on my desk this morning when I came in.  “Decision” with a vengeance.

At first, I was devastated.  I have pinned so many of my hopes on what I believed MIGHT happen that it never occurred to me to prepare for what would happen if those hopes were dashed.  Not a pretty sight — an old broad like me weepin’ awae over the loss of something I couldn’t be sure of in the first place.

But I have decided that even though things haven’t gone the way I thought they would, that I am not giving up!  My goal is too precious to let despair stop me from reaching it.  I have the Lord on my side and I still believe that there is a way — I know he doesn’t want his precious child lost, if there is any way, and I still believe He will provide one.  I can’t see it right now, but I know when the time comes, it will be there.

Besides, I have a lot to live up to … 😀  I took this quiz on Facebook …

Janet completed the quiz “Which TOLKIEN character are you?
with the result Arwen.
You never give up hope even in the face of defeat. You love dearly those that are close to you and you would fight for them without fear. You can be a bit rebellious, yet, your heart is noble …
So you see, I CAN’T give up (she said drily).  And I will not back down — I will not go quietly!
