I have to thank you for your prayers! Would you believe that just before supper tonight, the allergy specialist phoned...
Right away, she said "I am calling to apologize for my behaviour yesterday. I really don't know what got into me."
I, in turn, apologized (it's just so amazing the relief in your heart and soul when you can make ammends). I explained to her that I don't normally explode like that on people (except for my own kids, for some reason... oh, and occasionally my poor husband) but for some reason I lost it with her yesterday and I, too, apologized for not having found a more loving approach to our dilemma.
She answered "I would have yelled at me, too, if I had been you. In fact, I probably would have done worse. I was out of line and you called me on it. Anyways, I wanted to say that I would really like to work with you and help your son if you would give me a second chance."
We agreed on giving this another try. I thanked her for the apology and told her it meant so much to me. She stated that the whole ordeal wasn't sitting well with her and she needed to do this more for her own peace of mind.
Isn't prayer amazing? And isn't it amazing how readily available forgiveness is when someone truly has a humble heart? Now I just want to go and hug her! I am sure we'll disagree down the road on a few things, but at least we'll have enough respect for each other to know when we can negotiate and when we'll need to just agree to disagree.
I am so relieved at the peace that could be found, I am glad that we can work together again and I am also glad at the deeper connection we'll have in working together. Praise God almighty!
Thank you for your miraculous prayers and for being so "present" to us through them.
