Excellent
Not yet exceptional. When the exceptional rating is reached this is highlighted
A portrait of perseverance
"Some Days When" by Brenda Henderson
When I have to explain where you are and why you're not coming back

When people offer help and I reach out but they're not there

When deadlines and bills pile up and I feel overwhelmed by it all

When I feel lonely abandoned and afraid

When all I can do is pull the covers over my my head and cry

When I feel like giving up and no longer have the strength to try

Somehow I go to sleep and wake up again with the strength to face one more day

Some days are better than others . . .

Author Notes
"I lie down and sleep; I wake again, because the Lord sustains me."
(Psalm 3:5) NIV

"They go from strength to strength, every one of them in Zion appeareth before God." (Psalm 84:7)
