I’m home alone – my training incumbent is on sabbatical. One of the things I’m trying to do is to write down a summary of my weeks so that he knows what I’ve been up to! And I’ve decided to do it by blog. Hope you don’t mind!
This week has been an emotional one. There has been a confusion over church booking in March (hours of phone calls and a certain amount of blood and sweat!), a very sad funeral for a family friend (tears), and the news that I need hearing aids. I’m amazed at how many people have made jokes about my hearing loss. I’m know I have in the past; justice falls upon me for my previous insensitivity.
According to my Myers Briggs guru, ENTJs don’t like to appear incompetent. Tell me about it. My failing hearing, when added to a couple of asthma attacks and a tummy bug this week make me feel very incompetent (yes, some of you will rightly argue that this is not incompetence, but it sure feels like it when I have to say “What?” again).
Tomorrow starts a new week, one in which I define myself as someone with hearing problems. May God give me the grace to be vulnerable.
