The next day.

Thank you all for the encouraging comments on yesterday's blog. I was reminded of several things.

1) A person should always use the "f" word spartanly. That way when you do use it, everyone knows that you are boiling mad. There is never any doubt about your anger level. If you use it all of the time, you could be slightly mad to over the top, ready to punch your fist through a wall. For the record, I was ready to put my foot down a laptop and smash a mouse into next month. However, I wrote some really hot words and shook my fist at the sky and left it there.

2) Not everyone is good at every thing. I knew that already. I thought it would be a good idea for me to learn how to build this website so that I could make changes down the line. I don't want to be the person making changes to the website down the line. I want someone else to design it. I want them to show me how to input the doctor information. I want them to show me how to move from tab to tab. I want them to show me how to input information and I want their telephone number if it is any more complicated than that. You want to know why? Because when this website takes off, I am going to be the person out there fundraising for big money, meeting major players, and building houses. I won't have time to be dinking around with website code. I am not good at that. I will never be good at that. I am a PEOPLE person. I am not a computer person. People have skills. God wants you to work the stuff you are good at and hire other people to work the stuff they are good at. It is called teamwork.

3) I have to trust that the person who is going to help me build this site is going to do it not just because they want the big money, but because they are committed to the idea. In the end, the money will come to them. That is the way it always works. You do something for the greater good and the greater good turns around and gives it back to you ten times over. In fact, I have known from the beginning of this project (that would be 2008 when it was just an idea) that many people would be involved in this thing. Some of you are reading this blog. You can accept the calling or not. However, you wouldn't be hearing anything if God weren't whispering in your ear. For those of you who don't believe in God... I guess all I have for you is this: "Be the change you wish to see in the world." ~Gandhi Yeah, didn't come from God or the Bible. Just a man. One who changed the world. Think about that for a while.

4) I am amending yesterday's statement. I hate working on that site like God hates sin. I took the "f" word out. I am not enraged anymore. I suppose that is because I haven't visited that site today. Been in bed all today with a migraine from yesterday's visit. I learned my lesson. What is the definition of stupidity? Doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. So... now I am sitting back and waiting. Not my strong suit. So, let's see how long this lasts...


  1. Robin: You are such a wonderful soul, and I am very happy you have a good grip on things once again. Be careful, my friend. One moment of patience may ward off great disaster. One moment of impatience may ruin a whole life.

  2. Love that proverb. I have to save that one. Robin, I'm glad you took the day off, you needed it. Patience dear...patience.

  3. Computers -- we can't live with 'em, we can't live without 'em. Feeling your pain, glad to know you've at least been able to take a deep breath and that I don't need to raise bail money for you after hearing that you've gone on a rampage ....

  4. Hey girl,

    You are one of the least limited and most capable people I've ever met - but it's good to delegate. I have learned that lesson time and time again and since you and I are so alike, I'm not surprised. But you have to remember, as I try to every day, that we can't be everywhere all the time and do everything.

    That's God's job. ;)

  5. Finally! Someone who doesn't act like their blog came this way:) Relatively new and getting pissed too!

  6. Oh. I hope I was one of the encouraging comments? I take back using the 'P' word. :)
