This week. I do declare.
I seem to have abandoned Quote Thursday some time ago, but here is one that is helping me to contextualize some things right now:
"We must expect reverses, even defeats. They are sent to teach us wisdom and prudence, to call forth greater energies, and to prevent our falling into greater disasters."-General Robert E. Lee
If The General can deal with the downfall of the Confederacy and having to surrender his entire army, I can deal with an art professor who seems bent on my ultimate destruction. I dearly love this quote--it helps me to remember that God's plan can be rocky and painful at times, but we'll never know what we've been spared through our current problems.
Also, I remembered too late that eating cookies in response to distressing circumstances:
a) does not lastingly fix the problem, and
b) makes wearing my corset much less comfortable when I plan to don my ball gown.
