Thankful Thursday

I've really been enjoying the Thankful Thursday thing so far.  It really gives me the opportunity to look at things from a new perspective.  I can get a tad negative sometimes, and it always helps to have a little boost out of the pits.  

This week I am thankful for perseverance.

per·se·ver·ance  [pur-suh-veer-uhns] 

1. steady persistence in a course of action, a purpose, a state, etc., especially in spite of difficulties, obstacles, or discouragement.
2. Theology . continuance in a state of grace to the end, leading to eternal salvation.

I was supposed to have my first day of class for the semester on Monday, but I ended up being too sick to make it there.  I emailed the professor the following day to ask that he send me whatever I needed to be on schedule for the following week.  He responded that unfortunately I had been dropped from the class because I missed the first day.  He said I would need to re-register before proceeding.  

I pondered for some of the day.  I wondered if this was a sign that I shouldn't be enrolled this semester.  I have a second class online that I could easily drop.  I could focus on the million other things I have going on right now.  I finally made the decision, and called the registrars office and re-enrolled in the class.  I'm in it to win if folks.  I can't give up now!
