I often wonder what it would be like to sit face to face with each of you sweet people individually.
If we did happen to get together, I'd bet that it would be for lunch. Mostly because I love lunch, but also because it seems like lately that's the only free moment I can spare. We'd probably come to my quiet little house and sit around my white kitchen table.
I'd start by telling you how high school has been so incredibly draining. I'd tell you about the promise that I made to myself to finish the school year strong after spring break. On that note I'd probably jump for joy with the realization that today is the last day before break-oh Joy!
I'd tell you that I am nervous and excited for my first advocacy conference tomorrow. I am so excited to be advocating at a conference geared around my beliefs. (more to come tomorrow night)
I'd tell you how I fear tomorrow because I know that a learning experience is inevitable.
I'd laugh because you probably wouldn't understand why I am afraid of learning new things.
I'd laugh also, because I don't really know the answer. I just am.
I'd share with you how much effort I put into this week. Pushing for the bliss of next week.
I'd let you in on a little secret that I can see such good times on the horizon.
You'd probably be excited to know that I get my driver's permit Monday morning and I'd tell you how I have been studying to pass the test. Constantly.
I'd tell you about next Tuesday morning and about how I am finally going home to see my family.
Michigan is so far away from California and about how the strength of love verses the inevitable struggles of distance have tested my family's will. I'd tell you that your prayers and love worked for my baby girl cousin who was born into the ICU. I am so so blessed to report that Gabriella Jo is home and well. Tuesday I will see her face to face.
Last night I cried thinking about getting to hold her little self.
I'd tell you that I am equally excited to see her big sister and beautiful family
I love those people.
Thinking about seeing them brings me to tears.
What makes you happy to tears? What struggles have you faced lately?
