Smiley With Flower


I have had a relatively drama-free, yet extra eventful few days. It seems lately that I am trying to squeeze a whole lot into a little amount of time. I'm one of those people who is not content unless I have almost no time to myself. I bore very easily. So, on the one hand, it's really good that I have a lot to do. Yet, on the other hand, I know it has adverse effects on my health. Lately, I have been dragging through everything and just trying to stay awake so I don't miss my life.

I am very grateful for the opportunities God is bestowing upon me. My faith grows with each new venture and each opened door. I'm beginning to see things from a new perspective and it is really cool.

Like just yesterday, I realized that every time I leave work in a funk, I look up in the sky and see something unusually beautiful. I left work and the sky was that purplish-red color that it is at sunset, but it was after sunset. The thing that made it truly spectacular was the moonlight occasionally broke through the clouds and made the prettiest deep blue. It was extraordinary.
And I felt like God was drawing on the clouds just for me.

I guess I'm learning to appreciate the things I have more and worry less about the things I don't. That feels good.

I'm going out with nuttie and probably msjellybean tonight. I am very excited. Although I have a busy weekend (the guys are comng down tomorrow! Yay!), I am determined to leave them to their own devices for just a little while so I can meditate or nap or something.

I am so happy the work week is almost over. Here's to rest and fun!!!
