Today was a learning day.
I learned that patience is something I am learning. Every day.
I learned that life is so complex and so simple, all at the same time.
I learned that we are all here to help each other out.
and I learned that we are given the hardest challenges when we most need them.
Today I remembered all the people who have helped me.
I hope you know who you are.
Today I smashed two cockroaches with my journal. yum.
I thought a lot about poverty.
Today I listened to Nickel Creek and remembered why I love them. Highly recommend.
Today I felt gratitude to my God.
And I wished that everyone felt His love, as I do.
I learned that here on Earth, we are refined.
and sometimes it's by fire.
Today I edited an 18 page report. it was hard.
I read Little Princes by Conor Grennan. also highly recommended.
and I thought about my 7th & 8th grade core teachers. Wherever you are, thank you for all you did for me. Having you as a teacher made junior high bearable (ah so awkward...).
Today I wrote a talk for church.
and today I sent good vibes to you! I hope you are so happy!
If you're not, go drink a dr. pepper, put on some good beats, and have a little dance party.
Invite some friends, if you're feeling real adventurous (woot woot).
And before you go to bed, say thank you. To your mom for putting up with you, your roommate for living with you, your brother for keeping you tough, your dog for always thinking you are awesome, or your God for blessing you. I promise it'll make you feel better.
Then please enjoy your thick mattress, soft pillow, and lack of cockroaches for me.
(Remember me? I'm the crazy girl living 7,851 miles away.)
Hi mom. Hi dad. Thanks for reading to the end...
