Today was an exceptionally good day. SO many things happened that have me still feeling happy...so happy in fact, that I want to share a few of them.
I think a list is in order. Imagine that.
1. Had coffee with my friend, Jamie. We hadn't seen each other since before Christmas and had a lot of catching up to do. Four hours of catching up in fact. It was GOOD and my heart needed that time with her today. Jamie is someone that I'm completely at ease with. She isn't shocked or put off by my honest emotions or by anything I say. I love that about her.
2. Came home and talked with HisGirl on the phone. I heart that girl too. She is wise and funny and it feels like I've known her for years! I could have talked to her for hours and I don't even like talking on the phone.
3. We went to church tonight. First time in over 5 years that I've been on a Wednesday night. The churches we've been a part of in the last several years haven't had Wednesday services, but the church we're going to now DOES. John's goal for our family in 2009 is to get connected in this new church, and so we jumped into tonight's activities with both feet.
Gotta tell you I was hesitant. Church on Wednesday nights is a routine that I have easily worked myself out of. I love evenings at home. I love not feeling rushed to get dinner on the table or homework completed before we rush out the door.
I was surprised by how much I enjoyed tonight. It felt comfortable and familiar and very much like a place we belong. It was a surprise and a blessing! I'm pretty sure that my husband felt the same way.
