Day 271 - I Found Amazing
I've been in an airport or plane since 10:00 AM. That's roughly 6 hours now. At the moment I'm cursing at 3,000 feet somewhere over Virginia. I've had surprisingly little time to think.
It's been an amazing 6 days but not in the way I expected when I left home. When I left home I thought I knew exactly how God was going to feed my soul. After all, I was going to Bible Camp right?
While the speaker was great and she hammered the nail and introduced me to Mary Everybody, she is not the one who made it so amazing.
I found amazing in the courage of my Aunties pain. I found it in Deb's quiet concern of her mother's harm. I found amazing in Nancy's concern for my other's nerves in the face of a brain bruise. I found it in Georgia's tears and her love of Connecticut.
I found amazing in my mom's "I want to try but I don't know how." And in her hand squeezes. 8 squeezes spelling out "I L O V E Y O U" I found amazing in bookends. Me the eldest, him the youngest. I found amazing in just how much he looks like him.
I found amazing in 2 airports, 4 planes, 6 days, 3 aunties, 12 cousins and yeah, Bible Camp too.
Today I'm grateful for:
texts from Georgia
mom home safe
my man tonight. Lord how I've missed him
2 year plans.
the end of paper and pen lists. My handwriting is atrocious and my hand is cramping. Boy I write a lot!
calling "Jump Seat!"
my day w/ Georgia. Yay, it's worth a repeat.
my 3 ghost guest writers who have not missed a beat, saved the day and showed me up. You guys rock. Thank you!
