Vanessa has brought so much joy to my life, she is someone I can say is one of those forever friends. It can be hard in life to find those special people that you have a solid, lasting friendship with. When the busyness of life catches us in it’s grip it can be easy to let people pass us by without really getting to know them. At times I wish there was more time to just get to build solid relationships with people. If only we could get paid to build relationships.
My Easter jaunt to visit my family and friends was good. It was nice to get away from work. I spent some good time catching up with people. At the same time all the talking with people that happened over the weekend, and the late nights, really took it’s tole on me. I really could have used a day to rest from the weekend. Now tomorrow comes and I get to sort of do it all over again. I’ll be packing up, then Friday I fly out to Michigan. I’m not really nervous about the weekend at this point. I’m excited to see Vanessa again, but I’m a little unsure of how meeting all the family and friends will go. As my good friend Chad put, “just be yourself, and they will like you”, encouraging words, but I’m still analyzing the whole thing in my head.
Well, the clock has ticked away once again. I find myself up way later than I know I should be. LOL, the curse of the night owl for sure. At the very least it has felt good to write, contemplating all that is this life I live. I’m so thankful that this is not all there is. Beyond we have an eternity of living, whether we choose the narrow, albeit hard, road or that smooth sailing wide one there is certainly more than this. I’m thankful that I have a Savior that has paved the way of that narrow road for me, and knows how to get me through it. Amen!
