Thankful Things

  • Air conditioning.
  • Rehearsals with my fave people. Honestly, I don’t know what I’m going to do when the show is finally over in June (probably just sleep). I miss the cast already.
  • I know I said this last time but it’s so nice to be back in rehearsal. I miss performing so much.
  • My dream of living in an old one bedroom with bricks and hardwood is close! I found a place for July!
  • My hair looks good.
  • I made a good supper for my dad and I tonight with corn-on-the-cob, maple ham and salad.
  • I have zero boy problems.
  • The church I’ve been attending has one of my favourite verses, Micah 6:8 “…do justice, love kindness and walk humbly with the Lord” written on their vans. After the service, people stand outside and smoke. They hug me and say, “God bless you.” Or they wave from the back of their tailgates. I know it sounds weird to call that a blessing but it made me feel so at home. I don’t know why but I appreciate it a lot.
  • This will sound silly and weird to people who don’t attend church but I haven’t had communion for a while and I really, really missed it. All the churches I went to these past couple months,  I either missed the communion part because I was late or they didn’t have gluten-free options so I couldn’t partake . Communion makes me feel connected to the community and reminds me to forgive. It’s one of the things that makes me feel closest to Jesus. I feel disjointed without it. Next to singing, it’s my favorite part. Today I bought rice crackers and asked if I could put them in the plate before the service. The church said yes. I got to join in communion today and it was the best. It probably looked weird to see the new girl at church cry but it was a good cry. The happy kind.
  • I have a new phone. No more flip phone. I mean, I still have the flip phone but mostly just use the new one.
  • Been getting lots of work to keep me busy.
  • God has been so gentle with me these last couple months. I mean, he’s always gracious but I see how intentional he’s been about it… I needed time to heal. It was a tough year (or two). I don’t think I’m all the way there but I’m stronger than I was and I don’t think I can take any credit for it… God has been so good to me.
  • Things have been going well with my dad. He’s one of my favourite people. Tonight we watched a bad action flick on YouTube. He provided colour commentary the whole time (which was probably just funny because we get each other’s sense of humor but I still loved spending time with him).

Bedtime. Night, night!
