When You've Had One of Those Weeks . . .


When you've had one of those weeks -

Yeah, one of those -

When you haven't really slept,

And you've had so much to do,

And haven't really gotten much of it done . . .

And you finally have a minute to just breathe?

To eat some good food with your girlfriends,

Look at fancy dresses you're never going to buy,

Have delicious, flavorful gelato,

Act in a film to help a friend,

Make fun of plot holes,

Laugh at your slightly goofy friend being way too serious,

Laugh -

Laugh like you haven't laughed in weeks.

It's amazing how much joy is found in relationship.

It probably works that way because we were made for relationship.

Thank You, God, for times like these.

Sorry I didn't have time to post last week.

Still a busy couple of weeks,

Working on some big papers and projects.

Sincere apologies that I haven't had time to visit you

And read

And breathe

And laugh silly

And be with you in this world -

Even if only for a moment?

Soon, I hope.

(Sylvia's already made it to - past - 10,000!  So amazing to think of who He is like this!)
