Yesterday I met my friend Deb for lunch at Ruby Tuesdays. We got there at 12ish and stayed until 5 pm just talking. LOL! We be crazy. We laughed, we cried, we shared and we ate. Due to the circumstances of the past year, we hadn’t had a chance to get together for a while; but she’s the type of friend that even if 5 years had passed, we’d pick up right where we left off.
Since life is now different for both of us, we’re going to see each other more often. We’re going to start walking in the evenings together. I’m looking forward to it. Life has really gotten simpler and I am just floating along on this lazy river of life.
All presents are wrapped and under the tree. Grab bag gifts for my son’s party are ready and I just have to make the food. Should be a fun time for those who attend. I really like his friends, even the difficult ones. Great group of young people who share some common interests.
Donated a bunch of things to locale Toys For Tots. Took a big box of stuff to them this afternoon. They needed “teens & tweens” stuff and we provided well for them. I like to donate; because you never know when you might be in the same position.
Making “Spaghetti Grilled Cheese” tonight for dinner. Saw a video on them and since we both LOVE spaghetti sandwiches, why not with gooey melted cheese, too! Can’t wait to try’em.
Book is coming along nicely. I’m burning up the keyboard with tales of sin. I can hardly wait to share it.
Church tonight and next week’s service will be a joint service with our host church for Christmas Eve. Our bible study on Wednesday was our last of the year and we begin again on January 11th. I don’t know if I mentioned it previously; but our study is the book of Job. It has been quite the journey. Even knowing the outcome of his situation and the reason behind it, the struggle could be relatable to today. I remind myself that I have to praise my Lord in the bad times as well as the good because HIS plan is so much more than what I have planned.
I am so over this year and the “bad” things that have happened that I look forward to putting it behind me so that God can deliver me to the next thing he has planned for my life. Patience is easier said than done for me; but I am waiting as patiently as I can.
This week is full of 1/2 days and exams for the boy. No school Friday and two full weeks off of school. One of his friends is taking him out to Christmas shop this week. He’s looking forward to that. His Christmas Concert was Thursday night and he was great. Mom & Dad came up to see it. We then went out to dinner and closed the place. Ha, ha.
We went to the comic book store yesterday and he got a new game and I got some comics. They moved from a tiny little store front to a much larger one and it is so much nicer. Had a video chat with my friend and saw how much her son loved the gift I sent to him. She also shared a video of him “reading” their good night story and how he was singing “row, row, row your boat”. So cute. I love that little boy. He’s 18 months old and I so much miss when my baby was that small. ❤
I’ve gotta run…….
