sometimes i am scared of emotions because i know they hurt sometimes.
i can't believe a bunch of kids woke up yesterday ate breakfast went to school to learn and were murdered.
i can't believe a bunch of kids woke up yesterday, ate breakfast, stood outside and lined up for school and were stabbed.
i can't believe that once people are gone...all you have left are memories and paper.
that's all you get.
i'm so thankful for friendship and family.
I'm thankful to be loved so deeply by the Lord. I'm thankful for the song "mango tree" by angus & julia stone
i'm thankful for a day of sleeping in.
allowing emotions to surface.
going home in six days.
knowing beautiful people and being loved by family...
getting to hug a stranger today & hopefully make them feel loved.
i just want to love better.
i'm disappointed in myself, i guess. for not always doing my best.
i'm thankful for people who saw me when i was hurting badly and didn't even know it myself. because of those people, i'm alive today.
i'm thankful for iron + wine pandora station, stress relief candles, clean water to drink, and having peace.
i'm thankful for laughter. i'm thankful for my godson, who just found out i'm his godmother (a few days ago) and was excited. that everytime i talk with him he asks me where my dinosaur is....his memory. his laughter, silliness.
i'm thankful for my smallest friends and all they've taught me throughout the years.
i'm thankful for people i've met and have yet to meet.
that i can choose to love.
