first for everything
There is a first for everything and today I ate my first peanut butter and jelly sandwich since I was 3 years old. It was simply delicious. Now I know what I've been missing all these years!
Today was a Tuesday with no school. Being the good student I am, I woke up somewhat early to get my homework done. I had a relaxing morning doing what I pleased. I found a nice spot on the living room floor where a beam of sun light was shining and I decided that would be a lovely place to read my bible. Feeling the warmth of the light I opened to Ecclesiastes 3. This verse stuck out to me: He has made everything beautiful in it's name. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men, yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end. 3:11. I love how it paints a picture of all the incredible things God has done. It isn't possible to know everything he did or said but just thinking about all of the people he's healed and has yet to save... it's amazing. No, He's amazing.
The morning kept going and it was time for my Tribe conference. I met my dad at school and had a quick but very nice meeting with Mr. Ard. It's always good to have teachers call you a very confident and competent young lady and a student that makes their job worth while ;) Karli and I then did a little thrift shopping. Jean shorts for 6 buckaroos. Can't really beat that. In the middle of walking through Barnes & Noble I realized my pinky finger was bleeding, haha. I even managed to get blood on my shirt which was gross. Karli gave me a pickle band-aid and all was well again. I grabbed an Orange Julius and we were off to watch Laurel's tennis match. She and Elinor played great and won their match! It was such a lovely afternoon soaking up the sun while watching my best friend dominate in her little green t. I even made her a sign. I'm such a dedicated fan!
I talked to my sister on the phone for a few minutes, took a walk with my mom, had a little nap, ate some tortellini and watched American Idol before calling it bed time. Guess what? Spring break in 3 days!
