- So, this turned out to be a little random and I'm sorry for my poor writing skills.
I visited my old high school today! :) I always feel that I need to look really good(at least I try to look good) when I go back, cause you never know who you'll run into... Well, that was kind of ruined today. Ha! Anna needed me to come pick out our seats for the choir banquet. She text me 10 minutes before I needed to be there and I had just gotten out of the shower. Nice. Lol. So, I hopped in the car and headed for the school, wet hair and all.
I got to sit in on the choir practicing for next Monday's concert. I really miss choir! ( This is becoming a very sentimental visit home. Lol.) I also got to talk to some of my awesome teachers. I can't believe it's been FOUR YEARS! Not much has changed there, well, with the building at least. The kids are a lot more disrespectful than I remember from when I went. Maybe I was just sheltered and naive, I don't know. Anna got to show me all of her art work and the awesome resources she has to create them. I'm proud of her. :) I'm so thankful that she invited me to come and spend some time with her. God is good.
My cousins Melvin and Gloria came to visit this evening. They are two of my favorite people! Grandma had a rough day today and Gloria stopped all conversation and laid hands on her and started praying. I want to be more like this. I'm ashamed that I'm not. My heart always hurts for people and I have such great empathy, but why don't I take the time to stop what I'm doing and pray with them? I need to work on this.
We also reminisced. I really love to hear people talk about my Dad. I like hearing all the good things they have to say, to know that he really was the good godly man I always thought him to be. :) People say they see a lot of him in me, and I really hope that's true.
