I can’t believe it. It happened. It has been a year. Fifty-two weeks ago, I started writing My Book of Days.
Yesterday, I went out on the bus ministry at church. Ah, the projects. I often think I don’t have much and that we are poor, but then I see how others live and I understand that I am beyond blessed.
So, Kevin came back from for the weekend last night. I was talking to him about Rebecca and he told me that he liked her. Evidently he met her at cross-country meets earlier in the school year. It didn’t bother me.
Church was wonderful today. I went into children’s church. I wasn’t supposed to, but I had to take someone’s place, which meant I was actually there when Ryan and Cheryl were. They told me that all they want (and what all women want) is romance, attention, and sensitivity. If that is the case, I should be okay when it comes to the finding a wife down the road. I sure hope they know what they’re talking about.
After church, I was talking to Shirley (Veronica’s mom) and she said she was pregnant. They evidently been wanting that to happen for a while. Praise God it did. She was so happy.
I didn’t go home after church. I went with Cheryl, Ryan, Amy, Jill, and Marcus to Mr. Gatti’s. Afterwards, we went to Ryan and Amy’s house. We watched a little bit of Far and Away.
Tomorrow is our Pastor’s birthday, so we had a little fellowship thing after church tonight. It was a nice time. He is 41.
So it’s been a year. Since this is a special occasion, I’m going to look back through my journals and copy here some of my favorite things that I’ve written or quoted:
“These are the best days of my life and I will take them one day at a time.”
“And she is eleven.”
“Is your dad a thief?”
“I’m still laughing, why?”
“If only I knew.”
“I fell straight on my knees, and then on my face.”
“And the plot of my life thickens.”
“Stay a child, while you can be a child.”
“Time is just a fragment of man’s imagination; it doesn’t really exist.”
“Poof! It’s over.”
“Dare to be happy!”
“And being so in love you can hardly eat.”
“Winter Dreams are things you want so bad, but deep down you know you’ll never get them.”
“Maturity is learning what to do with your free will.”
“The party is over and I have no one to talk to.”
“How can I see so far?”
“My ears are starving for some honesty?”
“Man does not live, he just survives.”
“I didn’t pinch her to hurt her.”
“If only the sun would set.”
“Life is simply a collection of greetings and farewells and the love you share in between.”
And now another year has begun…
