I haven’t written in a while. A lot has happened. Mattress rehearsals are going great. It is so much more work than I thought though. I obviously didn’t know what I was getting myself into.
I didn’t hear one bit of honesty today in my religion class. So I called Pastor Steve, but he wasn’t in, so I talked to Kathy, the secretary. She encouraged me a lot. She later hooked me up with Shurby. He prayed for me. I cried. I miss their instruction so much.
Charlie took me down to Asheville this afternoon. It was only a couple hours away. We went to a Christian bookstore and I bought the new Amy Grant tape. I like it. We went out to eat then came back here and went to the high school football game. There I met a woman I actually met my first day up here when I went to Heaton Christian Church with my mom, Sharon is her name. She has three daughters. Two are in high school. One was a cheerleader there at the football game. We went over to their house afterwards and talked until midnight.
Last night Charlie and I talked until one in the morning. He is the only person I can talk to here.
Tomorrow morning I am helping clean a house with FCA. I hope it will be fun.
Cheris is supposed to cut my hair tomorrow, or I guess technically today.
By the way, the Christy up here spells her name Kristi. Oops.
This weekend I hope to write letters to a lot of people. That will be hard. It’s been two long weeks since I said goodbye. And as each day passes I realize that I really did say goodbye.
My place is here now.
