To say that my first two weeks of June have been hectic would be an understatement. I spent the first week of June in Ohio with a team from St. Paul’s at the Campus Ministry Leadership Institute. We got to connect with other schools from around the country and created an event that we will be putting on this October. Then this past week was Convocation. Oh, and my sinuses decided to have a party mid Ohio trip and continued through this week. . .
Yesterday I was invited to lunch after Convocation was finished with some pretty awesome people. As I sat there and enjoyed the beautiful day we were having, I got to thinking about my life and where I’m at now. I’m still so in awe when I look back at the past few years of my life, how much I’ve changed, how much I’ve grown etc. Even when life gets hectic, when it’s frustrating and stressful, I am still so blessed to be where I am at. I love Boise. If you asked me if I liked it 3ish years ago I would have told you I wanted to get out of Idaho yesterday. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again… I LOVE MY JOB!
If you find a job you love, you’ll never work a day in your life.
I get to do amazing things with the most amazing people! All those that I have met from different parts of the country and all those that live all over this great state… YOU ALL ARE AMAZING! I am so blessed to know you all! And for some of you, I can’t wait to get to know you more! 🙂
Last night I thought to myself as I was getting ready for bed that I didn’t want to wear jeans for the next three days. I couldn’t wait to sleep in today. Well, God seemed to have other plans. I woke up at 730 due to a stressful dream and was wide awake. (Side note: in my dream I was looking for things and couldn’t find certain objects… So when I woke up and saw it was St. Anthony’s Feast Day I bout died. Haha!) The thought crossed my mind that I could make it to Mass. I decided to just try to get back to sleep, until a friend I had mentioned the dream texted back, “You can go to Mass :)” FINE. I’LL GET UP. YOU WIN. Turns out Mass was amazing and I heard a fantastic homily that I just wanted to scream during! I’m going to miss Fr. Henry. . .
I have had a lovely and much needed day off. After Mass I took a nap, read some Harry Potter #5, watched Catching Fire and now I am in the middle of Shrek! I also made a tuna pasta salad for dinner which, for some odd reason, made me feel really grown up. I think my sinuses have pretty much calmed down. Adoration on Wednesday, along with a chit chat with Fr. Justin may have sped up the draining process. Haha! 🙂
I am thankful for every. single. person. I have EVER met. Those who were in my life, but are no longer not, were put there for a reason. Those who are in my life now…Those who will come into my life in the future…
You are loved.
You are enough.
Don’t forget it. 🙂
