Day 1160: Intense

That's the best word I have for today.  It just was.  Intense.

And I just finished writing about it in my journal.  And it took a really long time.  So, I'm not really going to go into detail here.  Just to sum up:

The day started out well enough, but the morning got a little stressful, leaving me feeling disappointed and afraid of what might be coming.  And then I checked my email, which included an inspired email from someone I love.  And it was exactly what I needed to be learn and be reminded of.

And then we headed to the gym which involved a really great conversation with a friend, a long(ish) run--during which I fought the instinct to just push through the pain, but instead decided to take care of myself and turned around.  And I had a great thought train going on and realized all kinds of important things.

Then some things didn't go quite my way, but I followed what I knew I needed to do and did something hard.  And things went better.

And then I hopefully was able to return the favor of this morning and help another person that I love who is also struggling.

And after violin lessons, I put Darling A to bed just in time to head out shopping with a friend to try and give her some help in choosing a family photo outfit.  That was most unsuccessful, but we had a good time anyway.

And then a quick stop in at the girl's craft night going on at another friends'.  It was fun to chat and catch up with more of my sweet friends.

And then, I shared all of my day with HH.  And appreciated his willingness to support me in my new endeavor to develop and strengthen my friendships.

I think you're one of the most awesomest people I know. Just in case you didn't already know that. I love you!
