Wow. There was a boy from a high school near mine who just died of cancer today. I’d never heard of him before but some of my friends knew him. And I was looking at his Facebook, watching everybody post things about how sweet and how much of a fighter he was. I started scrolling down his page and was looking at what he had posted before his death. I immediately started tearing up. His posts were so uplifting. You could see his devotion to God and how strong of a person he was. So many people were commending him on having such great faith and being such a strong person. He made me realize so many important things- I sit here and complain about stupid shit all the time and I need to be more grateful with each day. I need to start working on making relationship with God stronger and I need to keep reminding myself how blessed I am. No matter what. May God rest his soul. I am so grateful for inspirational people like him.
This weekend made me so happy having everybody home from college and being able to just effortlessly hang out. This is by far one of the best breaks I’ve ever had and it’s all thanks to my amazing friends and family. I don’t think I’ve ever laughed so hard in my lifetime. Everyone says you don’t stay in touch with your high school friends or whatever but they are the best people I’ve known and I’ll probably be close with them all forever. I don’t know why I’ve had such a hard time clicking with people in college and being around my old friends makes me feel so comfortable. I am so blessed and thankful I have such a good relationship with my extended family and solid group of friends.
I just wish Paige (chocolatesunglasses) was home too :(
