My mind really is not in a place to explore, to explain. I am weary and forlorn from early mornings and late nights and a lack of an impressive vocabulary lately. So, I just have some little things I would like to share.

I am going to be nineteen soon (7 days). I imagine the only change would be feeling more secure in my eighteen-ness.

Ryan's mom told me through some tears the other day that he may just cherish our cuddling and watching TV more than any other activity because he used to do the same with his beloved grandmother before she died. We cuddle a lot more now.

I am starting to delve deeper into the popular question of "What am I going to do for the rest of my life?" Some things jumping out to me lately have been family ministry, discipleship, volunteer coordinator, application helper, creator of gifts, dog lover, part-time lover, and full-time friend. Nothing that would pay me well or get me a million-dollar home (however, I still have a lot of thinking to do on just how important that is anymore).

I hope everybody is enjoying their summer / breaks/ sun!

think about it

Have you ever met someone who seemed so kind and gentle to you and to others, for absolutely no damn reason at all? These people exist, and you might even be that person to someone: I mean, they might not be that way to everyone, but if you think about it, I believe (and dearly hope) that everyone has at least one person like that in their life. Because even if they are only a minuscule part of it, they are some of the most beautiful people and provide some of the most precious, human experiences you can have in your life.

Reflecting on some of these kinds of people in my life (I have had a number I am very grateful for), I remembered a boy from my high school whose moment I captured in this post. You really do not know how much you can affect people with the smallest acts of kindness (or maybe I am just the only weirdo who pays attention to these things, but I highly doubt it is that).

There is more to this thought, but that is all for tonight.
