Now and There

I sat in on my first "work meeting" today. I feel adult-like.

Well, I really didn't say anything, and half the people in the room were other students who were planning the event. But it still counts, right? I mean, it was an Event and Guest Services meeting. Ok, I don't think it was really too important since it was only about one conference coming up and it was on campus. I'll just document it anyways, so that some day I can say I remember my first almost-business-meeting! Ha.

Apart from that, I've been thinking about home today. Mom is sick with the flu at home, and Dad is gone a few days, so she's just home with Kaylee. I wish I could bake her muffins and help her find good movies on Netflix. I would take Kaylee out on walks so that the little doggy didn't get restless and energetic at the end of the day. Which, I guess, that energy actually makes Mom laugh, so maybe I'd keep it that way. Laughter is good for the soul, especially when you're not feeling well.

I was looking through photos today from a youth retreat that BMA students put on for their peers. I had been searching for a couple of specific photos that might be of help to someone, but instead I got lost in the memories. The faces in those photos are ones I used to live day-to-day life with. Moving to another continent is a strange thing, isn't it? It's amazing to me that now my days are filled with faces at Moody - ones I never knew 2 years ago at that youth retreat.

Life is rich. Relationships are what tie us to places. It's not always easy, but it's beautiful watching stories unfold.

All I'm saying is that time moves forward here (very quickly, actually). Yet I'm still connected to home too. I care about both places, and all faces.
