Two happies marked this past week: a book and the start of my internship.
The book I'm reading (well, one of the books I'm reading) is Kissing Fish. I ordered it online awhile back but didn't find the right time to read it. I'm enjoying so much. Not sure if that has ever happened to you, but it happens to me all the time: events happen in such a synchronized way in (my) life, it makes me realize/see/meet the Love behind all of it.
I can't remember if I found my church before, or after, I bought the book, but it just so happens that they are related (without me knowing beforehand.)
As they say, there are no coincidences. This is serendipity at its best!
I also started my internship and so far so good. Actually, I really like it. The people I work with are all so nice. It's a very busy semester but lots of fun too. I've said it before, but I'll say it again, I feel very grateful for having "a second chance" of going back to school at this point in my life. Again, serendipity at its best! ;)
Crappies for this week: Well, as you know if you've been reading for awhile, I have a teenage son. He's almost 15. A great kid, much taller than me with blond hair and blue eyes; looks nothing like me. But he inherited my sensitivity. And yesterday, well, he and his gf broke up. Have you ever experienced seeing your child heartbroken and there's absolutely nothing you can do? It's awful. They met 2 years ago at summer camp, were friends for while and then last year (when the hormones kicked in I guess) things changed. They started hanging out more and more and have been dating since last summer. I know, I know, he's a kid, but the first heartbreak is the worst. I remember mine and it was terrible.
And, even though he's experiencing normal human suffering, I still see him as a baby and want to protect him.
