Grateful



You know, I'm discontented with a lot of areas of my life right now. My career isn't going where I want it to; I'm shy and flaky and frustrated about dating; I keep waiting for change, striving for it, and it doesn't happen.

But sometimes, like this weekend at Lake Tahoe, I can't help but look at my life and think, this is amazing. I couldn't have made this up: this place, these people, cruiser bikes and grilling on the beach at sunset and poker late into the night and having people around who care one way or the other about me. I can't complain about any of this, or about anything else. This is good.

Okay I just watched Bones, Zach!!??

Your latest blog, it may sound trite but if you have salvation, the fellowship of friends and a place to serve God you have all you will ever need!

Xerxes--

1. I know! I actually really enjoyed the finale a lot--the Agatha Christie "everyone's a suspect!" feel of it, plus Booth in the bathtub--but the Zach thing was sad and I guess not all that well laid out. (Deep in my heart, though? I am almost as pleased that Sweets lived as I am sad that Zach is crazy and murderous.)

2. You are very, very right, and I do have all three of those things, for which I am grateful. (But I still want a new job. BAD.)

Hooray for Booth in the bathtub! With a Beer helmet.

What lovely pictures, I'm sorry your job's not the ticket! Want to come out here and roast in the Florida sun? *hugs*
