So, I met a boy...well, I met a man. I felt like a girl though. A giddy teenage girl who wanted to run home and giggle about it with her girlfriends.
It's not what you think though.
Some of you reading this will not understand why I am making a big deal of it, but those that know me are probably just as excited as I am.
And he is not really where my excitement is.
Okay, I am lying. I am super excited about meeting him.
What made it such a big deal for me was that I met a man ...and I don't feel guilty or uncomfortable!!! No matter what comes of meeting this man - a friendship, more or less, it was a feeling of healing. This meeting was instrumental in me realizing how much I have healed from the affair, the divorce, the loss...I am ready to live my life to its fullest and I feel GREAT about it!!! I never thought I'd get here and I never imagined feeling like this again.
In a journal entry from April 24, 2009 (my first journal entry from my initial separation), I wrote out a prayer...Please open my heart to forgiveness and take away my anger, bitterness and resentment. Lord, guide me to react in ways that glorify you, to speak words that are pleasing to you and to make choices according to your will. Almost 3 years later I have been so blessed with this restoration of my heart. God has truly made beautiful things out of the dust...Listen to the song below :) Oh - and don't bother asking...no details :)
My boys and I went to a baseball field by my parents' house today for a picnic and some wiffle ball. The park has a playground and a skate park. Things seemed a little sketchy when we got there, but no one was near the fields or the playground so we stayed.
While we were there we saw a police SUV pull into the parking lot. After a few minutes I heard a guy shout "HEY!". A car peeled out of the lot and down the hill and the police SUV turned on his sirens and sped after. About 5 minutes later we saw a police helicopter nearby. (I put a facebook update for both of these.) We left shortly after.
I was tweeting tonight and saw a tweet from the Mission Viejo Patch about a police chase that started in North Mission Viejo and ended in a crash near by.
We saw the START of this police chase. CRAZY!!!!
Here's the article. The police haven't said what happened yet. God was definitely protecting us from something that could have been bad today.
I watched Griffin and Phoenix last night. It stars Amanda Peet and Dermot Mulroney. Such a sad movie, but so good!!! It is about living in the present and not taking life for granted. I highly recommend it. Has anyone else seen it?
