{busy bee}

it's been a very busy week.
work is always busy, the bible study katie and i are doing started this week, i worked the football game all day yesterday, and little bits of life just keep piling up.

i want to be a joyful person.  i don't want to get bogged down with work and stress.  i want to enjoy life!

it's fall, one of my favorite seasons.  i want to enjoy the smell of leaves and the crispness of the air and getting to wear sweaters and boots.  my roommate is getting married in less than a month, and i want to celebrate this season of life with her and enjoy the happiness around her wedding.  i want to savor the last half of my internship at the va and learn as much as i can while i'm there, even though it's hard work 99% of the time.

life is a gift.  God sends His love in a beautiful sunrise and the fact that i'm alive to see it again. He sends it in the life-giving warmth of the sun, but also in the gentle cooling breeze.  He sends it in my patients and their families when they see a loved one say or do something they haven't been able to do for a long time, and i see that happiness and thankfulness on their faces.  He sends it with the people i care about most as they reflect Christ in how they treat me.

although i'm busy, i want to be joyful.  it's not always easy, but i'm trying.
