What can I say I have a lot on my mind today! I don’t even know where to start. It’s all so big and yet so trivial, these thoughts of mine. But that is the way it goes with me. It seems like a big deal but then I spell it all out and guess what – NOT A BIG DEAL. Well, it’s still a big deal to me but to someone else – trivial. I mean just think what a mess my life would be if I were Paris Hilton. Now there is a woman with a troubled existence. But she has made a huge, life altering, incredible discovery, she is never again going to drink and drive. I’m amazed at the sacrifices that woman is making (HUGE eye roll). Oh and that is the last you will ever hear of her from me again. I cringe when her name even has to pass my lips – thank goodness that isn’t too often. There are things that suck in my life but thank goodness I’m not Paris Hilton! All the money in the world isn’t going to buy that chick a sane life!
Hey I said this post was about Friends, Church and Assorted STUFF, I’ll get to the other stuff – seriously.
I had an opportunity to meet a friend for dinner last night. I only see this particular friend about once a year since she doesn’t live here but has to come to my little city for business every once in awhile. It was great to see her but sometimes I get overwhelmed with it all. I just want to enjoy the moment but know that I have to cram it all into a few short hours and then I get so bogged down with trying to think of everything that I want to say that I don’t say anything. I hate that. So although I thoroughly enjoyed the visit and seeing her again I am not sure she knows it since I think I seemed a little distant. But really I wasn’t that way on the inside. Maybe I need to start wearing one of those clapboard sign things around my neck so people know what the heck I am thinking.
And about that Church thing, let’s just say I have missed a LOT of masses and I think it is time to get back in the swing of things. I think everyone needs some balance in the big picture, a time to reflect on the greater good and the reason for being here. I haven’t had the opportunity to think about these things lately, so back to church for me. Say what you want, but for me – it’s a good thing.
