♣ This week, I said goodbye. Ironically most farewells do not fare as well as one would hope but I still believe that in the greater scheme of things, we are always where we need to be. You just need time to understand and accept that. At the same time you have to move - forward, always forward.
♣ This week, I said hello to an old new friend. Funny how I find myself again and again in snippets of our conversations despite being too similar at times. We have our differences too, though (and a misunderstanding that may have costed our friendship). I’ve learned heaps from this person and I’m blessed, just like everyone else who’s found someone they can have close and honest friendships with.
♣ This week, I spent more time with my girl friends. We’ve grown so much from the little girls who dealt with petty, catty, superficial things. Maturity may have come along, but it doesn’t mean we do not have space for error. I suppose with girl friends it’s okay to let bonds break every now and then. Because it always gets better when we pick up the pieces together. It’s like devouring a hundred cupcakes sans guilt.
♣ This week, I had my first snap of rejection and it wasn’t pleasant. But some friends helped see me through it and I feel a) grateful to have these kids who are logical yet sympathetic and b) humbled. As with any sort of failure, you dust yourself off and pray you do better next time around.
♣ This week, it hit me. There’s someone. And so far it’s been pretty great. Happy.
♣ This week I remembered that He has plans and that I also have a sense of accountability.
♣ This week, I needed the family. I’ve tried ringing them for the past few days but they’ve been so busy so I just resigned to texting them Holy Week and Easter greetings. My mom eventually sent me a text saying they’ve all gone to Region 2 for the holidays. And that they’ve missed me and wanted to see me. They also played a prank! Mom said we’ve adopted a four-month old beaut and they made me believe it was a human baby, turns out we have a new dog called Ted! Nutters, but I love them all. Is there a better way to end the Holy Week and to start afresh than spending time with your fam bam, friends and loved ones?

I hope we’ve all taken some time to reflect this week. If you’ve not, go try and be amazed when you realise how blessed you are, in more ways than one.
Happy Easter, kids.
