Today has just been full of surprises. I woke up today w/ a perfectly good plan. I was going to go to my first class, have a quick work out at the gym, 2nd class, spend the afternoon in columbia with a friend, and then have dinner in columbia with some other friends from school. Well...OBVIOUSLY that wasn't going to work out that way b/c somehow things never turn out always like I like them, but yet it seemed to work out for the best this time. I ended up going to my first class, but before I could do that I was bombarded with texts and phone calls from people needing my help getting stuff done for them today because apparently I'm "superwoman." Well...um...I hate to say it, but I just can't do it all.
So, after becoming extremely aggravated, I gave up on my visit to the gym, and told my friend I would not be shopping with her this afternoon. I also emailed my professor for my second class to tell her I would not be present. There just didn't seem to be enough hours in the day...as usual. Anyways, I got done waaaay ahead of schedule (still not in time for class), but turns out I was able to do pretty much everything that I wanted to do today (besides the gym). But anyways, I'm getting off topic.
First thing this morning, right as I'm sitting down in the caf to have breakfast, I receive a text from a family member that just simply says "I love you!" Wow, just what I needed. I was so stressed already, and just taking the time to read that & breathe just made me feel a million times better. I was like whoa...how did you know I needed that? Also, tonight, while talking with a friend and working on some more stuff, I became extremely overwhelmed and in need of a break. It was getting pretty late, but I received another text from a friend inviting me with her & her roommate to sonic for a late night grilled cheese run :) So of course, I can't turn that down. It was just what I needed to destress before the night was over. In other words, God's been good to me today. Things definitely didn't turn out as planned, but He always knows what I need. Just when I think I can't handle things any more, He throws in a curveball. I'm so blessed...Happy Thanksgiving to you & yours this year!!
