vacations are good for reevaluating. and sleeping. unfortunately I’ve been doing more of the first than the second. and since i’m still working some, it doesn’t quite feel like a full vacation. but that’s okay… it’s still been really nice.
Enjoying my time away. Is hard to see my granparents get older and know that these times are limited… but we are enjoying every moment of our trip. :) Looking forward to visiting Jess this weekend in DC too! :)
Ted and I were talking the other day about how facebook in some ways aids in the “superwoman” mindset… I have a billion friends who all have stuff going on and I feel a responsibility to care for each of them…but in reality some of these people are folks i haven’t even talked to in years. I should be investing in the friends that are a part of my daily life now… not saying that doesn’t mean I should ignore the old friends, but its just a matter of priorities i guess. Seems to be a constant thing of figuring out exactly what (and who) God is calling me to invest in and serve.
on a random note, we went to Philadelphia today and saw Independence Hall. Is kind of sad to see how far our country has come since the original ideas we were based on… some of the quotes from the Declaration / Constitution seem almost foreign to the way things are actually done today…
