Good Morning, Readers.

I realize that it is not actually morning, I just was able to sleep in for the first time in months and it was wonderful.  Giving my body the chance to wake up on its own time makes for an amazing day. :) A bowl of cereal at 3 in the afternoon never tasted better than after a long night of sleep.  I have been tired lately and it has been difficult for me to get things done.

It is winter. Winter makes it difficult for me to find inspiration and I am continually trying to place myself into situations that make me happy, doing things that I enjoy, and observing things that came out of someone else' inspiration.  I find that when I immerse myself in positive situations and relationships, my winters are so much more bearable.

Last night was the first night of a new bible study that mom and I have recently started. We laughed, we cried, and we learned a lot about one another in just one session.  I was able to have coffee with my friend Derrick last night.  He is one of the most musically and philosophically artistic people I have ever met.  I appreciate his intelligence and his creativity. I look forward to making time for writing and painting.  There is a peace that I find within myself when I pour my insides onto paper or canvas.  I look forward to my weekly outings with my mom. We always have such a good time shopping, finding new restaurants and coffee houses, and experimenting with new ideas.  

There is so much to look forward to.  Having just graduated from college, I have the rest of my life to figure out and I have plans to make.  Although I still struggle with being apathetic in the winter,  coffee and slippers make planning so much easier.  

So God, bring on the future.  I can't wait to see what you have waiting for me!

Brittany,

I think it's great that you have been able to give your body the much deserved rest it needs... good for you!

Winters are difficult for me as well... you're a real "chip off the ol' block." I find it inspiring that you are able to make the best of your situation by focusing on the positive relationships in your life. A replenishing friendship certainly warms the soul and makes the heart cheerful any time of the year.

Even on cold, blustery days we can see God working all around us if we choose to open our eyes to what He has to show us. You truly have the rest of your life ahead of you and God has a perfect plan He is unfolding as you put one foot in front of the other relying on Him for guidance.

Continue to stay focused, spend time cultivating precious relationships, rest your body, mind, and spirit, and wearing those fuzzy slippers!!

Join me soon for coffee (or chai tea latte made with soy milk for me:)real soon??

Love, Mom
