spirits that speak


what is happening today?!

so, i'm not sure what's going on today. i ran into 3 people from pretty different eras in my life (i'm only 28, how many eras could there be?).

first, from my rock start era, i ran into someone who i never really knew as well as i probably would like to. we always kind of make small talk and are friendly, but never "friends", whatever that means. it made me think about what my life was like then, and how crazy and passionate i was about my faith (and way more outspoken about my opinions).

then at the grocery store i ran into a friend of mine from almost ten years ago. she was a girl that i used to have a huge crush on (of course, i'm married now...hi honey!). it was one of those things. i knew her in high school, but didn't become friends until after that. but i still feel like we were really close friends and seeing her reminded me of a really good time in my life.

finally, a girl from high school that i kinda knew and was friendly toward, but we really didn't have much of a connection. it made me remember what kind of a wreckless and carefree person i was back then...good times.

i guess this is all to say that it all made me think about the experiences that have made me who i am today. i'm grateful for all that, and just thought i'd post it for the sake of commemorating the feeling...i guess.

wow, what a relatively meaningless post. sorry, i'll try to have something more significant next time.


  • we all had crushes, but,
    a really good time in your life....
    what about now, is this not a good time in your life?

  • I actually liked this post. Especially since I had a dream last night that my MB had a reunion and I saw all my high school classmates again. Weird, eh? Anyway, it got me to thinkin' too.

  • well, i see i was completely ineffective in being just subtle enough to be undertstood.

    these things have been part of making me who i am today. included there is how good my life truly is today. of course, you're part of my life today.

    quick, someone say "nice save"!

    all i ask is that if you do decide to do me the honor of listing my link that you list it under my blog name, not my real name ;-)
