What a fantastic day.
It started out a little iffy. Even though I got up at 9, I still had trouble staying awake and by 10:50 I had a brief nap and then began an hour long nap. Then I went to look for grandpa and could not find him.
So I emailed Natalie. It is going to be a good day when that happens.
I went to Momentum practice from there, which, on my part, went bad. I was not familiar with the songs, and I still have not played much drums.
And then, grandpa Leon showed up. That was a surprise. I see him maybe three times a year. And never at church. And mom and dad showed up too. First time I saw them all weekend.
And Momentum happened. I played even worse than practice. We watched the video of the dad who does the Ironman while carrying his physically disabled son and I cried. Crying comes easier these days. That is a welcomed change.
And then I talked to Kelly!
I love Kelly. Jon is so fortunate.
They are moving to St. Louis at the end of July, so I will probably only see them once before they move. That is really sad. I miss our Friday lunches.
And then we went over grandma and grandpas, and had a good time talking to everyone. Grandpa loves us so much. He is so fascinated and grateful for any gift he receives. I just got him simple snap caps from England for his shotgun, and he was so excited about them. And I showed them my pictures.
I love my family.
And now I am here. There were a lot of details about the day that were great on top of it all.
It was a fantastic day.
A fantastic world.
A fantastic life.
Super heros and protagonists, and even antagonists, always have something from their past, some dark spot, some weakness, some devil, something that plagues them forever, the one thing that causes them to fail or be imperfect.
I refuse to have that. I refuse to allow anything from the past to haunt me. I will not be perfect, but it is only current demons that will interefere with life.
There are too many blessings to get caught up in what has happened. Too much wonderfulness to concern myself with misdeeds of the past.
Learning from, yes. But sometimes the best lesson to learn is that by focusing on all the blessings in life there is not even room to repeat the mistakes of the past or for would be mistakes to occur. Even if perfection is unobtainable, an attempt at obedience is so fun.
