When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares.
- Henri Nouwen
We're still wishing our friend a speedy recovery from a tragic accident two Friday's ago. It's been a long few days for our circle of friends. But I must honestly say, with all that has happened, I love them more everyday for being my little family. Taking stock lately...
Making | plans for all that is coming next month. It's going to be hectic, fun & we can't wait!
Cooking | pasta. It's been so long since I have properly made some & the craving has grown majorly these past few days for some odd reason.
Drinking | tons of V8 Splash Berry Blend. I don't know what's up with it that it's so delicious but I absolutely love it!!
Reading | Words of a Wanderer for the second time. It's been so needed these past few days.
Wanting | a pair of black track shorts. And if they're leather, bring it!!
Looking | forward to meeting new couples & taking more pictures. That's always my favorite.
Playing | tons of trailers lately. We have called our evenings, Trailer Nights. They secretly love it now though. Muhaha!
Wishing | sometimes to be able to rewind time, avoid a few things. But than maybe, I wouldn't appreciate what I have learned from these past experiences.
Enjoying | these texts, visits & company.
Waiting | my birthday! Yeap, for once I am over the moon with what we have planned.
Wondering | if I should buy a brown wood or black bed frame for my room?
Loving | these recent random spontaneous plans for two.
Hoping | our sweetie feels better soon & her surgery goes fantastic today.
Marveling | our road trip route. All the mountains views & insane sceneries. I have no clue if I'm actually going to survive it.
Needing | my fro to hurry up & get curly again. It's like, in the weirdest transitional period. Even though everyone loves it, I'm itching to shave my entire head off.
Smelling | my yummy Black Orchid, still!
Wearing | a bit more hints of creams & whites now that the weather is getting warmer.
Following | my own advice about boys, heartbreak & love. About time.
Noticing | body changes after working out, eating better & getting older? Aye Dios!
Thinking | about my family in Panama & how much I miss them. December cannot come any sooner.
Bookmarking | dog-milk.com. Captain K'nuckles will thank me.
Opening | myself to completely new things, ideas & people. Why not?
Giggling | at the inside jokes between my sisybae & I. I adore that girl!
Feeling | motivated, excited & very happy with life at the moment.
