Tax Day (aka Lora's birthday!)

Happy Birthday Lora! Normally April 15 is a rather grim day for the general American majority but your birth makes it much sweeter. And so does the fact that I spent months pretending that my taxes didn't exist in fear of owing a ton of money, and then getting back $600. I'm a pretty happy camper about that at the moment.
This week has been great so far. I have decided to just be thankful through the good the bad and the ugly, and with each passing day I have been waking up with a heart that is more and more full of love, nothing that I can explain, nothing I did anything to earn. That is the most incredible thing about grace is the moment that we are brought back to the place where we realize that it is truly free, and that there is no amount of striving or good behavior that we could ever do to earn it. So I am reveling in that revelation of true grace that I knew so well back in the beginning, and also in my $600 surprise. Okay, well I'm off to work again. Later!

Access 9

Well hello to everyone that actually reads my random blogs that I post almost never. Life is good at the moment. I woke up this morning with the motivation to detail clean the entire house. I felt quite accomplished. I even got that hidden spot in the fridge that almost all people ignore even though they know it is accumulating massive amount of God knows what with each passing day. NOW I am currently sitting at beach access 9 at Wrightsville. I am having a blast squeezing sand between my toes while gazing at the water until I have to get ready for work. Oh yes, and I watched "A Perfect World" for the first time in years... Lora if you are reading this, you would love this movie. It's with Kevin Costner.. One of my favorites as a little kid. My sweet friends went back to Charlotte today, and my Drea left me to finish recording her album for another 3 1/2 weeks. Work is going great so far, I have made way more moola than I thought I would for my first week on the floor. I really like the people I work with, which makes life so much happier. I have been having the itch this week to travel to some crazy exotic island in who knows where... But that happens about this time every year.. Maybe next trip will be Santorini or somewhere in Sicily. Well I'm going to quit daydreaming for the moment and go wash off all the sand for work. If you are reading this, you are DEARLY LOVED today. New mercies are so sweet.

Blessed is the man who has a Chik-Fil-A in every section of his town. His quiver will be full of soft serve ice dream cups. Yes, I did just say that. Go me!
