I’m about to go on my first vacation of the year. I get to be a bridesmaid in my brother’s wedding this weekend. This is my second time being a bridesmaid. The first time was more than 20 years ago and I’ve been a maid-of-honor twice – also 20-some years ago. Those marriages are all still intact … for some reason that really makes me happy.
Anyway, I’m packed and ready to go and looking forward to a few days of rest. After my successful 100-mile challenge, I needed the break. Next week I’ll be back at the gym, but this week is just about rest. I love vacations where there is absolutely nothing on the agenda. I don’t suppose this really qualifies as that … you know, because of the wedding and all, but you know what I mean. All I have to do is put on a dress and show up. Not exactly sure what I’m going to do with this hair (#naturalhairproblems) but I’ll figure something out.Earlier in the week, I was passed over for an opportunity that I really wanted. Funny thing is, I wasn't really that disappointed. I remembered this:
I’m actually looking forward to what God has in store. I know that His plan will be for my good. I really wish I had adopted this attitude when I was younger instead of falling into a blue funk each time I didn’t get what I thought I deserved. Life would have been so much more enjoyable.
When you know better, you do better!
