friendships and a life in flux

my last performance of "grease" happened sunday. what a fun experience! my good buddies amy and michelle drove up from l.a. for the weekend. my other friend, kristen is moving to riverside this thursday. our lives are always in flux. we are always in transition. i wonder if we stay the same, if at that moment, we are aware for the first time that every single moment we are that much closer to dying, the sands from our life's hourglass dripping through the narrow passageway into the pile of other grains of sand, indiscernable as being different, to the naked eye. there is something to be said for risking and putting yourself out there on the line.

post something significant one of your friends has taught you. i'll post mine too.

kristen has taught me over time the importance of speaking clearly when trying to make a point. sunday morning, she taught me about being vulnerable (something she doesn't do in front of a lot of people) and also about conquering fear. she rocks.

A. opened my eyes to the idea that people aren't necessarily bad or misguided if they're different from you or the people you're used to being around. Wasn't even trying - he was just being himself, and I had to come face-to-face with a reality that was totally different from the one I experience just by encountering that self.

Jennifer has taught me about what it is to be a godly wife. Shelly has taught me about being a godly (and excellent!) mother. Faith has taught me about being true to oneself...and when something is not right in life...to deal with it straighaway. Kelly has taught me about total, steady acceptance...and following this journey of life, wherever it may lead. I love them all for this!
