What a week of walks down Memory Lane I have had. A week of revisitations. I am not complaining, I have loved every moment. And at the end of it all, I am feeling ready for Next. Level. Sh*t.
My bestie came to town. We had more chatty walkie time than in recent visits, so, many discussions and aha moments. Topped off with a full moon fire pit letting go burn sesh, which included roasting (and eating) mini marshmallows. Nothing much better than face time with the Real Ones, and we mined every inch of those walkie/talkies for treasure.
Family birthday gathering. My youngest nephew became a man(keep it out of the gutter people). That's right, he has now twirled around Solaris 18 times. No babies left in the house. Many giggles, side eyes, and the famous chocolate glazed yellow/butter birthday cake. Mo sugar, mo smiles, and birthday candle wishes to boot.
Surf Church. Maybe you don't know I am a closet Jesus Freak, because I mind my business and stay in my lane. But it has been a minute since I have been to a church service. I have my reasons, but there are no hard feelings or bridges burned. I can't say I will go back, but I did wake up and get out in time to see the sun rise over the Atlantic ocean, and I saw some familiar faces, gave and was given a Word. Also, my one day off seemed especially long because it started so early. Soul quenched.
UNCW women's soccer game. I haven't been to a soccer game since the spring of 2019, which is saying A LOT since I spent more days than not either in a car traveling to/from a game, or butt on bleacher for most of 2012-2019. The weather was perfect, the girls won, and again, I saw some familiar faces and exchanged some sweet words. Soccer mom hat layed to rest? I am feeling some feels. More will be revealed.
It might not sound like much, but I feel I have been around the world and back again. Like a record playing both forward and back, and both directions producing sweet music. Maybe it's the whole end of that Mercury in Gatorade ish, or maybe it is just Life doing what Life does when we really become ready to make a BIG LEAP forward. It checks and checks again. "You ready? YOU READY?"
I am ready. Bring. It. On.
