Good Days

Yesterday was an incredibly good day. It was a day off from work. I was able to sleep in late. I didn't get any calls from any of my workers, nagging me about stupid, trivial things that they ought to know on their own without having to pester me. I was finally able to finish that writing assignment that was actually due last month, but I'd got an extension on the deadline. I was able to reply to a few emails to some friends, whom I'd wanted so much to be able to get in touch with. I listened to some really good Christian songs. I prayed to God. I was able to do some drawing. I watched a couple of really good movies. I found a Reese's Cup in a kitchen drawer. And I went halves with my brother to get a pizza for supper (Pizza just happens to be my favorite food). Yep, it was a good day.

Today has been good too. I'm not sure why, but I just feel so close to God. I feel like nothing could go wrong. Nothing that's usually been bothering me lately has bothered me at all. I don't feel lonely, angry, depressed, tired, confused, or frustrated. I just feel... good.

I know a big part of that is that I don't feel alone anymore. I know there are people out there who love me and care about me. There are people who understand me, who pray for me, and who don't care if I'm an oddball or not. They just like me for me, and want to know me despite whatever faults I have. And there are a lot of people I feel the same about in return. It feels good knowing that. I have friends now.

I also have dreams again. There are so many things I want to be able to do. I have so much to look forward to, and I feel like I truly do have a future. That's one thing I haven't felt like I had for a long time. The future just seems so bright and hopeful.

Brandon,

Isn't it nice to see the sun shine once in a while and not feel like we have to be under a could all the time?

But, I have one bone to pick with you - that was MY Reeses Peanut Butter Cup! I was saving it for later!!!!

I am glad that you are doing well bro. I'm praying for you and others all the time.

Love ya man!

Rik

Typo: I meant "under a cloud" all the time (LOL!)
