I feel like my life is standing still while everyone elses' move forward. Today my best friend called to tell me that she is engaged. It wasn't a surprise. I knew it would happen soon. In fact, I rather suspected it would happen this weekend. I'm thrilled for her. He is a great guy, and I know they will be very happy. Still, there is a sting in it. We will always be friends...nothing can change that, but it won't be the same anymore. I realize that this is a natural part of life and that it is a good thing, but it doesn't make it feel much better for now. At least I have wedding and bridesmaid fun ahead of me. ;)
Meanwhile, I continue on in my state of unemployment and uncertainty. I have to keep reminding myself that things will not always be like this. I will find a job, and hey, maybe someday I'll even find a man! You never know what's around the next bend in the road. My good friend Anne (as in Of Green Gables) taught me that. :) At any rate, life is right now. It doesn't start when the next thing comes along. It is what I make of what I have now. I think I had better start making something great of it. After all, as Switchfoot tells us...
Don’t close your eyes, don’t close your eyes
This is your life and today is all you’ve got now
Yeah, and today is all you’ll ever have
So, what shall I do with my todays?
