Dear Friday, I thought you would never come. You see, this is my last week working every day for the next 14 weeks! Starting next week, it is Monday through Wednesday for me. Looking forward to sitting on my porch reading all day next Friday.
Dear Red Cross, I know you want my platelets and I will happily give them to you next week LIKE I TOLD YOU TWO MONTHS AGO. I visit you regularly and allow you to poke and prod me and steal my blood and platelets but this has been a crazy semester (like I said, every single time you call me). I will try to make up for lost time this summer, just please stop calling me.
Dear Red Box, I need you to have good choices when I stop by to pick up a movie for my platelet donation.
Dear AK, You can not wear long sleeves when it is going to be 90 degrees. No matter how many times you say it is going to be 6 degrees, it just isn’t. You live in Georgia, no long sleeves until November. Also, just because you dream about eating outside and going to the beach doesn’t mean I am dreaming the same thing. I love those things too but shouting at me telling what I did or did not dream last night isn’t going to change anything. Also, thank you for the Mother’s Day picture you worked so hard on, it was very sweet, you make a pretty cute butterfly but you might want to tell your teacher that graceful doesn’t really describe me, awkward might have been a better choice or undexterous! Both words have Rs in them.
Dear Face, I know it has been a stressful time the last few weeks and I tortured you with that new face wash. I promise to never use it again. We have got to get some things straight. I am not a teenage boy. I am not eating a bunch of junk food, I even cut soda completely out of my diet. I don’t do meth. Can you please get it together and stop torturing me? I can’t handle the breakouts, it is getting really old.
Dear Spring, I thought we were past this? Freeze warning tonight? Seriously, get it together, wasn’t it 80 yesterday?
Dear AK, Thank you for being honest about being in trouble at school this week. I know you will work harder to not play during lunch.
Dear Philippians, Way to call me out this morning.
Do all things without grumbling or disputing, that you may be blameless and innocent, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and twisted generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world. 2:14-15
I have been grumbling a little too much lately. I get it. Hey, when is this two month study going to end? There might be other books in the Bible I need to check out.
Dear Sadie, Thanks for being my accountability partner, not just in exercise but also in the rest of my life! I am loving our 6 AM
torture sessions work outs.
Dear Orchid on my desk, I loved you, I really did. I know I don’t show it very well but I am just not very good with plants. I don’t know if you will make it to next Friday, if not RIP.
Dear Friday, You couldn’t get here soon enough. This week has been crazy and I am not even sure what I did every day this week.
Dear Spring, You’re here! Hallelujah!! I was beginning to worry you would never show your face around these parts again. Looking forward to brisk morning runs, bike rides, and long walks!
Dear AK, I am going to need you to tone down the sass. It is really wearing on me. I am hoping spring’s arrival will assist with the problem as we are going to spend as much time outside as possible; go ahead and say goodbye to all your friends on Disney Jr because it is going to be a rainy day before we visit with them again. Also no matter how many times you ask, we are not changing your name to Rapunzel. You have two names to choose from A or K or AK, those are your choices.
Dear March, ummm, where did you go? How is there only 11 more days left? I have a lot of things I need to get done in those 11 days, so if you could just slow it down a little that would be great.
Dear Girlfriends in God, Thanks for the clutter reminder in your Friday devotion – That hit home, did you write that just for me? “It’s one thing to be prudent with our stuff. But when we start to hold onto things with a “just in case” mentality, what we are saying in some small but significant ways is that we are the bottom line instead of trusting in God provision.” Ouch…the truth hurts sometimes.
