Something I've been thinking about recently... I'm very thankful for the people in my life who don't live up to my expectations. I realize that sounds ridiculous, but instead of being frustrated, I'm choosing to be thankful. There are people who I love and I will always love, no matter how many stupid decisions they make (repeatedly) because I love them for who they are, and that won't ever change. While it is certainly frustrating to have people disappoint me, I am seeing it for the first time in a new light. It's a reminder to me. If I, imperfect and limited as I am, can still love people who screw up all the time, how much more does God love me? Wow.

So I watched maybe the last 10 minutes of Grey's Anatomy this evening (which I pretty much never do.) And they played this song "Break Me Out" by the Rescues (my #10 song on my best songs of 2008 list). I always feel a mixture of excitement and sadness when this happens. Kind of a bittersweet thing... when a band I really like and have listened to for a while finally makes it to t.v. or a commercial. Some part of me thinks, "They're mine, what's everyone else doing listening to them?"

Anyway, no real point to this post. Just trying to get back in the habit of writing a little something, here and there.
