Just a Good Day

Today started out awful. I definitely did not want to get out of bed, leave home, or do anything on my pages long to-do list. I did it anyway, and the day just continued to get worse. By noon I had a massive headache and I wanted to just disappear. So I did something a bit out of the ordinary. I called a friend and we just hung out for the evening. I didn't let myself think of all the things I neede to do, I didn't worry about anything at all... And right now I feel like I can face another day. I'm grateful for friends in my life. And I'm grateful that tomorrow is another day.


  1. I have a question that doesn't have to do with the post.

    Have you ever been in love, really in love, with a man? I know that I have been in love that didn't work out logistically, and well, I still took the time to stop and acknowledge what a beautiful thing that love was, even if it would never come to fruition in the form of a relationship or marriage or family. It's not the sort of thing you talk about with your beloved (although I'm not just talking about an unrequited crush, either), but it's something that enriches your life just the same...

    Do you think that romantic love expressed under a platonic ideal like this is an acceptable expression of homosexuality for a member of the Church? I guess you can't dwell on love that won't work out in the long run (whatever your sexual orientation) if you are really looking for a long-term relationship/marriage/family. But I'm curious what you think about the matter.

  2. Hooray for friends! Sometimes, even often, they are the only ones who keep me interested.


Comment Rules:

(G)MG is how I write to you. Commenting is one way to write to me.

If you want your comment published: No swearing, graphic content, name-calling of any kind, or outbound links to anything but official Church sites.

In addition, comments must be 100% relevant, funny, uplifting, helpful, friendly... well-written, concise, and true. Disparaging comments often don't meet those standards. Comments on (G)MG are personal notes to me, not part of a comment war. You are not entitled to have your ideas hosted on my personal blog. There are a zillion places for that, and only one (G)MG.

And I'd suggest writing your comment in Word and pasting it. That way Blogger won't eat it if it's over the word limit.
