Thankful Thursday: Have I done any good in the world today?

Have I done any good in the world today?
Have I helped anyone in need?
Have I cheered up the sad and made someone feel glad?
If not, I have failed indeed.
Has anyone’s burden been lighter today
Because I was willing to share?
Have the sick and the weary been helped on their way?
When they needed my help was I there?

Thankful Thursday: Celebrating personal victories

Two hours later I gasped at the paper in front of me.  Eight accounting homework pages later and the two final numbers were equal!  I nearly threw my arms into the air yelling jubilation, but that would have induced cardiac arrest in the other accounting students in the near-silent library room.  So I just skipped out of the library and all the way home.  :)

Thankful Thursday: Dancing in the Rain

The rain started trickling onto our rooftop tap tap tap and pretty soon came a louder rap rap rap on our door, and Miria excitedly got us out of our room into the parking lot where we danced danced danced in the dark night with the rain rain rain.

The rain came down faster faster faster and soon we were singing singing singing up at Ailina's window, and she came down down down to join us.  The shoes came off, our hair got drippy drippy drippy, and the laughter and waltzes flowed.  I had the wrong timing timing timing but it was so fun fun fun.  :)

I am thankful thankful thankful for the blessed sister and roommates I live with.  For peace, love, laughter and joy in unforgettable moments moments moments that I will treasure treasure treasure forever.

And the rain still falls down down down...  :)

With whom do you dance dance dance in the rain?  :)

Thankful Thursday: Big Band, Servicemen&Women, and Vintage Dancers :)

When Drue gushed to me about a Big Band concert on campus, my first reactions were a mix of "I still don't know what big band is" and "well it would probably be fun with her" and "maybe I dont want to use my night like that".
