Hey Girls! Just wanted to let you all know that I'm still alive. And feeling a lot better. A lot more like myself. Captain America even mentioned it last time he visited. That he recognized me. I'd gotten pretty bad over the last month, and hadn't really recognized it.
Yesterday was a good day. And I'm liking the people a lot. George, Mara, Valencia and Karon. Good people. They are definitely making the stay a lot more enjoyable.
Today is Friday and I'm starting to get bored. hehe. I need something to wash or clean. ROFL! And if you'd seen my house this past month, that is a HUGE change for me. I was lacking in energy and didn't do anything. I'm looking forward to even little things, like chores. I just need to pace myself.
Faith Based Group was really good today. We talked about making the decision to be happy, and changing our lives to reflect that. Cut out the bad, and add in more good.
I want to make my home a better environment by the music, by the things we do and talk about in our house, having more of a spirit of prayer.
I want to start getting up earlier to get ready for the day, to pray and study, to journal my feelings. I'm looking forward to these changes. I think I was looking outside to find things to make me happy, when I should be finding things within to make me happy. I find myself craving those things now. The good things.
Right now, I'm in Faith Based Group, and I hope that this session is as good as this morning's session.
HA! It was! We're learning a lot about choosing our thoughts. It's so true!
It's now 3 PM, and I'm hanging out in free time. We really do have a lot of free time. 2 of my friends went home today. Our little group is getting smaller and smaller. I now have my own room. But I'll miss Karon. She was a good roommate! :-)
I wrote individual notes to each of the kids. I hope they like them, and I hope they know how much I love them. Because I really do love them. And while I feel bad that I left them to come here, I recognize that this will make me stronger for them. And they deserve that!
