This is what refreshed feels like
My weekend camping was amazing! The weather was perfect, Lake Geneva was beautiful, and I had a blast with my friends. I was completely in my element. There's just something about the outdoors, you know? It was nice to just relax and let the day unwind. We walked through uncharted forest, hit the beach, roasted marshmallows, played Rumikub, frisbee, and bags, and just generally enjoyed each other's company. The best part? I was the Funny Friend this weekend! I know I have moments where I'm funny but that's typically not my role- I'm usually the Good Listener or the White Sox fan, to list a couple of the usual suspects. For whatever reason, my friends thought I was hillarious. I'm pretty sure that I'll need to be the Funny Friend for the rest of my life now; I just can't go back. It's good to come back feeling refreshed and free of all my stress. I was reminded of how God has been taking care of me all along and got some good insights on how to handle my current circumstances. And to top it all off, the Sox swept the Tigers! Could life be any better?
