Best Surprise EVER!

Guess who showed up at my dorm today...

My mommy!

:)  She came to eat dinner with me on her way home from her workshop and decided to spend the night because it started snowing.  SO COOL.  We played pool for three hours.  We're going to buy me a real pool cue tomorrow because I'm semi-good now, but the pool cue that's here sucks royally.

Something else cool was we met a girl, Rebekah, in the lobby while we were playing, and she and her friend started telling me about Pep Band, and I think I'm going to start playing the trombone again and join next year.  She said that they really need trombone players, and that the band director will let me rent out a trombone so I can get used to playing again.  And then we realized how small of a world it is....Rebecca is from New Bern, where my mom teaches.  Her brother was in my mom's class last semester, as was her best friend the year before.  She came to my high school for a band competition years ago, and she's seen Matt at various college band things.  How weird!  We ended up talking to her for two hours.  It's crazy what God can do, huh?

Okay, I'm really tired.  Thank God it's Friday.

  1. I'm so glad your mom came to visit! That was a pick-me-up you sorely needed! I was going to comment on your previous post, but then the Olympic ceremony came on & I ran out of time - so I'm glad you got a happy surprise!
