First off, this mysterious thing I talked about? God definitely gave me the peace and clarity I was searching for there. So that's resolved, basically. But I really don't want to say what it was about because the person and relationship it was about knows of this blog and, well, that could lead to some awkward conversations I'm not sure I'm ready for quite yet. He may or may not figure it out, anyway. All that really matters is that I found the peace I needed to deal with that, and I'm good with where things are.
Second, Chelsea quit her job in the middle of a fight with Mom sometime this weekend that I don't even totally understand, so I was obviously freaking out that I was going to have no escape from her for the next four weeks until I leave for DC. Well, Mom took Chelsea back to McDonald's today and somehow convinced the manager there to give her her job back. Hallelujah and thank you, Jesus. Things are bad enough with her at work 40 hours a week, I really don't want to see what it would be like with her home 24/7.
Third, as Chelsea was home today with Blake (no reason other than she decided he didn't need to go to daycare if she wasn't working), I got to get out of the house and go to Jacksonville with my grandma. I got to help her pick out a smartphone and teach her the basics of it. I have no idea why she all of a sudden decided she wanted to learn how to text and "be in the 21st century" but she did so I went with her to give her my advice on what I thought would be the best phone for her. And she found one she likes for a good price. Luckily, my grandma is a smart woman, even if she is old and constantly says her mind "just ain't what it used to be", so once you show her stuff a time or two, she catches on. It's actually rather adorable.
Fourth, there really wasn't much fighting today. Thank the Lord. There was still some, but much less than usual, so it basically felt like a day off.
Fifth, my friends continue to support me in all areas of my life. I've had lots of sweet conversations with people today that just make my heart so happy. There have been several in the past few days that have sat and prayed with me, and that warms my heart so much to know people care that deeply about me. I don't know if God is just making up for the lack of friends in my past or what (joking!!), but every day lately I am reminded of just how overly blessed I am in this area.
