this just in.

Life is busy and full and changing and a little unpredictable right now. I feel a little unsettled in many areas but I'm learning that it's okay. It's actually good. and part of being human. Once one area is resolved, another area gets off center. And according to my mom, this happens until you die. like it literally doesn't ever end- even when you're a grown up or married or have kids or any of those things. In fact, I hear it just gets even more complicated. I can't believe I didn't know this. I'm still taking it in. wowzers.

So apparently it's not about finding a recipe to avoid all the ish that life can dish, but about living a life of love and grace and forgiveness and hope and resilience. There is always reason to have hope and keep moving forward. One way or another you have to get through it, so enjoy it.
soak up the good. the sweetness. the love.

First week impressions

Session one of camp started last Sunday. I love it. The campers are so sweet and wonderful. I am wondering how to arrange a way to be a summer camp nurse all year long. Here are some of my favorite things about camp Krem so far:

1. There is always something funny/random/shocking happening somewhere close by
2. If you aren't in the middle of a dance party, you are probably just leaving one or on your way to one
3. I get to be the nurse lady who sometimes just gives hugs instead of medicine
4. Dressing up in costumes is part of the daily routine
5. I get to hear "Hi Amy, thanks for my medicine, I love you" everyday. and they mean it. and I say it back because I mean it too.

We're only a week in, but I'm hooked.

Dwelling in a place of surprise and gratitude.
and that's all I have to say about it.
