The word from her today was ‘walking miracle’.
She always does say the most unexpected things at the most unexpected times. We didn’t plan to meet at all – I just suddenly thought of asking her this morning, since I was in the area. Didn’t think she would be free, especially at such short notice. But she was. Even though it was delayed in the end, we had a nice chat at a place further down the road.
She is right, of course.
At any point, things could have easily just fallen apart. 这条命真的是捡回来的！
It should be encouraging to view the journey as a path dotted with miracles and God’s preservation.
Life is really very different now.
I eat cautiously. Cranberry bread from a store, with sliced cheese, lightly toasted. It’s a luxury, a special treat. (And while I’m taking a photo of it, mentally calculating how much breakfast costs.)
I blog infrequently. Not because I’ve grown tired of it, but because by the time I get to it, it’s usually 2+am and my mind is blank.
I often feel unsafe on Facebook – there are friends and there are friends.
I still journal a lot – that seems to be a safe space. But few hear about those thoughts nowadays. It is true – “Never pass up an opportunity to shut up”.
I bake almost not at all – it’s just too expensive.
I would love to have a predictable, routine, stable week for a change.
Maybe the next dots on the path are on the way.
