Anne of Green Gables and other reasons life will be okay
My roommate and I watched Anne of Green Gables last night (or at least half of it. YouTube pooped out on us after a while.) I've been sort of stuck on my novel for a while, and the movie turned out to be the breath of fresh air that I needed to clear the cobwebs. It was her idea, and I was just kind of going with it, and I'm glad I did. It made me feel happy anyway. Anne of Green Gables is good at that.
I have some awesome friends. They get me, and don't get too frustrated with my ranting and whining. They do things like make cookies and smile really big when I walk into a room. I have a relatively new friend who does that, and it makes me happy. We drink peach Fresca together and talk about boys.
Even though from my perspective the future makes no sense, it does to God, and it will all work out. It always does, even though that's hard to remember or fully appreciate when you're in the not-worked-out-yet phase. It's just an interesting time of life, the not-quite-an-adult-yet time. But I don't know if anyone ever really gets out of the insecure and unsure phase, and the future is always scary. I hope it gets less scary, but really all we can do is pray and work and hope for the best and know it will come, and enjoy good friends, peach Fresca and Anne of Green Gables in the meantime.
C'est la vie!
