I would like a Dove Promise today.

Today has been one of those days. You know, one of those days.

Just before bed last night I found out that one of my brother's best friends from high school was found dead in his home on Saturday night. There are no specifics as of yet; however, he had long struggled with drug abuse, among other personal issues, and we fear the worst. It's the type of situation that makes you realize your own selfishness, and the fact that we go years without ever really helping anyone, even our friends, because we're so busy with other commitments. It's not until death that we step back and re-evaluate. I'm just as guilty as the next person, but I honestly try every single day to tell people that they are loved, and to do little things that show how I feel. It's so important, and it's the one effort that will never be regretted. Call people back, send a thank-you note, PRAY, make a (nice) comment on Facebook, what have you...little things always add up. Caleb put himself through a great deal of pain, but I pray he knows he was loved. If he didn't while he was here, I have faith that he surely does now. We'll meet again, soon, funny man.

I'm sitting at work right now, waiting for a student to finish testing, and my head is pounding with a dull, throbbing ache that prohibits me from really working. While stopped at a red light this morning, I watched a three-car wreck unfold before my eyes. It was a downpour all the way from Atlanta on I-20, so most of my drive was set to the music of little prayers that went something like this: "God, please help us all get to where we're going safely".

The highlight of my day has been my Venti Passion Tea from Starbucks, and my aquamarine nails. Oh, the little things in life...

I'll probably write some more later but, for now, my head is hurting too much. Be safe in all this weather!
