Today was a great day! It was actually a great weekend. I celebrated my guy friend's birthday in Hb on Friday night. He's like my boy BFF. I also got to see two of his friend whom I haven't seen in forever, so that was nice!
Yesterday I played a pick-up game with my kickball league, then we went over to a bar not too far from my place and pub crawled to the place across the street which is my fave. I was soooo tired though, it was ridiculous. CJ came over so that I could dye her hair, and then I went right back to sleep!
Today I went to my friend Stephanie's baby shower. She is the cutest pregnant woman ever! I love her. I was so happy I got to see her.
For those of you who have been following my blog for a while, know about her brother, Jeremy, and how the last time I saw him he was in a coma and we weren't sure if he was even going to make it....well, this is Jeremy today:
I am still so very grateful to all of you who kept him in your thoughts and prayers. His recovery has been nothing short of a miracle. His accident was in September, they weren't sure he was going to live. By October he was awake. They said they weren't sure his brain would be functional. In a few weeks he was talking. They said they weren't sure he would remember things. In November he gave me a phone call. He celebrated his 21st birthday in January. They said they weren't sure he would return to how he was. Today he's walking, talking and being himself. Nothing short of a miracle.
When I hugged him for the first time since I was in AZ, I was shaking. I'm not an emotional person, but this got to me. I didn't cry or anything, but it was slightly overwhelming. To have him giving me a hug when the last time I saw him, I wasn't sure I would see him again. It was an extremely precious moment. And being to have everyone there to celebrate Stephanie's baby shower was a tremendous blessing.
He has changed a little, but only for the better. He has a greater and deeper appreciation for life and it's a beautiful thing. The Lord is definitely going to use him for some great things! His testimony is so powerful, i think it's going to touch a lot of people.
And Stephanie is too adorable. I can only pray that I am that gorgeous when I'm pregnant. I love her so much!
After the shower I met a couple of my co-workers and some others on the beach for some volleyball. That was a lot of fun, but my arms hurt sooo much now! :-P
Between kickball, soccer, Sunday volleyball, and the workout routine my friend Lauren and I are starting, I think I should be in good shape soon!! Fingers crossed! I canceled my gym membership cuz I hadn't been since like November, so I wasted a lot of money. With this full time job, it's just hard to fit in gym time. But Lauren and I are going to do a 30 minute workout routine near our jobs. I think I'll be bale to keep it up because I have someone to hold me accountable, and it's like seconds away from my job, so I have no excuses!
Well, that's all for now!!
