"its got the biggest blue skies you've ever seen and underneath we'd be dancing you and me. i'd sure like that a lot."
i like this song. it's called "I'd Sure Like That A Lot," by Stephen Ashbrook. its makes me hope for someone who'll say to me "hey, a roadtrip sounds nice." and we'd head out west and dance together underneath the big blue skies :)
sometimes i have these moments in which i feel like my life is "ready" to happen. sounds ridiculous, i know. but i'm sure you've had the feeling. "ok, i'm ready to get married now." really i just want it to happen but i'm not always sure i'm ready.
or "ok, what's next, lord?"
still gratefully content to be here and enjoying the now moments, i am eager for what my life will look like in...say...five years. it seems like there are still so many "firsts" of life yet to happen. i always thought life at 20-something was so "grown up" and everything would have "happened" by now. haha. it's rather interesting to figure out what life is really like, rather than what i thought it would be like.
all i know is, at 22 its easy to start feeling entitled to life--and what life "promises" (degrees, boyfriends, friendships, marriage, houses, kids). I've been wrestling with how to live true to reality and live with a raw honesty that seeks to live life as it comes--expected or unexpected. does this make sense?
there's so much "I want." i want to live with my wants surrendered...to live well each passing afternoon...
so difficult sometimes.
looking thankfully forward to having a break in 9 days (but who's counting)--to spend time at home with friends and family...to get away...to think and pray and live away from pressures of restricted dorm life. hmm. sounds lovely.
