Today, I went to a friend’s baby’s first birthday party. We had it at a campground with a campfire. We made s’mores and then threw a packet to make the flames pretty.
This was fun because I was able to enjoy it with my friends and their kids.
I also met someone new and amazing there as well through some mutual friends. I have been having a very stressful week, and he was able to help me forget about the stress and relax. He is wonderful. This new beginning couldn’t have come at a better time.
It is sort of fitting that this be the story of my last Happy post of my 100 Day Challenge. Friends, fire, and new beginnings. Here’s to many more happy days to come! :)
Today was a long day (to say the least). I went to Adoration. I was able to spend time with Jesus. The day got infinitely better from then. I was able to let Jesus shoulder my burden. I was able to leave my cross at the foot of Jesus. I had a lot of tension. I cried my eyes out at the foot of Jesus. I wept like Mary at the foot of the cross. I felt infinitely better afterwards.
Ironically, my crying at the foot of Jesus made me happy. Weird, yes. Refreshing, yes.
Today, I trained for basically 9 hours at my dojang. One of Master Seo’s students (who is now a 4th Degree Master with her own school), taught morning class. It was just the two of us. She worked me hard. Then I had a private sparring lesson with The Brain. Then I trained even more.
Having Momma Mary ready to swoop in and save me made me happy!
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother; to thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me.
Finding joy in the little things…One day at a time.
