I am such a loser. There’s a girl who used to go to our church who was very active in our theatre ministry. She did just about everything we wrote. She was amazing. Gorgeous. Talented. Beautiful. Talented. Anyway. She moved away. She’s been through a LOT. She hasn’t been to church in three years.
Sunday night, in the bathroom, as I’m washing my hands wishing the soap smelled like something other than my doctor’s office, I see her face behind me in the mirror. She smiles at me and I just about flipped out. See, I’ve been trying to find her. I’ve called her. I tried for a long time to convince her to come back to our church after she left, but then they moved to another state and it wasn’t really an option anymore. I’d heard she was back in town, and she’d been through a LOT… but I hadn’t been able to get a hold of her yet. And truth be told, I wasn’t sure what I would say… would she even want to talk to me??
But here she was, standing behind me in the bathroom in the church. I couldn’t believe it. I was so happy. SO happy to see her there. She needed to be there. She sat with me and we had a chance to catch up – but not enough, and so we decided we were going to have lunch on Wednesday.
Yeah, that’s today. Today is Wednesday. And am I at lunch??
I FORGOT TODAY WAS WEDNESDAY AND I FORGOT TO MEET HER FOR LUNCH.
I AM SUCH A LOSER.
I feel terrible. She, obviously, was so understanding about it, but how in the world – yesterday, I was just thinking I needed to call her because I couldn’t remember if we’d said 12 or 12:30 – but when I woke up this morning, the only thing on my mind was surviving the gym.
I know it’s typical to make mistakes – even to be flighty and forget things… but to forget something like this – that really matters… something that is important.
I AM SUCH A LOSER.
In other news… prior to being totally disgusted with my forgetfulness, I was sort of walking on air because Adam got some really cool news today. I don’t want to really go into details because nothing is for sure, but let’s just say his music is in the hands of some REALLY big people right now. I am praying and praying and praying that God opens doors for him because if the rest of the world could see and hear the passion in him – passion for the kids he ministers to – passion for his music – passion to educate… they would be better for it. He amazes me.
So, pray, if you’re the praying type, that something good comes of all this, ok??
🙂 Happy Wednesday!
