TODAY WAS A GOOD DAY!
I kinda feel really lame announcing it on my blog, especially considering my own joke to myself earlier about what a good day was (that joke I will keep private).
Okay, but anyways, my beautiful adorable sister Juli came home to us from Africa today. But she said she wants to go back. My heart sank in a way. I mean, I never ever want to discourage her from doing what God wants her to do, but I have to admit, I was afraid that would happen. I would miss my sister terribly and I would feel completely separated from her if she was far away from me. I missed her a lot these past two weeks even tho I know we don’t really talk all that much. I think I just missed her beautifulness being on the same continent as I am. I don’t know if I could live without her. She was my best friend for years and I still want her to be my best friend. I love her. However, like I said, if it is God’s will, then so be it. I shall accept it without question, but not without tears.
Anyways, on to the happy parts. Um, well, I am thinking that I am going to give myself the title Melanie, Keeper and Protector of domestic peace, felicity and order. I just can’t stand the title homemaker. Its great and all, but there is no strength in that title. I mean, I guess there might be, and I’m not trying to diss women who like the title, I just can’t bring myself to say: Melanie the homemaker. I love that I can be a keeper and a protector. I can protect the peaceful environment of my home and not be a threat to that peace. I want my home to be a peaceful place that my husband can come to and relax as soon as he is home. I want him to be glad to be here. Eventually, I want my home to be a gathering place for others. A place of rest that people are drawn to. For now, I’m still working on everything, but that is the future of my house and home. But I got some stuff done tonight which was good! 🙂
Oh, and I watched the movie Gladiator and I totally LOVED it!! I would totally recommend that movie with the caution of the violence. I loved the values that were presented in that movie. Maximus was committed to an ideal and because of his commitment, Rome was a better place. So, now I just really really want to see Braveheart.
Okay, well, I am getting tired and I need to go to bed, so I better wrap this up. The day is done, and is sufficiently summed up in “Today was good!”
