I *almost* failed

It’s 11:46.  I have 14 minutes to get this post up if I want to not fail my self-inflicted NaBloPoMo challenge.

I knew that this week was going to be a  little more hectic than usual.  I’m currently working with the youth at my church as a temporary youth minister.  I’m also on a committee at church to plan for renovations to the youth area.  This week was a huge undertaking: we got volunteers from our church to sign up for different time slots and we scraped, fixed, sanded, and painted for hours upon hours upon hours.  And it really paid off.  It looks amazing.  (You’ll just have to trust me…I don’t have any pictures right now.)

And tonight, the night before Homecoming, as my dad and I worked to get everything finished for tomorrow…I took a moment to remember not only the memories of the past, but the new memories I formed this week.  I spent time talking with old friends.  I made new friends.  I cultivated relationships where there was previously superficiality.

Have I missed the blog-o-sphere this week?  Is my Google Reader about to explode?  Do I really have 92 unread messages even after taking out all the spam, facebook emails and forwards?  Sure.

But I enjoyed the week.  And I can’t wait for everyone to see the fruits of our labors tomorrow.

11:58.  It’s a sucky post, but I made it.

    Not a “sucky” post at all. Glad you had a good week!

    I agree with Courtney… I think this is a great post as well! Especially since I got to see how all the hard work paid off today! Thanks for reminding me of what is really important… the moment we are in right now! Those emails in our inbox, facebook, and our blogs that we like to keep up can often times wait so we can make new memories with those around us.
