nothing profound...

Isn't it fusterating how it's so common that we don't realize how much people mean to us until they're gone??! I've noticed that A LOT in the pasat couple of weeks, with so many of my friends being away at different universities across the counrty, or even on other continents.

I had a sweet conversation with a wonderful friend last night(thank goodness for telephones), and I was reminde of how very blessed that I am to have the people that have been put in my life. I think that SO often I'm caught up in the busyness of life that I don't take the time to reflect on and say thanks for all that I have been given. I need to take the time to go around to these people and say "hey, I'm sorry that I don't tell you this very often, but I appreciate you". I'm really bad at being intentional--- thats something that I have to work on, and have been saying for sooo long... I guess I should get around to it.

For all y'all who are away... you're greatly missed!!

Those are just some of the jumbled thoughts that have been bouncing around up in my head in the past couple of days.
