I missed last week. Sorry.
And I’m not sure what to write about this week.
But I had a great weekend. So I’ll just share some bullet points and thoughts about the weekend.
Friday night, a friend went out for sushi and issued an open invitation. Three of us plus her showed up. My mom noticed that my friend had tagged me in a Facebook post and said that she didn’t know I liked sushi. I don’t know when I tried sushi for the first time, but it was definitely in adulthood. I probably would have thought the idea of sushi was disgusting as a kid, but it’s good to try new things, because sometimes you like them.
Saturday morning, I played Pokemon Go and helped some friends move. I watched exactly none of the royal wedding.
Saturday night, I had people over for another one of my retro gaming parties. It was a small crowd, only 10 of us, but we had fun. Sometimes a small crowd is a good thing. I feel more connected to everyone.
This morning, I went to my old church in Davis, because the youth pastor, under whom I volunteered in my early 20s, is leaving the church staff and changing careers after having been there for over two decades. They had a reception for him after the service. It was heartwarming and uplifting to hear so many stories about his work in youth ministry. I shared about how, in addition to having such a heart for the young people of the community, he invested in the lives of the volunteer leaders the same way. It was also inspiring for me to be greeted by so many old friends who are still at that church, and some who came just for that event as I did, almost 17 years after I moved away.
Then I came home and took a long nap, so I hope I’m able to fall asleep tonight. If I’m not, I have plenty of cleaning to do to tire me out.
How were all of your weekends?
