Another library day, between running around dropping off kids and remembering to pray and be grateful.
There are these two teenagers at my table in the library - at first I was irritated by their chatting, but they’re so in like, it’s completely impossible to hate them. I wonder if I’ve ever had a romance like that. I sort of skipped over the whole “teenage romance” phase, so I’m not really sure I’ve ever been quite as I-need-to-be-in-physical-contact-with-you-every-second, puppy-dog-eyes-lost-in-love as these two.
Who knows, though! It could still happen!
In other more sobering news, a student at one of my kids’ (c-) schools committed suicide today, and I’m not sure what I can or will say to c- when I see him. I really hope the child's family will be okay. I wish life couldn’t seem to get so difficult and intolerable that anyone could do this. I don’t know how can I make that better. I wish every child and person could feel and be around enough love to know that everything will be okay.
M- and I are going to see a comedy show tonight at Paname Art Cafe, a new English-language stand-up program called “Funny Bones”.
To be quite honest I don’t have very high hopes for this show- I’m just wishing it will be decent enough that M- can enjoy a few laughs. I really wanted to see the “French Fried” finale last Tuesday, but we couldn’t make it.
Ramadan Day 2 is going well. It’s only three in the afternoon, but I feel great and energized. I’m trying to remember to be more patient with people, and more kind. I feel like I often think about what people can do for me, and how I can benefit from them. I’m really trying to reverse that. I want to start thinking about what I can do for other people, and why their lives would be better with me.
Starting today! M- is gonna get his pants charmed off; he’ll never know what him!
All the love,
