I am still a little star struck. It was amazing seeing and hearing my favourite television characters in the flesh! Cast of Glee, you are a guilty pleasure! I laughed, danced and sang! I didn't cry, but I am pretty sure the love-struck teenager next to me did...point of clarification: not my sister, Laura.
Leaving Rylyn for about 8 hours was difficult. Not because I was worried about her care, but I know sometimes when she cries, it is because she wants me. Only me. We both survived and I had a day to remember with my sister. I didn't feel anxious until the show was over and we were en route home from Toronto on the GO Train. Mainly because I called home to Chris and could hear Ry crying in the background. Nonetheless, I felt like I accomplished something that day. I look forward to my next afternoon off just as much as I looked forward to coming home from this one.
5 Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand.
New King James Version (NKJV)
6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; 7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
-When anxious I am helped by a prayer my mom used to have hung in the bathroom. "God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference." I memorized it young and recite it often. It is one of the wisest things my parents unknowingly taught me.
