Hooray for Awesome friends!!!!

Yes…I’m talking to you ‘Best friend in the whole wide world'(a.k.a Loreanne) and you, Kenny… and you, Mr. Wheaton Guy. I love you all and thank you so much for encouraging me and being such a great support during my time of trial. I pray that God will bless you all just as much as you have been a blessing to me.
Today hasn’t exactly been productive or anything…but it hasn’t been the worst either. I got up this morning and tried to wake up my brother. He didn’t wake up or get ready in time so I left for work without him. Tough luck! So naturally, because we weren’t a carpool anymore, I couldn’t use the carpool lane and traffic surrounded me. But I still got here in plenty of time and I took care of most of my work and aimless tasks early in the day.
So the rest of the time until now…I spent making another personally hand made thank you note. I love making thank you notes and leaving them for someone unexpecting to find. It’s sad that so many people go un-thanked everyday for going out of their way or doing something nice. Like my best friend last night invited me over to get away from my brother. And we had a great pampering party. It was great to feel girly for a change. I went home that night and spent two hours thanking God for my awesome friends.
I also had a long talk with my brother yesterday in the car on the way home from work. It was a great relief to get all of my thoughts off my chest. The sad part is that my brother revealed to me some more VERY discouraging details regarding my family members that thicken the situation; fortunatly though…there is a good side to this, I know that God has not only made Himself available for me to seek counsel…but He has also provided some great friends that I know I can count on. Also, the best part is, when I was relaying the story to Loreanne last night, I realized that it wasn’t me talking to my brother in the car…it was all God. There is pretty much nothing better than allowing God to speak through you. And the reason I know it wasn’t me is because I’m not sure my words would have been as quick and wise as the ones that I said. I thank the Lord that He spoke through me and gave me the right words to say to my brother. And I can only pray now that he has taken them to heart.
Another thing I am excited about is the fact that I get to leave in 15 minutes to go home and get ready for the A’s game with Q! Yippi! I’m so excited!
But one more thing before I go…alas..I have another semi-dilema. Dug, a friend from a while back talked to me today and he wanted to know if he could crash at my place Wed night. He’s driving back to school in San Diego and the drive is long. I’d feel so bad if I turned him away. And I know my parents wouldn’t mind, because they have always said that our doors are open…that it was part of our ministry as a family. But, just because they are away I made sure that I called them to make sure before I go telling him it’s ok. Anyhow, I’m not sure what to tell him, because I don’t want him getting the wrong impression.
To be perfectly honest, I almost hope that he gets to stay the night because my brother doesn’t want him to. I really want to prove my point about how I felt when Heather stayed the night. Of course, Dug wouldn’t be sleeping in my bed…I mean, I doubt I’ll even be letting him set foot in my room…but you get what I’m saying, right? When I informed my brother that I was calling mom and dad to ask them about it…he practically blew up! haha. I know it’s mean (Lord forgive me)…but com’on…let’s be honest here. haha.

    Yay for friends! yay for me! 😛
    I hope the game was fun!
    Do you really think it’s appropriate for Dug to stay when your parents aren’t there? Or are they coming home before he gets there? really want to prove my point about how I felt when Heather stayed the night. Of course, Dug wouldn’t be sleeping in my bed…

    Thanks so much for your help! Just so you know, I prayed about it after this journal entry and decided that I was being silly by thinking I could get revenge on my brother like that. I told Dug when he called that I didn’t think it was a good idea. I knew that the whole time, I was just letting my anger get to me. *sheesh* I’m a dork. haha.
