Okay, now I realize that most of you come to this site for your daily dose of absolute hilarity. And while I try to be funny for you, from time to time I just need to be blah. So, this post is an emotion dump.
First of all, I leave Kansas in just five short days. I can't believe it. This summer has flown by so fast. I'm very sad to leave. I have fallen in love with these kids, their parents, the church, the youth minister and his family, and even the city. I can't imagine this being the end. These relationships are so important to me. Two months is just enough time to really build a deep realtionship and now it's time to say bye.
Next, I am broken hearted. I have loved Mr. C for a long long time. I finally got the guts to tell him how I felt, but sadly the feelings we're not mutual. All of this happened the day before camp, so I had to go be fun and silly for six days instead of dealing with it. I'm still pretty sad, although I do feel a certain amount of peace because it's all out on the table and I can move on.
And last, within the next year I am going to have major surgery. This surgery will change my life. I know it's going to be a positive thing in the end, but it is a huge weight hanging over my head. It's hard to hold all of this in, but I'm not ready to spill all the details right now.
I'll end with a picture of the cutest kids ever. I know you can't really see them that well, but this will have to do.
