Over at Chatting at the Sky, Emily Freeman concludes each month with a list of things she’s learned. This month, she’s invited her readers to do the same. In no particular order, here are 10 things I learned in June:
1. I like orange-chocolate chip scones. Thank you, Crust.
2. Painting a bacon-themed lampshade for a friend’s daughter is both easy and fun. I hope she likes it!
3. I can, in fact, make medical-related phone calls and not die or sound completely stupid. I know, right? In related news, I can successfully relate my medical concerns to a new doctor and somehow blurt out that I am a writer in the middle of it. Because she shared that a former relationship never could have been when her boyfriend mailed her a postcard from Alaska which began “Deer” Gertrude (name changed). I felt her pain.
4. Apparently, I am capable of sharing my deepest childhood trauma, but I am not capable of keeping track of library DVDs. Well, just one library DVD, which no one even watched. Sad, but true.
5. Walmart brand diapers are never worth it. Just say “no.” Enough said.
6. God really does redeem stories and fulfill dreams. I totally chickened out on introducing myself to Holley Gerth at Allume last year (where I probably would have said something intelligent and memorable like, “Oh, I just love your writing, and you’ve completely changed my life!” It wouldn’t have been awkward for her at all…) Since then, I’ve worked on her God-sized Dream Team and become part of an amazing community that has enabled us to get to know each other as real people. And then she came to Michigan, and we got to do this:
7. When you step out in faith, God meets you there, and He provides the people you need when you need them.
8. When you share your story, it helps to heal other people, give them hope, and make them feel less alone.
9. Once a package of peanut butter M&Ms is open, I cannot be trusted to leave them alone. Or share them.
10. Anamaniacs is just as hilarious now as it was when I was in high school. Pinky, are pondering what I’m pondering?
And there you have it: 10 random things I learned in June. I hope you’ll keep reading after my confession of them!
How about you? What did you learn in June?
