need to sleep part 2 but im really bad at sleepin on time
Gallup, New Mexico
and here i am again.. on a school night...blogging at 1 freakin am. what the heck is wrong with me??? every year i blog. every year i do it after midnight..i had ALL WEEKEND. what was i doing? writhing in the pain of congestion, runny nose, and watery eyes. what the heck is up with my allergies in new mexico??? i have never had them before! geez.
so ..im saddened that i have not kept up my weekly journaling (i did want to do it daily..which i could....there is no excuse...i have no family or kids to take care of..ive got to learn to manage my time much more effectively. ) but alas another month has passed! whaaaaaaaaaaaaa
ok quickly since i should sleep soon...
yesterday i feel as if God is showing me the family He has given me here. I went to eat lunch with Uma and Val at the new indian restaurant in town (yes Gallup has an indian restaurant!...) I didn't feel well because of my allergies. I was not up to conversation. We then went shopping at the mall...i was not looking forward to this...but it was a neat excursion to the Rio West mall! Before we left for the mall i remember sitting by Val in the indian restaurant and thinking, "i love you," as she was talking to uma. its funny how close you can get to a person and then when you are in public you think, "thats my girl!" Wow. how cool. But shouldn't I feel that towards every person i see..isn't that how the Big Guy sees us? ... anyway when i pulled up to the mall val approached me in my car and gave me a huge hug while i was still in the car! its SO awesome to experience her hugs...when only a year ago that was not what she did! how cool! she then bought me some earrings at the mall. while we were shopping uma and val were so FREAKIN cute...they kept looking for stuff for me to wear. uma first came up to me with a pretty purple dress...and val was like, "if she wears that all the men will fall over!" we then went to the junior section and uma found a summer outfit for me and val kept pointing out shirts that she thought would look good on me! we then went to the jewerly area. val kept asking what earrings i would wear, when i picked out a pair she said, let me buy it for you! it was about this time that the following thoughts came to me, " these are my older sisters...Gods starting to fulfill some of my hearts desire to have an older sibling to watch over me and take care of me..!!!!" I was touched. I told both of them this and they smiled. Val responded with, "Bible says that if you leave your family for Christ, He will give you a family 100 fold of the family you originally had." Is that what you are doing Big Guy? I hope so. it felt so good to be taken care of...for others to pamper me and to say, "oh this would be cute on Nupur! or how about this?" It was such a feeling of validation. Big Guy continue to bring me a family...a family that will love me and lift me up and support me. please. saturday was great!!! it felt so cool to have 2 older sisters to watch and support me. too cool!
there is so much more to write about that has happened in the past month. my first year anniversary with Big Guy!!!! God threw me a birthday party that day. It was such an amazing day!
Lindsay and I's Spring Break trip to Southern New Mexico must also be chronicled.
