I had dinner with a friend I went to high school with, and then we went to see a movie.

I'm totally spent. I think this week has been longer, and has taken more of a toll on me than I thought.

I'm wishing I could rest for the weekend.

Instead I'm going to a wedding where I'll know hardly anyone who isn't in the wedding party. Cause what I really need right now is the sort of event where you celebrate with your friends. I need an event like that to underscore how lonely I've been feeling.

I'm staying in the big city north of here tomorrow night, sharing a hotel room with my mom.

We'll be home sometime on Sunday, and then, then I'll need to build a bed frame, so that the unpacking can start in earnest.

I'm praying it will rain again soon. I could use the washing clean these days.

I'm praying for peace, for a heart that is somehow able to quiet and rest. For myself, and for so many others I care for.

I'll definitely be praying as I can totally relate. I was maid of honor in a wedding where I literally knew no one - including the groom - other than the bride.

It was seriously the most bizarre wedding experience I've ever had (especially since a week earlier I'd been maid of honor in Mel's wedding in Czech and knew probably 1/3 of the people there!) and once she and the groom left for the honeymoon I was like what in the world am I doing here!? LOL.

So I will definitely be praying.

Wish you could come hang out here - they all went to the cottage and I stayed at the flat. We could have tea and sit and chat!

Praying for you!
