A Few Thoughts This Beautiful Sunday Morning

I'm sitting here in my comfy bed watching the news before church. I'm still sleepy after a late night last night, but I'm wide awake. So here are a few thoughts...
1. I'm not as young as I used to be. The kids danced the night away at prom last night and were tireless. I on the other hand feel like I was run over by a truck. To be honest though, I don't think it was one night of activity that wore me out; the pace of my life is a little much sometimes.
2. It is a surreal feeling for the South to NOT be called the most racist area of the country. According to the news and a recent study, the Northeast is the most racist now. I think there are still strides to be made here, but there is a harmony. Maybe we learned our lesson through the Civil Rights movement. Our racial harmony is hard won.
3. For $300 million, I would let someone pound the heck out of me too. This boxing match is insane. Insane. People paid $10,000 per person to watch two small men beat each other up. I do not understand.
4. I leave for my annual girl trip in a few days. For 14 years now my husband has given me a few days off with my friends and I cannot recommend it enough. It is so appreciated.
Well, time for church. That is all.
