Dancing lessons

"Don't you think, Mr. Hyde, that a lady who dances can go to heaven?"

"I do not see how a lady can go to heaven unless she dances."

—John Hyde (as quoted by E. G. Carre in Praying Hyde)

Yesterday I unknowingly wore two completely different socks: different colors, different patterns. I laughed when I saw them on the bed after taking them off.

The wedding was beautiful and fun. Going to a wedding alone is not on my list of favorite things to do, yet I stayed much longer that I usually do and enjoyed the celebration. It was nice.

It occurs to me that, on the whole, I have much more trouble celebrating than I do facing the tragedies of this life. Attending a funeral alone would be perfectly normal, but weddings and parties are difficult. Simply hard. If God sends me a helper one day, she will help me celebrate. And I pray that I can help her be strong.

Today was quite restful. By and large, I've enjoyed how I've spent it. It's how days off ought to be.

The rain felt good.
