If I just lay here, would you lie with me, and just forget the world...

Last night, unable to sleep, staring up into the darkness, I wonder what it is that is disturbing my happiness. How could I suddenly feel so mixed up and unable to find peace. Then it hits me, I'm starting two new jobs and moving all in the same week. Wierd how things can effect you so much and you not even realize it. Stress is a funny thing...

Tonight, truth spoken from the mouth of the intoxicated leaves me questioning. A broken relationship that I'm ok without until I see how it upsets others. Can I fix it? Is it worth fixing?

Then an email from across the ocean brings tears to my eyes as I'm overwhelmed with missing my South African who is a million miles away.

Its late and I have to actually wake up tomorrow at a normal time... but I have the feeling that even when I put this technology to bed for the night sleep will illude me.
My mom always said that laying in the dark with your eyes closed is almost as good as real sleep... I guess I'll give it a shot.

This is us learning how to be who we are...

It is the truth
about our identity
we seek and find
in humility
in quiet listening
in gentle forgiveness
in love
