I can't believe you're here and gone, yet again. I can't believe I'm here in the same position I was last week - at the beginning of a new week. I can't believe how quickly time flies.
But most of all, I can't believe how utterly pleasant you were this week.
You weren't extraordinary, or out of routine...you didn't provide any uncharted plans or exciting adventures. But that's what I think I liked about you most.
You didn't surprise me with copious amounts of calculus homework or desperate last minute tasks.
I was sick, but you had a nap and amazing worship music to carry me through the day.
I anticipated a long, strenuous day at work, but instead, I ended my day doing the chicken dance with my Japanese students.
That was the best.
There were fresh strawberries from Fuji-san's farm in Kyushu, and lots of tea. There was quiet time with Jesus, and gap year planning.
You definitely carried a to-do list - like always - but today it didn't seem as unmanageable.
And at the end of it all, there was brilliant sunset - leaving me speechless, yet again.
You were pleasantly simple and easy. And I needed that today, Monday.
