apology

Hey ya'll.
A good friend has called it to my attention that in my last post, I sounded really discontent. With life in Florida. I was basically a whining, ungrateful hoser. (they didn't say it quite like that but they could've). So, please forgive me for whining and being discontent. Thanks. Apologies always look a little awkward in writing. But "I'm sorry" isn't really appropiate when you've sinned.
I really am grateful I live in Florida. Most of the time. I do wish it wasn't quite so flat, but that I can blame on 6 summers spent in NC. I can't say I appreciate humidity, but I'm glad that we dont have the constant dry winds of wyoming. Reasons I'm glad I live in florida:
1)the atlantic ocean
2)good friends
3)a ballet studio that seeks to glorfy God
4)the hills--it is hilly out here in west fl, believe it or no.
5)the chance to plant a new church
6)sunshine in winter
7)oranges, strawberries, and other things that grow here
8)the beach
9)being a day or 2's drive from NC and VA
10)the 50degree cold front that came through:)
I wasn't going to post today, but felt that was called for.
HEY the stars will be bright and sparkly cause of the cold. :)

I'm convicted! You don't know how many times I've complained about the cold weather here and wishing that it was only a 50 degree cold front! So as I forgive you, please forgive me ;).

Brittany said...

joel sczebel said...

damaris said...

i'm around. haha not really. i'm leaving in 5min actually...

who is this 'twinster' i supposedly sound like??

jake said...

you say like one comment about hating and florida and then spend the rest of the time whining about shin splints and you're convicted about complaining about florida? weird...i'm not saying the people who mentioned it are wrong (so nobody get mad at me) i just think it's kind of twisted. But maybe I just think that because I'm from VA and agree w/ you.

well, i wasn't complaining about shin splints. they're just a fact of life to me. and it was on my mind so i was talking about them and then realised that most people probably didn't even know what it was.
the issue with florida is a root issue, the fact that very often i wish i was living somewhere with mountains (not just vancouver i'd take almost anywhere haha). sadly, i complain about living here ALOT. but God's put me in flat florida so i'm working on not complaining about it. thanks for the comment anyway.

damaris said...

**oops, that was me. i meant to say my name but it did that instead.

Brittany said...

I have an idea of what shin splints are. But I do admit that you sound a little down most of the time.

joel sczebel said...

I get shin splints when I play basketball. I jump and it feels like the front of my shin is peeling off. gross. painful. I dislike it.

joel sczebel said...

I feel like playing basketball.


oh. weird. My foot is numb. hahaha. nice.

Delian said...

I officially don't like shin splints just cause of what Joel just said...ewww!

Brittany said...

I have enough problems as it is. I don't need to be hearing about shin splints!

joel sczebel said...

OH come on.... Shin splints are really kind of cool. We should start a club or something. hahahahaha (that was very sarcastic)

Delian said...

A shin splint club... uh no ;).

joel sczebel said...

no. I think not.

Delian said...

Isn't that what I just said?? lol.

Brittany said...

Don't say LOL! Hahahah. j/k
