Today was wonderful. I finally got some much-needed rest last night, and I spent my day submerged in China with Wang Lung and his family in The Good Earth. I reeeeeaaaally wanted to finish today, but that didn’t happen…at least there’s tomorrow 🙂
The best of today was how I spent my evening, gathered together with some friends who are like family to me. Don’t misunderstand me: I love meeting new people, and I LOVE the friends that I’ve made in the last several years (they are truly like brothers and sisters to me), but sometimes, there’s just something about someone who has known you for a looooooooong time. These people who have known me for the majority of my life are so comforting and soothing to my soul, and being in their presence is a salve for any wounds. I am so blessed.
