I've got a perfect body, cause my eyelashes catch my sweat.

Have you ever cheated death?
I have.
Multiple times in the past few months.
I'm a cautious person.
But even cautious people are vulnerable.
Vulnerable to hurt, pain, sickness, and other objects.

But again, today, I cheated death. I'm not trying to be dramatic. Just grateful.
After the trauma of seeing my beloved towed away from me and crying way too many tears on someone's handsome peacoat, I sat on my bed folding laundry.
As strange as it seems that mundane task made me feel human again.
I felt like I was back inside my body and not living this strange out of body experience.

I sat there folding shirts and pairing socks listening to Pandora as if my day had gone as planned.
The song "Folding Chair" by Regina Spektor came on and I lost it.
Tears all over again.

How lucky I am to be alive.
How lucky I am to have the family I do.
How lucky I am to have the friends I do.
And how lucky I am to have a perfect body from a loving Heavenly Father.

Dear Sir,

today I dreamt of our house that is going to have a yard full of sweet peas, dahlias, peonies, dragon snaps, and honeysuckles.
And in the back maybe we could plant some tomatoes, squash, peas, corn, and whatever else our hearts desire.
I also propose that we have great big trees.
Big enough for climbing, shading, and hammock holding.

I was awoke from my daydream by the sound of a classmate closing their textbook.
It was then I remembered that as for today I have a stack full of books to read and papers to write.
But day I'll have my little garden and my Mister too.

With love,
Your Sabrina Danielle

I believe.

"It is a serious thing to live in a society of possible gods... to remember that the dullest and most uninteresting person you talk to may one day be a creature which, if you saw it now, you would be strongly tempted to worship...All day long we are, in some degree, helping each other to (this) destination. It is in light of these overwhelming possibilities, it is with awe and the circumspection proper to them, that we should conduct all our dealings with one another."

-C.S. Lewis
