I guess the most positive thing I can think of today is that the Pittsburgh Steelers won the Super Bowl on Sunday. What a game!
I made pepperoni pizza and some awesome queso. It was just my husband & I, so I didn't want to make too much. It was just right! And the pizza was great. Didn't make any dessert. Would have loved a brownie, but with just the 2 of us, they get dried out before we can finish them.
Had a great time twittering during the game. Three months ago the word twitter didn't exist in my vocabulary. Now? At almost the same time yesterday two of my twitter friends sent out different articles on where twittering is in the scheme of things. Mainstream or not and when will it become mainstream. Just because a bunch of celebs have @ addresses doesn't mean I'm going to follow them. Doesn't interest me. I want to stay connected with other Christian women (and men). It's great to hear what Christian bands are doing, too. I have made some fast friends through twitter. It is a part of my day. A way to stay connected and encouraged. I may even meet 3 of them at the Rock & Worship Road Show in Dallas on April 3rd. From Little Rock to Amarillo to San Antonio. We met through MM Slob roll and continue to stay connected pretty much every day.
The first time I was on the MM site to watch the concerts streaming live. This guy was telling us to twitter everyone we knew & tell them to join us in the chat room. What is twitter I asked? The rest is history. It's not about the numbers to me, it's about the connection. It's about being lifted up in prayer when needed. It's about every day struggles and encouragement from people I've never met. It's about our kids, our families, our jobs (or lack thereof). It's one of the positive forces in my life.
The funny thing about twitter? My husband thinks I've lost my mind. He has finally accepted my twittering. Kind of like he's accepted my recovery! My daughter just thinks I've lost my mind. I think her concern is that I will twitter someone she knows and embarrass her. She doesn't twitter (as far as I know) but she has a few friends that do (because they're in the dc*b). I promised her I wouldn't follow their twitters. I can respect that. Our worlds overlapping is just too much for her, I guess!
Keeping my spirit up while job hunting is hard some days. I would much rather be working than working to find a job! It doesn't pay much! I know so much is my own doing. I broke that trust that employers put in me and it's hard for them to accept that I am a recovering addict. I have to prove it, but they still don't understand. I know God has the perfect place for me, but I'm so impatient! I must stay vigilant in my recovery and my walk with God. His hands are always there, whether I can feel them or not. Keep me in your prayers. Thanks.
