I've always liked that idea, it goes along with God reaching out through the people around you. Why am I going on about this? Simple. I'm pretty sure I had one of those moments last Sunday. My good friend B texted, a very simple "mass tonight?". I hadn't been in about two weeks. I also didn't have any reason not to go. So I agreed, and I went. And it was wonderful. We had a great community when we were in college, but we really are separate from that community now. We're no longer students, so we're welcome, but not really involved. The church we went to was wonderful, and they have a great young adult community. I was excited, really excited to be back at mass, and it instantly felt right, it felt like home. And I've missed that. I've been a bit absent on the faith side of things recently. (note: after the bf and I dwindled on going to mass...we started having problems..not immediately, but soon after. Coincidence? I think not)
B and I went to the young adult dinner social after mass last weekend, and had a great time. We started with this new young adult women's book club last Monday. I'm so incredibly excited. And it's a GREAT book. I love this wonderful group of women already, and I can't wait for tonight's meeting.
It's a little, subtle miracle, but for me it's life changing. I'm feeling more alive than I have in a while. I think I've found what I've been looking for. And all it took was a simple text from a good friend asking "mass tonight?"
