Things I’ve Been Learning Lately, vol. XIX


I must say, it’s a little hard to start this post on a happy note like I usually do.  Wherever you are, I hope you’re okay.  I hope you’re safe.  My thoughts and prayers are with France and everywhere else that was rocked by violence this weekend.

Here are some lessons from this past week:

  • Mexican food twice in one weekend is not a bad thing.
  • Apologize when you’ve wronged somebody. Just do it.  It’s the better thing.
  • People always want to pawn off extra food onto young adults who don’t get paid much. It’s nice.  But sometimes the fridge of said young adults doesn’t have enough room.
  • Mama Mary is a treasure and I take her for granted way too often. But I’m working on that.  (blog post about her is forthcoming; stay tuned)
  • If it’s been more than two years since you last saw one of your favorite bands, you’ll do things like consider driving seven hours to see them when they announce another tour in your country. Hashtag desperate.  (also, who wants to see Mumford & Sons in Indianapolis with me in April?)
  • The world is scary sometimes but seeing the world come together in solidarity for victims of violence sure is a heart-warming thing.

  1. My son and daughter in law live in Paris so this past weekend was a little rough for me until I heard they were safe. Many people’s loved ones were not. I can now relate in a deeper way how that feels.
