Wow. Yesterday was one of the greatest day's ever. I know that I seem to say that about a lot of things, but I am very serious about this one. It was the last of the Thursday classes for the semester,and we had a Christmas party for Shining Through as well as Megan coming home from Ireland. It was one busy day.
I was working yesterday from 2-5 at the Marbeck desk when my cell phone started lighting up. It was Megan.!! She wasnt supposed to be home until midnight last night so it was a suprise to hear from her. I didnt answer. Of course, but I did text her to call the front desk. I really wanted to hear her voice. It has been a long time. She called the desk and said they were delayed in New Jersey. So she would get home later. Wow. Just hearing her voice was wonderful. After work I needed to get ready for a Christmas party with Shining Through. We were going to our Music instructor's house in Columbus Grove.
It was a time for a little practice and fellowship. We had the BEST time ever. Carla's house was beautiful. She has a lot... a lot.. of food to eat. Wow. I was able to relax before finals and eat homemade food.
What else would a college kid want!
After the party I ran back (not literally) to the room to wait for Megan. It was a long night, but she finally showed up and we greeted her with open arms. I missed that girl so much. She brings so much joy to my life. She looked exhausted being on two planes, in an airport and saying goodbye to people she got to know over the past 15 weeks. But when she walked in it was all happy tears from the group. We stayed up until 2:30 am talking about everything. How wonderful the experience was, how she loved her internship and just how crazy fast it went!
Waking up this morning was difficult, but seeing Megan back in the Residence Hall was well worth the 2am chat!
I hope you all have a splendid weekend.
