Today: the shortest IBOT post ever.*
I’ve flitted off to the big smoke this week for another round of Bible Camp. And by big smoke I mean Radelaide, which, I’ve been assured from my Victorian Bible Camp friends, is really just a big country town that has a preference for stocking South Australian products on the shelves of shops.
The last week has been HUGE with a capital U. (Because that makes the biggest sound.) But luckily for you, (and me), it’s also been educational.
In a nutshell, this is what I have learnt this week.
- Even when you think you can’t, you probably can.
- Some times though, you actually can’t.
- Saying no is an act of sanity.
- It’s ok to put down the textbook and pick up a novel when your brain has gone to mush.
- It’s not ok to do that when the textbook reading will help you finish the essay that’s due in the next few hours.
- If you’re really angry, your voice will shake.
- The mama Bear thing is REAL.
- Sometimes it’s hard to forgive kids who hurt yours.
- But it’s ALWAYS better. Letting go helps you, and them heal, and stops the victim mentality from taking hold.
- You should never take for granted a child’s ability to walk. Especially an older child. It makes life so much easier.
- Sleep is not for the weak. It’s for everyone.
- Some people will see things in you that you don’t see yourself. Sometimes they’re wrong. Other times they aren’t and that can be a good thing.
- Bel- Air Pizzeria makes awesome pizza. (Not sponsored – Just saying.)**
- Sometimes you’re weird, and sometimes you’re not. It’s mostly to do with the opinion of your present company.
- Some knowledge is useful. Other knowledge — including the etiquette surrounding garlic bread and kissing — may seem weird. See previous point.
- You can almost always find something to blog about.
*May not actually be the shortest. I haven’t checked.
** Would have included photo but that was even dodgier than the skyline pic. #notaphotographer
