a glorious siesta

I've been staring at the empty New Post page for about twenty minutes now. I honestly don't know how to even begin to describe the generosity that's been lavished on me the past few weeks. My heart is overflowing with gratefulness. Some wonderful new friends took me on vacation with them. We spent a few days in Los Angeles and then headed to the Mexican Riviera on a seven-day cruise.

I had an absolutely incredible time! I had so much fun with my friends---soaking in the sunshine, zip-lining in Cabo, eating way too much, and laughing more than I have in a long time.

And you know what the craziest part is? I'd met my friends less than a month before the trip!

I'd been dreaming of an exotic vacation for months most of 2009. And God answered that silent prayer of my heart in the most unexpected way possible.

It was just the siesta I needed!
