So… apparently coffee makes me faint. I made Mallory and Daniel keep me from drinking coffee, poor them. You shouldn’t get between me and my coffee. So for the next week, (not counting this morning, woops) I am taking a break from coffee and caffeine of any sort. It is going to be a hard week. Hi, my name is Brynne and I am addicted to coffee.
This past week has been absolutely nuts. I love every minute of the road and the best part for me is meeting the contacts. I wish we got time to really invest in these students and know everything there is to know about them, but the little time we get is awesome too.
Not for the first time, I started to see my faults this week. Living with the same four or three people I thought would make me see what I don’t like in them, but what I have found is it makes me see what I love about them and what is ugly on me. I thought I had a pretty good grapse on humility, not that I was completely there but that I was working towards it, but I need ten thousand times more humility. And I have give so little grace. This week, ironically, we were pushing the bracelet DVD grace and that word just kept sticking out to me. I don’t show it often enough, even if it is just a silent reaction to something I still am not looking first at my own faults and then at the faults of the situation. I am really good about pointing out specks, and I do not like it. Eugene always wrote blogs about discoveries like this and he is right something like this does point out your own faults. I hope that it will just provide continued growth for me on the tour, and that my teammates will be able to provide me with the grace that I need.
Other than lessons, I love my team. Mallory and Daniel are just two amazing people and I love every moment with them. We are rarely serious, but they just totally take the stress away of messed up accounting, having to be in three places at once, and phone calls from Jay. We had an unexpected turn this week in our team, and we are praying for the results of that, but I think we are solid enough to still see amazing things happen in La-Tex.
Oh and Friday night we spent at the sketchiest hospital in Dallas, I got pumped up with drugs, and then the contact told I was singing while I was sleeping. Videos to follow if I can get them from Mallory’s camera.
