i love gifs

Me in the shower.

How I walk into my best friend's house.

Thinking about going to my first SF Giants game (of the season) next month.

When someone tells me women shouldn't be in church leadership.

How I'm sure I look in my hip hop class.

When I read YouTube comments.

What I'm secretly imagining when I have a conversation with my crush.

How I react when my college girls tell me they don't feel pretty.

What I'm hoping for when I want to give someone an epic high-five.

What actually happens.

When I tell a friend I wish I could kiss Colin Firth on the mouth.

Taking 3 days away from work to spend time with my 7 month old godson, Cody.

When someone says they don't like the Harry Potter books.

At a wedding when someone tells me I'm next.

How my team and I react when we get lots of correct answers on Thursday Trivia Nights.

Summer is only a month and a half away.

And when I'm having a bad day, I just remember...

Pray for Boston

Two bombs went off today near the finish line at the Boston Marathon. As of right now, three people are dead and there are more than 140 injured.  
On tragic days like this, I usually feel a combination of sadness, fear, and a desire to help. Even though we live so far from Boston, we can still help by donating to the American Red Cross. Click here if you would like to do so. 
Here's a section of a blog the Red Cross posted about today's events: "Our hearts go out to all those in Boston dealing with this tragedy and our thoughts are with all of those injured. The American Red Cross in Boston has a long history of supporting the marathon with volunteers and first aid stations. Even before the explosion we were assisting with the race and we continue to support runners, their loved ones and the entire community with mental health assistance, food, drinks and blankets at the reception sites. 
In addition, the Red Cross has provided 100 additional blood products to several area hospitals to help meet the needs of those injured at the Boston Marathon. We are also bringing in additional mental health workers for those who will need emotional support in the coming days. The Red Cross will be working in close coordination with officials to determine how else we can best help the community and support emergency workers."
Please pray for: 
* the injured and their families 
* the doctors taking care of them
* the families who have lost loved ones
* the first responders and other workers who are trying to make the city safe again
* the city of Boston as they deal with this grief
 * people to seek God during this time - He can provide comfort, peace, and healing in the most painful of times

I am mesmerized

Seriously, you guys.

Take 60 seconds and just focus on this gif.

Just sit there and take it in.

Imagine the softness under your fingertips.

I guarantee your blood pressure will go down 10 points.
