Like this email with a random Napoleon Dynamite quote I got from my friend Julie during grad school:
>>> Julie Zeller 1/21/2005 8:55:31 PM >>>
coccyx - a small, triangular bone at the base of the spine.
" your gramma took a little spill at the sand dunes today. broke her coccyx"
Or this picture of my friend Jenna's dog - Augie - in one of his MANY costumes.
Or this one of the three grad students I used to supervise while working at Clemson - they surprised me by having their portraits taken with Santa at Walmart - they knew me all too well about what would make my day.
Anyway, I feel blue tonight. I just got home from shooting a birthday party, which went great and was a lot of fun - but I still just feel down.
Sometimes I find that doubt creeps in unsuspectingly and consumes me with feeling like I'm just not good enough. Ugh - it's a horrible feeling. A lot of the time when I'm feeling it, it is difficult to get myself out of.
So, I often find myself digging into my bad day email folder for this video clip. It's about a 13 year old that calls into a radio station with an incredibly touching message. My favorite bit is at the end when he talks about how God understands and that we just need to run to Him. It's just so dang true - there's so much comfort in knowing how God feels about me, how I will ALWAYS be good enough for Him to love me, and how all He wants is for me to run to Him.
