Bread, Tea and Marmalade

Last weekend I went grocery shopping for myself (something I rarely do while I'm at school.) It is something I have always enjoyed because it gives me a sense of independence and maturity that is otherwise absent when I rely on dining hall food. Walking down the isle of the market with my list in hand and a basket slung over one arm is so gratifying to me. I almost feel that I am a real person, not some post-adolescent stuck in the limbo that is university.

Since that glorious shopping trip I have had fresh white bread to eat with marmalade for breakfast every morning. Each morning I sit at my desk, thinking about the day before me, sipping my tea and listening to the sounds of spring that come from my open window. Life is good in those few moments, and I am reminded that no matter how difficult life may seem at the end of the day, God continuously provides a time for me to enjoy His gifts.

  1. Sounds yummy. I so remember those days of going grocery shopping and feeling like a "real" adult and not simply a college kid.

    And, I'm sure you hear this all the time, but it truly, truly, truly goes so, so, so fast. So take it from your "real" adult cousin, enjoy the college time!!! I sure wish I had enjoyed mine a bit more! And I enjoyed it quite a bit.

    Loving seeing your blog!
