So I don’t really know what to write about this week, isn’t that sad I have only had this blog for month and I am already out of things to talk about. Everything this week has seemed so rushed; Saturday we (the youth group) had a car wash to raise money for Central Dallas Ministries’ After School Academy, which Rachel Embry is the director of. It went great, we raised a good amount for them and we were impressed with how many students, parents, and kids showed up to help and work hard. Sunday flew by as usual and then on Monday I went to Austin for my cousin’s funeral. It is weird to go to a family member’s funeral when I had only met him maybe 2 or 3 times in my life, of course I was sad for my family but I can’t say that it really affected me. What was sad was that the priest who did his funeral didn’t even know him and so he had nothing personal to add or comfort to provide, the priest just did a common Catholic funeral. It was unnerving just to think about that after this man had lived 30 something years all that the priest had to say at this funeral was that he liked to make people laugh. Not that making people laugh is a bad thing but I mean really, that’s not what I want said about me. Anyway, after that day on the road I feel like I am behind in everything, but praises that I am not stressed yet because it is work that I have a passion to do. I guess that’s it.
Oh, and thanks Joe for coming all the way from Florida to help us wash cars and not even get any pizza.
