Today was good but sad but bad. It started ok. I had afternoon break, which always means a better day. During my break I hung out with two of my friends and one did tye-die. We had some fun doing that, but mostly I was thankful for the time I got to talk with him for the day. I am so thankful for adult conversations and for the care of other counsellors. It always helps a little to know that someone else is praying for you and encouraging you to persevere.
The sad part of the day was that this friend left for the rest of the summer. Did I cry, yes. I feel like I was blessed by him this summer and it’s hard to say goodbye when you know the friendship afterwards will be different (when you don’t see someone every day, things are different).
This was sad, and then to top things off tonight was the worst campfire ever. Another episode with the other girl combined with one of mine disobeying, getting angry, and then throwing a massive temper tantrum. Needless to say, we missed pretty much all of campfire. However, it made me that much more thankful for the other counsellors and staff in the area. One more day!
