This is such exhaustion:
Greek Orthodox Church with Rachele, Amolia, and Carolina; incense, Greek, standing in heels, three hours, liturgy, holy bread, altar boys, the Lord's Prayer in four different languages.
Fremont Market with Ben; first date, sun, parking garage, wandering, his crazy forcing me to eat, Greek food, dogs, talking (about family, summer, futures), smiles, so much sweetness, flowers; lying on a blanket, chin against his arm, watching him change his facebook status to something adorable.
Ultimate frisbee with Ben, Cody, Kevin, Rachael, Taylor, Dan, Elliot, Jess, and Sarah; sun, cool dirt, jumping, yelling, wishes to be a six-foot six black man, laughs, gentle frisbee tosses, joy.
Mars Hill with Jess, Clarissa, and Chester; so much joy and substance in Pastor Mark's message, prayer, peace, smiles, singing.
This aching in my throat, dry eyes straining to open after each blink, sore cheeks, and tired feet; these are the signs of a joy filled day.
