tomorrow morning i officially report for my new rotation as the housekeeping intern. i am not going to lie and say i was jumping off the walls when i first heard that i was hand-picked for this job, but as time has gone on and A LOT of praying about it, i am actually excited for a new rotation. i have LOVED being the dinning hall hostess so much. it was surprising how much at home i felt in the kitchen and with that staff, they will have a REALLY sweet spot in my heart forever. it is such a bitter sweet moment, to leave what i love and enter to what i am very nervous about but it is on like donkey kong.
being an intern and living in the freaking middle of nowhere i am learning what a “simple” lifestyle looks like. i would have said that i lived a very simple life back in charleston, but the lord is kindly teaching me otherwise. the mountains have a way of calming your head and your heart and making you take a step back and gazing at god’s glory. it’s necessary and has a way of just simplify my day. i walk outside see the insane mountains and am like dang, well done god. bammm. how can you beat that? i am understanding why simplicity is a spiritual discipline, but the more i am aware of it, the more i see the good in it.
on another note, i freaking love the holiday season. we have been having so much fun these past couple of weeks. to say that i am into snowboarding is a small understatement. i am getting so much better and love going out and learning more. i am ready for it to just DUMP snow (who would have ever thought that i would be saying that?). between christmas movie marathons, decorating snowmen cookies, and christmas lights (ps colored christmas lights- tacky or awesome? there is a major debate in the intern house), christmas time is good in colorado.
let’s talk about this for a second. sweetest place ever. a giant building of trampolines, foam pits, dodgeball rooms. sweet heaven. thank you erin klamm for being born and choosing this for your birthday celebration!
tis the season my friends!
