Friday evenings are one of the highlights of my week. It is the time I meet with my Life Group from church online via Zoom. We have been going through John in the bible using some notes I have been putting together.
The group is lively. I often joke with them by thanking them for not looking down on my youth. There is laughter but also a lot of love. One of the group members is battling cancer. The other women in the group bought her flowers, and gave her gift cards one of which was for a nail salon. I have to admit I never would have thought of a nail salon.
Last night was made even better by having a Zoom chat with my friend from Vietnam who is in medical school in a a city just an hour from my city. We talked about her personal statement for her applications for Residency programs.
I have not seen her for five years because she has been busy with Medical School. By the time she graduates from Medical School, she will have her MD and also a Masters in Public Health. We have communicated via email but not in person. It was great to chat with her via Zoom.
It was wonderful to catch up with her. She has accomplished so much since the time she was the shy teenage girl that joined my weekend groups.
Last night was like an emotional oasis during this time of COVID-19. This morning will be Blogger Chat via Zoom and then at noon I will meet with my friend from Vietnam again to go over her personal statement.
It is so important to have moments of being refreshed during this time. What are highlights in your week during this time?
Thank you for reading. God Bless.
