I thought I’d made peace with and reflected enough on this tour yesterday in part I of this post. But it turns out there’s a bit more to be said.
Do you know what happens when I get surprised by something? Yeah, I don’t know either or rather I didn’t know until last night. I thought that I was going to eat with my two DIVOs, but it was actually a surprise going away party! I honestly never suspected or had any idea that that was going to go down.
It turns out that I shake when I am surprised. My hands get all trembly and the girl who prides herself on prompt decision making has no idea what to do. The chatterbox who drums up conversation goes silent. Can I sit down? was the first thing I remember saying followed by constant repetition of I had no idea…I- I didn’t expect this.
It took me a good 10 minutes to stop shaking. I asked someone to hold my flowers and I held my hands together under the table until I could get my act together. I don’t think I ever fully recovered. I pretended to be myself for the rest of the night, but my heart was too full to actually relax. I just kept hearing that Teddy Pendegrass song When Somebody Loves You Back. And maybe that sounds weird when discussing people from work, but I don’t think it is.
What an amazing ending to my tour. I am speechless (for once) and crazy thankful and will leave it at that. Love you all!
To be loved and be loved in return
It’s the only thing that my heart desires
Just appreciate the little things I do
Oh, you’re the one who’s got me
Keep on liftin’, liftin’ me higher
So good, good lovin’ somebody
And somebody loves you back
It’s so good needin’ somebody
And somebody needs you back
