This year is off to a good start...after being disconnected from any technology for a week, and then being put through training for another week, and then being left without any internet for another week...things are back to normal (well sort of). Classes have started and are as stressful as ever...but really hopeful as well.
The RAs that are on my staff are amazing. I love them already and we haven't even really known each other for a month yet. They're the friends I'm not sure I would have made, but I thank God that I did! This year is going to be an adventure.
I am uber excited about my floor this year too. The girls are tight and they're pretty much a blessing from God. I am thankful for everything that has been provided for me this year. I can't wait to finally get into the routine of everything so that I can start to figure this year out!! Peace out.


The Most Important People in my Life:

My mom and my sister.
My Grandparents.
My Cousins.

My Family...

A summer of hope. A summer of disappointment. A summer of sadness. A summer of change. A summer that rocked my world. Summer 2007.
I wasn't expecting to come home this summer to divorce. to tension. to hardships. sometimes what you expect is not what you get. Through tears and prayers my life was changing. It's hard to look at the situtation that I was placed in and not be angry at God. but God has never been the brunt of my anger.
He has been my Father. My comfort. My strength. someone who has always stood behind me and helped me get through the tough times. He takes my hand and tells me He's always there.
As someone who has never really gone through suffering before, I can tell you that this has brought me closer to God in a way that I could have never imagined.
It's a tough time. But I know that I'll stand strong and tall by the time that it is over.
In everything God works for the good of those who love Him.
What's a little hardship when He's standing beside you.
