Life is so crazy sometimes…yet so fun and frustrating at the same time. I am nine days away from turning thirty-three, part of me is wondering where time has gone and the other half is wondering what in the world I’ve actually done. Some would look at me and say ‘nothing’ because I’m still single with no children; others would think I’ve conquered the world since I’ve actually been outside of Ripley County, and even the United States. :) I think that I’m balanced somewhat, though I wish I would have decided earlier in life what I wanted to be when I grew up so I would not currently be back in school with no funds and trying to make ends meet…but hey, that’s life and I’ve been very blessed to travel and see a lot of cool stuff in my life. Though the March wanderlust is starting to stir up a little and I’m becoming very antsy…it’s time to get out of Dodge and see something different. To bad Dodge consists of a house (that won’t sell), a job that I have to keep in order to pay the bills for the house (that won’t sell), and school that I am financing out of pocket because the government doesn’t give money freely to single females who have a house (that won’t sell) and a job that actually pays them a little bit of money so they can keep the house. So the cycle continues! :)
Though I complain it does no good…hehe…because the cycle is continuing…but it’s good. I have been blessed!! The above litany may not sound like it but I am blessed. I am blessed BECAUSE I have a house, a roof over my head, and one large enough that my brother’s family has a place to live. I am blessed because during these crazy times I have a job that allows me to keep my house, and provide a roof over my brother’s family’s head. Every once in awhile we get groceries!! (lol…j/k) God has been good to me, sometimes I get frustrated and I tell Him how it is…then He comes by and wraps me in His arms and reminds me how much He loves me. It’s all for His purpose, and He’s apparently molding me into an great being! :)
Things are going good…I have little over a month of school left, so that means four weeks. Then I will have summer classes and take the test in July to see if I get into the nursing program. I’m ready to find out what’s happening with my arm — it’s been numb for three weeks now, and I’m waiting to get into a doctor to see what’s happening. Been going to the chiropractor with no change (less money at $33 a pop), but other than that still a numb arm.
We started a West Point U at church, it’s a group that is going to focus on individuals between the ages of 18-25, and some of us other stragglers that are out of that age group, but since they are the ones that we hang out with we’re allowed to join in and go along with this awesome new thing. I think it’s going to be great…they are going to dig into the word and open up avenues that will allow the students to be focused and get a great foundation in finding out who they are at a crucial point in their lives. It’s going to be a great journey!!
Well that about wraps things up here…I could go on and on today, but alas I have two test I need to get crackin’ on and some chocolate gravy to go eat at Coffee and More!! Life is good…and we take it one step at a time…and eventually I will be able to travel again and go see new places!
