Yay!!! school is basically done. I have one more online final to take and then I am DONE! Just one more semester to go before I graduate. I feel good about this semester b/c I gave it all I had. I had a moment this morning in practice where I realized that I am living my dream. I am doing the very thing I dreamed about doing for 2 whole years. What an amazing feat. I managed cheerleading well, worked hard in school, and managed to work part time. I am amazed at how I did it all! I love my life and what I am doing so much. I feel that I am blessed. Granted there are periods of time where I am struggling b/c this life is tough...but it is what I need! Living in this moment b/c it may never come again!!!

I am so excited that I got to visit with some of my cousins this morning that I have not seen in years. It was Karen's birthday and so her brothers and sisters were in town. We had brunch this morning and then climbed to the top of Kennesaw mountain. It was so refreshing to be around family. I really like being so close to family. I am not used to having them around but I LOVE it. I am blessed with a great family. This morning I realized how blessed I was to know so many great people. I am proud of where I come from.

The end if finally in sight. I am burried this weekend in my studies hoping to finish strong. It has been a long semester. It has flown by but it has felt long in some instances b/c I am just ready to be done with school. I've done the best I can do so I am going to be happy with that. I just need to get through this next week which is chaos. By this time next week I can breathe a sigh of relief. Yay for finals!!!!!!!!

"When the gusty winds blow, if we know that people care about us, we may bend...but we wont' break."- Fred Rogers

I read this today and thought it was a good description of how things get sometimes. If we have a deep understanding of who we are and what brings meaning to our lives then the storms of life won't destroy us. It also helps to have people in your life that care about you. Sometimes you have to step back and evaluate things. You may have seasons where you feel so alone especially when the gusty winds blow but that my friend is when you develop an inner strength. I'm learning this myself!
