Thank you, thank you, thank you to all who remain here.
My little corner of the web has survived my year long absence, and two years of being unkempt.
I cannot wait wait to fill you all in on my little life lessons and bits you have missed. If you follow me on instagram you have a pretty good idea of what’s been happening in our lives. If you don’t- what are you waiting for? I’m the most interesting human on earth…or not.
Let’s get down to what event has brought me back to this place.
My happy place.
I’m graduating from college! That’s right. My shambled life is starting to get back to a pace this cocaine-free girl can handle without having a conniption.
I’m so excited.
We’re all relieved to be honest.
It’s been one of the most demanding and trial-filled years of my life.
I did it.
Well, He did it. God have been the peace that has calmed my heart every test, every milestone. He has been the one that allowed others to see the good in me. He made my hard work noticed. He guided me through.
He watched over my babies when I wasn’t there. He was with my husband many nights while I worked night shifts, swing shifts, and was at class late into the night.
He gave me this drive inside. The stubbornness to keep going when I wanted to quit. He brought to memory things I had forgotten in the nick-of-time.
That’s my life motto. Long before there was Dori swimming, I have had this word etched into my heart.
And I did, persevere.
I’m sitting here just two days away from my goal. Just two more finals and I’m there. I can’t believe I’m here, this close to the end. My heart is rejoicing and my spirit is longing to be done with this season.
I thank you again for all who have visited this space over and over and saw nothing new, but you stayed. You didn’t give up on me.
Friends, I have so much to fill you in on. I can’t wait! What have you been doing? What blogs should I be reading? I haven’t read a blog in years. What shall we do together? Read? Knit? Mama chat?
I feel like a little kid before Christmas. Eager and full of anticipation. I ‘m ready to open the gift of sharing in the place. It’s time to encourage and love and get real.
