The Lord has blessed me beyond measure this year. I am so thankful for the life I have been given and I know that He is always watching out for me. Here is the thing. I want to tell you some things I am thankful for and lets get real, if I was to write everyone and everything I was thankful for this post could be like 200 pages long. The people I mention in this have impacted my life SO SO SO much during this semester.

This verse is applicable to every single person I love dearly:
"I thank God every time I remember you"
Phillipians 1:3

I am Thankful for:

Family: My family supports me through tick an thin, they support me in WHATEVER I do. They are seriously the most wonderful people in the whole wide world. I am blessed.

Emily Phillips: My Best friend in the entire world. She is an incredible roommate, friend, encourager and sister. I cannot even consider Emily only a friend anymore… I consider her a sister. She has always meant so much to me, but within the last 2 years she has meant more to me then she will probably ever know. I love love love love love love her.

Whitney Moutray: It hard to imagine I have only known Whitney for only a year. She is literally one of my very best friends and there are no words to tell you what an incredible influence she has been on my life. I am so excited to see her every day of my life next semester and for the next two years.

Amanda McAdams- This friendship is the biggest blessing from God. Have literally prayed for a friendship like this for years. We are pretty much soul mates. If you hang out with us for like 2 minutes you will see we are the same person. J She has been such an incredible mentor to me this semester and there is literally no way I could have made it thought this semester without her loving words and kind heart. She is such a wonderful influence in my life and she has impacted my life. Forever.

Sarah Boleslawski- I have been blessed to have a class with this semester and she has been such a great blessing on my life. She spoke for me at second vote and she encourages me to do my best all the time. I am so so so excited to continue getting to know her better!

Heather Lowery & Kenli Viertel - LOVE LOVE LOVE them. They seriously have been such a HUGE blessing on my life. During pledging they watched my back all the time and they are always there for me if I need them. God knew exactly who would be the perfect bigs for me, they challenged me, pushed me and encouraged me no matter what the task at hand was!

LAST but NOT LEAST- All The girls on my Hall- They have been there with me thorugh thick and thin and they are some of my best friends. I am so excited that God blessed me with such a solid group of girls that I can rely on!

Work in Progress Continued

So, now I can update you on my life that things are more concrete... Sound good? okay here we go-

School- This is bold, and slightly unexpected for those who know me but I am CHANGING majors, yep. No more nursing for me! I am going to be a Family Studies Major. I know that a lot of yall are like whattttt is that? Well, in my case I want to be a Child Life Specialist. Child Life Specialist "promote effective coping through play, preparation, education, and self-expression activities. They provide emotional support for families, and encourage optimum development of children facing a broad range of challenging experiences, particularly those related to healthcare and hospitalization."
This basically means I am helping children with chronic diseases, or children going into surgery understand why this is happening and try to help them when they have questions or need someone to talk to. So, thats wild. I think it will be SUCH a blessing and I am excited to begin on this endeavor!

Life- Well, I mean... I guess my life is goooddd :) I am just blessed to be ALIVE :) on a random note, I got some blood work done over the weekend and got a platelet count.... drum roll pleaseeeee-----
472,000 platelets
yep. you heard me right. God is SO good to me.
and actually my doctor wants them rechecked over thanksgiving to make sure they go down a little. What a strange thing.

Prayer- Pray school, I want to finish strong and keep working hard even though an end to nursing is in sight. Pray for health. Me, and so many others have been getting sick, so pray for big immune systems the next few weeks. Lastly pray for someone you may not know very well, or someone who is without a loved one this holiday season, pray that God gives them peace and happiness during this season :)

Let me leave you with this-

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light."
-Matthew 11:28-30

Work in Progress

Well.... When I though of this title for my blog I was really meaning to talk about my craft that I did today.... but really... it applies to me as well. I am always a work in progress. God is never done working inside of me. I will explain more when things are more nailed down. But for now lets just talk about my craft!

I am going to a baby shower this weekend for one of the most wonderful people in the world's daughter. It is kinda strange why we are friends and kinda strange that we are so close, but she is such a blessing in my life and I am so glad that we know each other.

My craft- Baby Gift set. yep. Gift SET hahah.. all I have done are the bibs. Let me tell you that it was the best feeling ever to bring out my sewing machine. It has been 6 week. DO YOU HEAR ME? 6 WEEKS!!
