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
