Random Thoughts Over the Past Few Weeks...
I usually don't do weekend recaps so I will sum it up in a couple of sentences! I didn't really do much for the 4th of July, I spent time with my family and Darrick's family! I did get to see fireworks, TWICE...I'm a storybook romantic and a few years back I always said that I wanted to go to the fireworks with my boyfriend..so Darrick makes sure I get to see them every time they have them!
(Fireworks Friday night...it was a little chilly)
Excuse the No Makeup and Darrick's Hoodie Sweatshirt LOL!
(This is Darrick and I in the car...every time I tried to take our picture he licked his tongue out at me!)
-On Wednesday, I went walking with my friend Denise around her housing complex! We walked about 3 1/2 miles! It felt good to exercise and have girl talk while doing it! I forgot to take a picture of Denise and I walking (I had planned to blog about it in advance but I totally forgot!) So here is a picture of Denise (stole it from her facebook page)...my legs are still sore but we said we are going to continue next week!
-So I am in Term 2 of Graduate School. Its going pretty well, I just haven't really had the focus lately! I'm going to finish this term strong, but I guess since its the summer I have been wanting to chill out instead of doing school work! I know it will pay off in the end and I will thank myself for continuing through the summer, but right now I REALLY don't feel like doing school work! I have a paper due next week and I need to start on it like...YESTERDAY!!!
-Blogging has really helped me in the past few weeks. Not that I needed someone to talk to or anything but I needed just the therapy of writing...I guess its the release that I needed. I was reading a blog the other day and the blogger talking about making friends after college and how different it is from when you are in high school and college...and I could really relate. Some changes were the changes that I needed and some changes I really don't like...but I guess this is something everyone goes through at some point in life.
-Being Grateful...Man where do I start on this topic! I have had so many reminders in the past couple of weeks to make sure I THANK GOD FOR EVERYTHING! Its so easy to get caught up in our daily routines and forget to simply say THANK YOU LORD. A couple of weeks ago at church my mom was crying and thanking the Lord for everything, and I held my gratefulness (is that a word) in but I too understood how she felt. One of my office mates are having health issues and it really just came out of nowhere and I just prayed and prayed for her because I wish whatever is going on...the Lord heals her..He is the ULTIMATE HEALER and I know the issues that the doctors cant find He knows all about them!
Ok, I'm done with my ramblings for the day! Hope you enjoy reading my thoughts...
