Merry Christmas

I hope everyone who reads this had a wonderful Christmas. I am really not sure who all reads this, so if you do and you don't regularly comment, it would be cool if you made that known sometime. I was just curious how many people actually about my exciting life.

Nonetheless, if anyone has seen the movie 4 Christmases, that was a bit of what my Christmas was like.. except a bit more enjoyable than the one they shared. Through all of the running around I enjoyed seeing everyone and had a wonderful time. I was able to see my brother which was a blessing. 

That is about all there is to sum it up. I would love to hear if anyone else did anything fun. Love you all.

Meet Andrew

This is Lia. She has changed quite a bit since the last time I saw her. 

Chloe and Ella watching the Wizard of Oz! 

Ella is quite the big cousin!

As you might be able to guess, we went to visit them last weekend. I haven't seen the girls since my graduation, that is entirely too long! I simply had to go. We had a lot of fun and I fulfilled my role, as usual, the human jungle gym! I was glad to see them and can't wait to see everyone again for Christmas! 

Oh and did you hear, Josh will be home very very soon.. like I think by the end of the week soon!!!!

What happens when class is cancelled?

I don't know if any of you have ever had this happen back in your college days, but I want to share my little bit of what I call frustrating joy.

I woke up today at 7:30 to be at my 8 o'clock class, which I love going to by the way. I was a little impressed with myself too because I was able to be ready in time that I could walk extremely slow to class and still make it on time, which doesn't normally happen, it is usually a brisk walk to get into class seconds before roll call. Anyway, I got to the building where my class was and saw two other people from the class sitting outside. I was quickly informed that class had been cancelled.

If you have had much or any college experience I am sure that you have had class cancelled, but that isn't my frustration, that was more of the joy part. The frustrating part is a result of the joy. I was so excited that my 8 o'clock class was cancelled that I "excited myself awake" in a sense. It is very difficult for me to get back to sleep now, thus, I am writing here (which I haven't done for a while, so I would like to take this time to apologize). I will be writing soon, I hope you all are doing well. 

Sorry if this wasn't what you expected, I just felt like this was a place where I could share my frustration with y'all.

I can't believe it

No matter how great a person is, their life is just as fragile as the next. I just found out this morning that my cousin, Jonathan, who is my Uncle John's son from his previous marriage, died at work either today or yesterday (I'm not too sure exactly when it happened). 

I just ask that you think of him and his family, John and my aunt Carol Lynn, and lift them up in prayer through this time. 

It's been a while since I have seen him, but every time I saw him he was all smiles and the nicest guy. Just a small reminder of the importance of knowing life really can end at any time no matter who you are.
