Happy New Year
There are many things I am grateful for for the past year. I may not be able to enumerate them all, but deep in my heart I am very thankful for all the blessings God had showered upon me and my family. I hope and pray that year 2007 will be more fruitful for all of us. For my first prayer for 2007, after thanking Him for a wonderful year, I asked God for humility. I asked him to help me let go of all the bitterness and pain in my heart. I lifted up everything to Him... As Janzel wrote on her blog, "...let Him be in control."
I think my sweater says it all...
I also want to share a message sent to me by a good friend of mine..."A new year is a beginning of fresh and beautiful things awaiting for you. Learn from your past mistakes, forgive yourself and others. Take the plans you have today and travel to tomorrow's joy with hope all the way..."
i'm so glad!!! this semester is over.
i've never been so stressed..
now i can sleep normally..
whew. it's been a very tough semester but i'm so glad i made it through.
i got an A
in Child Development
and a B
in Nursing 101.
i don't mind getting a B in Nursing 101 because i know i gave it my all. it wasn't like i was slacking off. i think everyone else in the class got a B, or if worse a C.
i haven't done my Christmas shopping yet. maybe tomorrow, or next week perhaps. i am also off from work starting the 20th. my boss is going to Jordan for their annual vacation. so yeah.. i'm really happy we are now on break. woohoo.
i miss everyone. i hope y'all are doin great.
i'm thinking of moving to multiply. what do you think? hmmmm... but i just can't leave blogger. hmmm. maybe i'll keep both. :) pictures are uploaded in my multiply.
hello everyone!!! I'm back... I miss blogging. I've been very busy these past few months, that I barely have the time to update my blog...What kept me busy???Nursing school. During the first few weeks, I had difficulty adjusting to my new world. There's just so many things to do. So many new things to learn. But I'm coping.I passed the quizzes given to us. Midterm exam is coming up next week. I have been a regular customer at Seattle's Best, sipping vanilla latte inside the bookstore where I read my nursing book. I am working part-time as well. I'm just so happy that my boss is flexible with my new schedule. I wouldn't wanna complain about how busy I am right now. This is what I chose to do. I have met new friends.. And the feeling that I have somehow helped someone inside the hospital is just amazing.. However there are times when I felt like quitting.. But no.. I have worked so hard to get into the program, and I can't let it all go just like that. Prayers keep me going. And I know the Lord will lead me through till I finish this course. : )Here's what happened these past few months...
- My parents celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary in August.
