My New Life


There has been so much new packed into this one week and so much I'd like to process in writing right here with all of you, but these books are calling my name.

This is my new life.  It's exciting.  It's hard.  I'm learning to take it one day at a time.

Hoping to find some time soon to elaborate.

Thanks for encouraging me friends.  You make me brave.

I hope your weekend is filled with unexpected beauty.

Love you. Praying for you.

There are many reasons I'm glad when you post something new on the blog, but at the top of the list for this post is: Now the picture that comes up doesn't look like Popeye just lost his lunch in that bowl. I'm sure it was delicious, but.......

As a college senior, I'm already sad to leave the world of academia and relieved it's almost over. I'm sure going back brings mixed feelings as well. Best wishes. I hope you find some helpful study buddies and professors and mentors who really care about you.

You go girl!! The first few weeks are the hardest getting back in the swing, but you'll do great. Here's to the exciting new adventure and to a brain that absorbs, retains and is able to repeat that info easily :)

Wooo Hooo!! So excited you are on this journey! It is a difficult, wonderful, rewarding work, as you already know. You will be great. Looking forward to all the stories. I am half way through my training and it still seems surreal that one day I will join along with all the other midwives in this wonderful work. Praying for you and your family.

Good for you! You're living my "one day I'll do that" dream... Love, love, love my years as a nurse in labor and delivery. and now I love, love, love being "just a mom" but I hope that one day i can return officially to the world of nursing :) Praying for you!

Hi! I've read your blog for a couple of years now and never commented. No real reason other than I just sort of blog hop to my favorite blogs like reading the paper. But the other day I was in the kitchen and thought.." I need to check how your oldest son's first day of school went"... and I thought...uh weird...you don't even know her....so I realized it was time to say hey.

I'm abby and I love your blog. I love hearing how the Lord is teaching you more about Him everyday and i laugh out loud often at your humor and dang wittiness:)

I have been super excited about your last few blogs on food...I am married and have 4 kids 8 and under and we eat a similar diet of predominately plant based food with some free range meat from local farms. I have been grinding my own grain (soaking and all that stuff) but recently after reading some more literature by an author I like named Jessie Hawkins we have been trying to scale back on grains. ( she has a wealth of info out there as well as courses you can take and supports more of a mediterranean diet) Have you read the Blue Zones..I read it a long time ago but recently got the second edition...it's really good.

Anyway hope school is going good and your family is adjusting well to the new changes.

We have a mutual friend, Jenny Rigney (her brother is married to my sister)!! At 42, I went back to school this semester, too. Nursing school is in my future... once I finish microbiology and A&P. Glad to know you survived those two classes!! Gives me hope... are you at Blinn or TAMU? And when do you start nursing school?
