Lessons learned.

Well I can't believe I'm sitting here and I'm one week away from being done with my first placement... that means that I'm halfway done w/student teaching! Yikes! I've enjoyed it so far though, it's definitely been a lot of work!

So I'm just recently realizing that I'm truly feeling happy again. I feel like my life is right on track and I'm feeling very blessed. I don't know why it's starting to hit me now, but the past year has been a rough one, one in which I've learned a lot of lessons... mainly, the biggest lessons I've learned is that God is in control- He has a plan for me even when it's not the same plan I have. I've learned that truth is often the best, even if it might be hurtful, I've learned it's ok to be happy, I've learned not to settle for less than I want, and I've learned that true friends will stick by your side through everything-- I mean EVERYTHING. I think I might just mention some friends of mine that have truly been a blessing to me, even when times were rough, and even when things were on the rocks...

Stefani- I can't thank you enough for everything you've done for me in the last year or so. Some of which I know you don't realize. You were there for me when the rest of the world walked out. You're the closest I have to a sister! I'm not looking forward to your fiance whisking you off to Europe, but I guess it'll give me an excuse to be a world traveller ;)

Nicole- We def. had our struggles and our rough points lately, but just as I knew, we made it through it. I can't imagine my life without you (haha sounds like we're dating) We've been friends through so much and I know we're gonna be old ladies sittin' in our rocking chairs-- probably talking about something inappropriate! Haha <3

Whitney- I know we haven't had a lot of time to hang out lately, but I always know that you're here whenever. You have the biggest heart, and can always see past people's weaknesses (esp. mine!) and be a friend. We need to spend more time together!!!

The rest of the cloggers (especially Abby and Teresa), and The YMCA clan (namely- Ashley, Allison, and Britt)- you've been there to listen to my ranting and raving, always giving advice or just putting up with me!

And there's one person I can't leave out, one that is my very best friend and recently my significant other ;)

Brew- you're amazing. I've never been so drawn to one person as I am to you, we can practically read each others minds, and you know me on a deeper level than I even know myself. You have always been there for me, and always giving of everything you have for me. I have so much fun with you, all the time, you make me laugh when it's the last thing I feel like doing. I know we have our moments (we're BOTH stubborn lol) but I'm so happy with you, and I can't thank you enough for all you do for me!

So to all my friends, my TRUE friends, thank you for everything, I love you all!!!
