The wedding is only a month and 3 weeks away! There is so much to do, in the disguise of tons of teeny little things to do here and there. Yipes! It's so strange that it's actually here and that I'll be a married lady by the end of October! Weird but great! I'm so excited!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Boards are a week from today...I'm a little nervous.
Please say a prayer for me if you think of it. I would appreciate it so much.
Hope you all are doing very well and being lights to others. It's hard sometimes but you have to because we are commanded to.
Be strong and hold others up. Then when you are not strong, others will hold you up. Isn't it cool how that works? Lots of blessings.
Anyhow, just thought I'd update. Does anyone have any good ideas for a song to walk down the aisle to besides "here comes the bride"...and it can only be like, 40 seconds. Yeah, my aisle is not that long. But hey, that's cool because it's an aisle and I'm getting married at the end of it. Yay!
Alright, are you ready for this?
Done with nursing school...
and care plans...
and white uniforms.
Graduation/Pinning Ceremony is on Friday. If you're in the area, you are welcome to come!
Yes. I'm excited. What's next? I'm getting married in less than three months. I can't hardly believe it's so close. I've been counting down the days ever since I had this ring put on my finger 2 years and 6 months ago. Crazy.
Oh, we bought our wedding bands this past weekend! It was so exciting. And it's funny what you think you like and then it turns out that you don't like what you thought you'd like. Hmm. Why is that I wonder? Anyhow, hope everyone is doing well these days. It's hot outside so stay cool and drink a lot ok? Keep those electrolytes balanced. They're so important. If you don't believe me, ask a nurse. Wait...haha.
I love you all very much. Can't wait to see you soon, and if I don't see you soon, I can't wait to see you in eternity. What a reunion that will be? Singing praises to the Lord forever. Be there.
The End of nursing school!! Ahhhhh!!!!
The countdown has not begun, but it's getting closer! August 4th is our pinning ceremony and I will be done with school! Then comes Boards. Yuck.
Things are very busy right now, but what's new, right? I've been working at the hospital in the SICU which has been really spectacular! I love the ICU. Don't ask why, I just do. You'd have to be a nurse to understand I suppose.
Wedding plans are coming along well. Just a lot of little things to take care of. I'm so glad we've gotten the big things out of the way, like WHERE, WHEN, and the DRESS! haha. Anyhow, it's getting closer as well...4 months and 10 days to go. I can't wait for all of my family and friends to be together in one place that day. It will be so wonderful!
Well, Mom and Lisa have gone to camp this week. I miss them already. I will have to get used to not having them around because when I move away, that's the way it will be! I wish I could be at camp, but alas, it did not work out this year. That's alright. I hope they have a wonderful, productive, and spiritually uplifting week.
I hope all of you guys have a wonderful, productive, and spiritually uplifting week as well, even though you're not at camp. It's possible you know!! haha. You don't have to be at the gazebo to be uplifted. (All of you Alabama campers know what I mean) Stay strong and don't be afraid to shine. Be the flamingo in the field of cotton. (That's a Lori original by the way..hahaha)
Take care and I love you all!
can you believe it? Time is passing so quickly! It seems like it was only just January! In some ways it is a blessing, but in others it's no good. Isn't it funny how sometimes we can't take the time to be in the moment? We want things to hurry up or slow down, but never be the time that it actually is. How sad. I know I need to try to live in the moment that I am in more.
Well, classes are going to start in another week. We have an NCLEX review class this week, so I went today and it was just ridiculous. The lady, who was very well educated, merely read to us from the review book that they gave us! I was so disappointed. I think I will not be going back this week. I need to spend some time with my SIS (I'm not sure how to link or else I'd link her). I won't be seeing much of her this summer I'm guessing because we have a crazy schedule for clinicals. We'll see what happens. I'm sure it will all turn out ok though.
So Lisa is graduating on Saturday and it seems so strange. It seems like it was only yesterday that we were playing Barbies and watching Cinderella...oh childhood. I am thankful for the wonderful times we've had together and how close we've become. We're so different and yet so much alike. We decided that we need our own show. You should come with us to the grocery store or Walmart sometime. It's a riot. haha, maybe we just think so though. Anyhow, I am so thankful to have her and I can't believe she is so grown up. I am so very blessed.
Well, hopefully everyone is doing well and will continue to have a great last few days of May, Lord willing. Do you guys know I love you and I'm so glad that I know you? Yeah, I'm talking to you! I love you guys...well, you girls mostly. Y'all take care! Love you!
Sometimes I think we forget, at least I do, that even if you can't put something into words or talk to anyone about something, God always knows what is in your heart and what you are trying to say. Isn't that a blessing? I think it's amazing.
I still can't believe sometimes that I am able to talk to the Creator of the entire universe, in prayer. Does anyone else think this is breathtaking? Really, it is. And if it isn't to you, it should be.
We are so blessed in every way imaginable. I can't even begin to describe. And I'm not talking about the stuff that we have or the things that we buy, needlessly most of the time. When your heart is heavy or there is something on your mind, God is always there. I know I take that for granted and yet, God is still there, ready to listen. I just can't fathom that love and patience. Can you?
What a promise we have. Eternal life. What will that be like? Forever with God? Could we ask for more? I don't deserve it. But what a blessing it is. This probably doesn't make much sense, but I am just reflecting on some thoughts of mine. I love you all very much and I want to see you in heaven one day with our Lord. If there is anything I can do to help you get there, please tell me. I love you too much for you not to be there. Stay strong and shine your light. Share the Gospel with others beacuse if they're not on their way to heaven, they are on their way to hell.
There is so much more I could write, but I'd be here all night, and I need to be ready to worship with the saints in the morning. The Lord's day... I can't wait!
Praise God for all the blessings that He gives us!
