I made it. I nearly raised the all the funding for our SA trip, I journeyed, loved, and have longed to be back in SA. The people, their passion, the music, it all swirled in my mind as I tried to grasp the Christmas season and all its hustle. Took a deep breath, blinked and it’s now 2014.
School, SAT prep tests, violin lessons, pottery class, orchestra, church and horseback riding have filled my time.
Part-time, I try to make a little extra money, work on photo projects, video, lead a women’s Bible study and try to keep up my friendships, as well as the social events. Aside from keeping up the medical supply cabinet and oversee the management of Bella’s diabetes, I still have to clean house, do laundry and other menial tasks. Bla bla bla.
Something important is this fact: time is limited. I’m realizing that this is the final summer before Abby’s high school life starts, and it’s not sitting well with me.
Diabetes camp and hopefully SMU Tag college experience will occur as well. It’s quite the lengthy admission process with a hefty price tag on top.
We will hope for he best.
In 2014, I hope to convert my video into digital files, get into shape, read, write and create more. I hope to balance the social life with my homely, introverted longing. Seriously, I could love a solitary life…easily.
When I look back at this post, I pray I’ve accomplished those things and have made and followed through on my commitments to SA. To increase Him and decrease me.
