This summer…

This summer has been full of a lot of ups and downs, and life lessons. God has opened my eyes to what matters most: time. Not just sitting around and being on a technology device while in the same room as others. That’s not spending time. Looking at my niece and nephew in the eyes while they speak to me. Reading with them, to them, and beside them. Singing silly songs, watching their fashion shows, playing outside, as well as, doing chores with them. I learned that barking orders is much different than showing them how to do things well, and it helps to have more hands working on the same task. I enjoyed cooking with them, playing with them, and spending time that I haven’t spent in months with them. I enjoyed times with my dog, doing things I would usually say no to, gaining confidence in myself, and having meaningful talks with my brother and sister in law. I have learned to let go of my worries and leave things in God’s hands. Y’all, I thought I was going to lose Callie: my buddy, my furry BFF, but I didn’t. It wasn’t her time, yet. I’ve learned to be more patient, calm, at peace, to work harder, to express more, and to soak up the good things and banish the bad. I’ve learned to close my mouth and open my ears. I’ve learned so much this Summer, and I’m so thankful. This time last year, I was in a very bad place. I didn’t know what was going to happen with my life, but God has blessed me ten- fold with the job I have, and the people I’ve connected with through it. I’m so thankful for the past year at Millsap, the amazing kiddos that I will always have room in my heart for, the parents that will do anything for their children, and my co-workers who will do anything for each other. I’ve learned a lot this summer…
