Wellyesterday the coolest thing happened and I just have to share it with y’all. So if you go back to Monday’spost I talked about how great of a tour it was with my friend Landon as my tour guide partner. Well yesterday I got an e-mail from one of the girls in my tour group (e-mail below) saying how great of a tour it was and how much she loved us. To summarize it for you, she basically said she is planning to attend TCU because of me and Landon and the tour we gave. BEST FEELING EVER. To know that we are doing our job well and to know that we are helping others fall in love with TCU is my absolute favorite thing about being a tour guide. It was also super awesome that she reached out and shared that with me. Totally made my day!
Today was an okay day. It was pretty cool because Landon and I got to give a tour of the new library to the board of trustees and various others at the new library dedication ceremony. The new Library is SO nice and I am very thankful that I got to help out at this cool event. Times like these make me love being a tour guide.
I always try to be completely honest with you all when I write this daily. I can always find something to be thankful for, but some days it is hard because some days are just not easy. Sophomore year in general is just SO different. It is harder, but harder in totally different ways. When I left TCU last year for summer I knew things would change, but living in that change has been harder than I thought.
Some days I feel like I am not good enough.
Some days I feel like I have lost a war.
Some days I feel like I have no real friends.
Some days I feel like something is missing.
Some days I feel a little lost and doubt God big time,
Some days I want to give up.
Some days I want to be little again.
Some days I question everything that is going on around me.
Some days I wish I could turn back time.
Some days the devil just really gets to me.
Today was a little bit like one of those days, but I tell you this to remind you of one thing:
EVERYDAY I have my God.
EVERYDAY He is with me.
EVERYDAY He loves me.
EVERYDAY He is all I need.
EVERYDAY He makes me a believer.
EVERYDAY He has a plan for me.
EVERYDAY He challenges me.
EVERYDAY He teaches me something new.
EVERYDAY He gives me something to be thankful for.
So yes, things happen. The devil gets in and brings all these negative vibes. That’s okay for about two seconds, but then you have to be reminded of the EVERYDAY things. Some days are overflowing with joy and others are sprinkled with it. It doesn’t matter because no matter what it is or what is going on or does or doesn’t happen, EVERYDAY we have God. The EVERYDAY things make the somedays seem so so small.
God, I thank you for that EVERYDAY!
Southern and Thankful

Cade- you are ,without a doubt, the best tour guide ever!! You certainly convinced Jacob that TCU was his future home.
I thank God for your encouragement and honesty. I think it’s important for all of us, but even more for young people that we all feel hopeless sometimes. But, we have God’s grace to see us thorough.
Wishing you continued blessings.
