Oh how nice it feels to be back home on my own couch in good ole Stuttgart, AR!! I have been gone for five weeks, which feels like a long time but at the same time it feels like I just left. I wasn’t originally planning on coming back until Thanksgiving, but y’all that is a long time. Too long for me to stay away from one of my favorite places. I am not coming home for fall break so my mom mentioned that she could fly me home on a Thursday to see my brother play football if we could find a time that originally worked for the both of us. I picked a weekend in October because it just sounded like a good middle time, but it didn’t work for my family. This was the only other time that I didn’t have an event, game, or school work that would be getting in my way. So it is sooner than I thought, but it is good to be back no matter what. It is always hard for me because I hate leaving TCU, but I also hate leaving home. It is just not fun all around, especially since school is so crazy and a little more difficult than last year. I only told my Mom, Dad, and Aunt I was coming so they helped me pull off a surprise for my brother, JanJan, Bia, and the rest of the family and friends. It was almost too good to be true! I am actually looking forward to doing a whole lot of nothing. I am really praying that God will use this long weekend to get me rested up and ready to go back to school. I really can’t put into words how difficult this week was. Lots of late nights and really early mornings, lots of homework and studying, some really hard tests, plus the everyday stuff, and then waking upthis morning at 6 a.m. feeling sick. It seemed like I just couldn’t really catch a break. I think God arranged this time for me to come home because He knew I needed a little TLC from the 72160! Let’s pray I get all that I need. I got to watch my super sporty brother do his thing tonight and that was really fun. I am sad to be away from TCU and missing two social events, but I am super thankful to be able to come back to Stuttgart when I need it. It is going to be a great long weekend. Thank goodness I kept the secret and thank goodness I am here now!
I AM THANKFULLY ALMOST TO MY BED!
Southern and Thankful
