If there is one thing I hate more than most, it is the Sunday’s traveling back to school. They wouldn’t be that bad, but 3 factors play into this day.
1. The bittersweetness of it all
2. The 6 hour drive
3. The 6 hour drive ALONE.
It is just often a hard day for me! It would be a hard day for most people I’d say and I am not afraid to admit that. I am so thankful for the people who took the time to call me, and the people who prayed for me. The weather today was also pretty nasty so it made it really not fun at all. I think it is so hard because I have 6 hours where I have nothing to do, but think. And then you get all these worries in your head and then you get sad and it is just hard. You don’t understand until you physically have to do it yourself. With these discomforts, thankfully,I did find comfort.
1. Comfort in knowing that God is always with me. I am never ever alone! And comfort in knowing I am following his path!
2. Comfort in knowing how much my family loves and supports me!
3. Comfort in knowing I was coming back to a great place with great people!
I would have loved to come back and just not go to class, but that defeats the purpose doesn’t it! I miss things about home, but I really am ready to get a routine established because that would make me feel a lot better. Tonorrow I start classes and I am nervous. I want to do so well and the classes I am taking aren’t really my speciality. Please say a prayer for me and think of me this week and semester. I would really appreciate it! I am excited to see what the semester holds and I am excited to be at TCU. I am thankful for the travel prayers and I am thankful God brought me back here safley. Another semester to win… I can do this!
Have a great start to your week with lots of thanks!
