Well, the end of the semester is almost here! One more week with three finals to go. The past couple of weeks have been very difficult. With the semester coming to a close, it’s been a blur of exams, papers, and projects. My mom also had her final surgery last week so I’ve been home for the past few days to help around the house. I’m also preparing for a Public Health Nursing service trip to Kayenta, Arizona to work with the Navajo Indians in a few weeks. My final paper exploring nutrition and diabetes risk factors in this population was also due this past Monday and yesterday I had a final exam in my research class. Needless to say, I’ve had a lot on my plate lately. With clinical courses being completed for the semester, I have today off and so I took yesterday evening to just relax. It was wonderful to be able to have the free time to start working on this blog to keep all of you updated on the adventures of my life. As I learned the ins and outs of WordPress, I listened to K-Love radio and heard “Good to be Alive” by Jason Gray. This song is everything that I want the blog to represent. It’s such a great song and some of his lyrics say: “Every day that I wake, every breath that I take you’ve given
So right here, right now
While the sun is shining down
I wanna live like there’s no tomorrow
Love like I’m on borrowed time
It’s good to be alive, yeah
I won’t take it for granted
I won’t waste another second
All I want is to give you
A life well lived, to say “thank you””
It may be rainy and gloomy outside today, but I have so much to be thankful for in my life and I don’t want to take another second for granted. With the rest of the day off, I’m grateful for the opportunity to start studying for my final exams next week. Thanks for reading and have a wonderful rest of the day!
