Refreshing

Refreshing. That's what this weekend was. As I drove back to school today, I talked to the Lord and all I could do was give thanks. I am just so grateful for this weekend spent with family and friends. It was just what I needed.

After many weeks of hard work, this weekend came at the perfect time. It was amazing to just sit on the couch with my family. I needed it. I needed to relax and just breath for a little bit. I needed the rest. I needed to fall asleep in my mom's arms.

As I head into the second half of the semester, I am encouraged because I know I can do it. It is gonna be hard, but I'm gonna do it.

I was watching the show Derek with my mom this weekend, and this quote really struck me:
I'm not a failure because I didn't succeed; 
I'm a failure because I didn't try.

As I am handed this opportunity in life, I am not going to let it pass me by. I won't be a failure if I don't succeed...I'll be a failure if I don't try. And I don't wanna regret not giving this opportunity everything I have...so here goes the next 5 or so weeks until Christmas break.
