…has it been that long…

apparently it’s been since March that I wrote. even at that, I didn’t finish the 30 before 30 series. sheesh.

to say not much has happened since then would be a straight up lie. like saying fries aren’t better when dipped in a chocolate frosty. life has happened. and it happened rather fast and furious. and awesome and exhilarating. and I’m still catching my breath.

the school year ended and as soon as the students were out the door, my promotion took effect. immediately being questioned about what now and what next. meetings, high emotions, packing and flights. jet-lag and more flights, traveling and a road trip. friends, memories and new adventures. all packed into a crazy summer after a crazy school year right before another jump in with both feet, hit the ground running and hold on to your hats school year. kachow!

and now it’s November. and while I like November, I feel like I somehow missed the proceeding months by just now waking up. and by starting to write again.

so now as I sit in my apartment [that has been repainted since spring] shivering because fall/winter has finally arrived, reflecting on what has happened – I’m blessed, overwhelmed, feeling awesome.

it’s nice to look back and see what has happened in a few short months. to remember the good times with friends and family this summer. refreshing for my heart and soul. breath of air that soothes and reassures.

as for the school year. I love my job. it’s been amazing and challenging and frustrating and blessed. The Lord has put the right people in the right positions to surround me with encouragement and love and support. it’s good.

Life is good.

He is good.
