I can't believe that Christmas is less than 24 hrs. away! I'm excited to see my parents open their gifts & I'm to the point now I want to see what my presents are...even more I'm still trying to figure out what that one box under the tree is. It's small, makes noise when you shake it, and its kinda of heavy. I haven't decided yet but I think that might be the first present that I open. Yes, I'm still a kid when it comes Christmas time!

This past weekend my family & I went to Cincinnati for an early Christmas with my brother. I got a few things and I liked them a lot. The most exciting thing was watching my niece open her presents. She would shake each one & then rip the paper off after someone started it for her. The funny part was that she had to get off every piece of paper. She would get very frustrated at times....When she finally got it open she would drop the contents of the box out & that was it. She didn't really pay attention to what was in there. It was very humorous at times especially when she would look at you and say" That not funny!"

I'm excited to be off work for the rest of today & all day tomorrow. Yes, I had to work on Christmas Eve but it wasn't that bad. I got to read a good book while waiting on customers to come & buy gift cards & then had to go close dish. I wasn't thrilled about washing dishes for exactly 2hrs but I got an extra $20.00 so I was okay with it afterwards.
Well, I hope that you have a blessed Christmas. I need to go now..............bye friends!

I am enjoying BREAK so far.....

Being on break is the greatest thing in the world! So far this break I have gotten a lot of things accomplished........

  1. I have slept as much & as long as I wanted
  2. Eaten some excellent food
  3. Worked as much as possible

Work doesn't sound exciting, but I must say I truly love my job, and its fun to go back to work after being at school. My job is always exciting, you never know exactly what will happen, or exactly what you will be doing, but you always know it will be fun & busy, or boring & slow.

I have truly enjoyed catching up on my sleep & eating home-cooked meals. Tonight when I got off work I came home and made a home-made pizza. It looked very good and honestly couldn't wait to eat some of it. Around six tonight I received a phone called & my managers at work were begging me to come back to work because they were so busy. So off to work I went with no pizza. Although, when I got home tonight, the pizza was even better than what it would of been around six.

The rest of my week is full of plans to finish Christmas shopping and working. This weekend my family and I are traveling to Cincinnati to have Christmas with my brother and his family. I'm not so sure I like this idea but I honestly have no choice in the matter. I like the idea of having all my present to open on Christmas Day. I won't be opening all of my presents but still its something new that I'm not sure I like but will do anyways. The most exciting thing about this weekend is that I will get to see my adorable niece Meaghan!

I love this girl to piece... Well, I think I should head to bed now so that I will be ready for the day that lays ahead for me tomorrow. Good-night friends

All of these sound wonderful to me! It has been a long time since I have gotten to do any of these and I'm looking forward to doing all of them. I can't wait for it all to begin just a few more hours until the fun begins...............

At last, I have seen the light again!

WOW! What a week. I must say that this week has been full of Christmas Parties & studying for those finals and parties still to go to. I had a grand total of 5 finals this week & yes a few of them were a little on the difficult side. One of my finals took from 9:35 till 11:00 I was a little overwhelmed with this test. I was able to use notes for this test, but the questions were scattered so I was searching for the answers all over my notes.

About an hour ago I finished my last final for this semester and think I did very well on it :). Now, I'm sitting at work with nothing to do. I'm very thankful for this...a time to sit and relax after the long stressful week that I had.

I have to give God thanks for this semester. He helped me to get things done when they needed done. He gave strength to keep going when I didn't feel like I could & most of all He kept me well for the most part the entire semester. I have been sick since Thanksgiving but with His help have been able to finish the semester. PRAISE GOD ITS OVER!

I am leaving tomorrow afternoon to go home for a little over three weeks. When I come back I should be refreshed and ready for the next semester. I'm very thankful that this semester has came to a close! :)

The end is just in sight!

WOW! The semester is almost finished! Praise the good Lord. Let me just tell you about my week
Monday- My 20th birthday! I was excited to spend the day with friends, but then sad about it because I wasn't spending it with my family. It hit me on Sunday when I was at home for my birthday that this will probably start the long trend of not being with my parents for my birthday again. Hopefully, someday I'll be able to spend it with someone I truly love & think the world of. But for now the thought of spending your 1st birthday away from parents was a little depressing.

The good news about it was my friends made up for it. Some of my closest friends on campus took me out for my birthday. Brandon, Joe, Josh, Heather, Maria, Esther, and myself all went to Olive Garden and it was very good. The funny thing about the night was everyone got there food except me. When they were nearly finished with their food mine finally arrived. I didn't order anything that was complicated...who knows what happen. At least I finally got it & enjoyed it.

Tuesday- A very busy day! I got up around 4:00 in the morning to babysit. Went down and got my niece and was intending to put her to bed, but to my surprise she was WIDE awake :( this is impossible for a two year old she should be wanting to go back to bed. Tried to beg her to go to bed and it not working. The whole time she was laying beside me saying plz no, plz no, look Christmas lights :) Yes, the verse I will bless the LORD at all times was going through my head Didn't she know that I just wanted 45 mins of sleep. Finally got her to sleep :) then it was time to head to classes. Went to class from 7-1:00, worked from 1-4, went to teen power 5-8, had volleyball from 8-10, and then finally homework. Yes Tuesdays are extremely busy for me.

Wednesday- Skipped everything except work to sleep. It was needed and helped me out in many ways. Got an antibiotic for this horrible cough that I have been fighting for a couple of weeks, and now am on the mend.

Thursday- Got up around 5:30 to take a test, went to breakfast, went to classes, and now finally sitting at my desk blogging :). I have two papers to finish writing and turn in, in about an hour and then all of my homework will be finished for this semester. Yes i said ALL of my homework will be finished for the semester!!!!

As I said, the end is just in sight! I'm so thankful for the Lord's help through this semester. Yes, it has been a very busy one but I have gained a lot of knowledge and believe it has been very helpful to me. I just have the Christmas play to do this weekend, and than finals next week and I'm home for almost three whole entire weeks.

Hope you have a wonderful day friends, until next time.............I'm off to writing papers!

Sometimes I am amazed at God. When your at your very lowest point and just need encouraging God sends out his blessings upon you. Just recently I felt like I was all alone in this world, but He came to me in a sweet way & reminded me that He has everything under control.

Two weeks ago the teen power workers got together and were praying for the teens, but specifically that someone would come to know God as the personal Lord & Savior. We fasted a meal on Tuesday and prayed through-out the service and the result was two people ended up getting saved. How amazing is that. Through this I was reminded that if we seek God first he will see that our needs are fulfilled.

Once, again I am reminded how amazing God is. He is faithful, loving, kind, all-knowing, an a personal friend to me. Okay, so i was going to post a picture but its not working so thats its for now. I'm off to homework....................Good-night friends


So, I know this is long overdue but I wanted to post a few pictures from the Williams' Thanksgiving.

The Wonderful food

Just a few pictures. I was so excited for Thanksgiving, but not only for that but for a break that was way overdue for me.
