And finally...by God's grace, I was able to press "submit" for my research paper, presentation, and post survey! Finishing unfinished business has been a test of faith in the midst of extreme fatigue, oral surgery, and life happenings, but it's done! As soon as it's official, completing this work means that I can prepare for my comprehensive exams this spring semester.
So thankful for the support of friends and family and a jovial, yet competent oral surgeon who understood my sudden request for fried rice and caesar salad. Thanks, Mom, for making two food runs to ensure my health, well-being, and sanity. And special thank you to my friend who encouraged my heart, this morning, through the voice of Daryl Coley. And now my vacation (of 1 day) can begin...(starting with shutting this computer off!)
I wish you all health, peace, love, and the blessings that only God provides during the coming year.
Happy New Year!
