I am Blessed

It all started when my professor said "so I'm really a busy man, and I just don't have time to grade all the papers you have been turning in. I'm going to cancel the last paper on the syllabus." It was a Thursday morning. An overwhelming feeling of peace came over me, and I knew it was going to be a good day because my second class of the day was cancelled as well. Thursdays are my favorite day of the week anyways. I have class from 10 to 1:20, and then it's the weekend! Thursday afternoons are spent cleaning and relaxing. No homework is done on a Thursday. What is it about cleaning that is so peaceful? Perhaps it's a self cleansing, clearing of the mind time for me, when my roommates aren't home, and I can just think. Then of course Thursday night dancing at Eagles. This particular Thursday night I was all about hanging out with my friends, but I was pooped. Once we got there however, I was so glad I went. It was one of our best Eagles night all year. Just goofin', new boot goofin'. I love my roommates and friends so much, it's possible I was getting a little sentimental. It was a Thursday to remember.

Just this past week has really been a good week. I got to spend a lot of time with my young life girls, and my roommates, and with my boyfriend. I went home for the weekend with a young life girl, got to see my family, then came back to Corvallis and got to go to one of the OSU baseball games with Jessica and Brad. I loooooooove baseball games in the sunshine. Almost nothing beats that feeling. Then Jessica and I went out to Block for dinner. I must say it was a good weekend.

Heading into finals week, I really am not feeling stressed either. Maybe I should be more, or maybe it is peace from the Lord. I think I am going to finish this term really strong, and I am excited for Spring Break, Work Week, Redmond with my family, and Seattle with my roommates. I am blessed.
