I know I will

This week has been an interesting crappy, sucky, and tiring to say the least. I have about 2.5 weeks until finals and projects/tests/stuff are piling up. I have also been asked several stinkin times a few times when I am not tired and I am responding with a few short and sweet phrases..."in the start of the semester" and "when I get more sleep than this." This week has been a little sticky but a smile was plastered across my face tonight.

After spending 4 hours in the math lab and four pages of homework completed, I just wanted to crawl up and sleep. But no...I was scheduled to tutor at 7! So from 7-9, I tutored and actually enjoyed watching the "boys" around me. Don't get any ideas...I would never date these guys; they are just my friends Half the football team was in the library tonight because they ALL have papers due tomorrow. So guess who got smiled, waved at, and encouraged today? I will give you a hint...she is 6 foot and looks like a raccoon. ME :) I got asked question after question, tutored my sweet tutoree, and had 2 sweet hours of feeling at PEACE. HUGE weight lifted off my shoulders...for two hours, I was able to chill and NOT worry/stress about school life.

Jeremiah 29:11 and Phil 4:13 have been on my heart all week long. I have been praying for relief and tonight, for those two hours, I got it. Yes it was small, but God does shine through in the midst of our cruddy moments. I have also read several other blogs that are having tough weeks too and I thought I would just "pour" my heart out. YES I KNOW life will get better after finals, but it is just EXTREMELY STRESSED right now. HE will shine through and I understand that too!

Yes this week has basically stunk, but I also know it DOES get better...I know from experiences :) Thank you for all of your sweet comments. I am trying, when able, to visit a few blogs for "free therapy" each day since it does help. Please do not comment and tell me it will get better...I know this...I am just being real! The days may be running together and LONG, but I KNOW I WILL get through!

Have to wrap this post up since it is midnight time sure did FLY by and I have to get up at 6AM! Enjoy the rest of your week. The weekend thank the LORD is just around the corner!

Good for you GIRL!! Having fun in the library! Actually, you just reminded me of some of my favorite study times in my college days. Can you feel the high five vibe from all the way here in Cali!?!

Life is short my friend, before you know it college will be a distant memory. Don't run yourself in to the ground, promise?!

Thanks for the sweet comment on blog. Well, all your sweet comments. Your most recent has left ME smiling from ear to ear!

Chin up!
