I am studying for my final on Spanish grammar and writing. Exciting. Hahah.
I just wanted to say how grateful I am to be able to go to school. Even for this semester and how far I’ve come. I don’t know what’s going to happen later but I am so… thankful that I can attend class, have access to these resources and opportunities. I am so happy that I can be in a place of formal education. I sound soooo nerdy ahahha.
I like school. I enjoy it so much. I also cannot wait to graduate (oh… how far away you seem haha). But I enjoy class, homework, exams, etc. Everything. Haha.
I’m so grateful to my parents who support me financially and morally. I will never forget my mom’s words when I told her about contemplating switching over to a more practical major like economics: Study what you love and enjoy; let God take care of the rest. Oh holla. Even my dad who had wanted me to study law, accounting and business (haha so crazy) placed the decision in my hands and surprised me with such gentleness in doing so.
Man, it’s such a lovely feeling to know that my parents back me up, and not just what I do or study. It leads me to want to honor them. Not because I get to have my way but because they respect my decision and path even if it doesn’t vibe with them, even if it’s illogical and maybe even selfish. Mad respect. I don’t know what I would do if I had a daughter like me hahahah!!!! Lord have mercy.
I am so thankful. I am so privileged to be their daughter. To learn from them, to be loved by them and to journey with them.
And I don’t ever want to just get by. All my life this is how I lived. The bare minimum was the standard. But I don’t want that anymore. I want to excel, to offer excellence in everything I do. I want wisdom in my schoolwork. I want it to reflect who he is to me, how I love and view my God. Let it be so. Holllaaa.
Dad, you are the best. Always. I am so amazed. I give you thanks. I can’t just say it to you personally. I want to put it in a place where others might see (haha). You are so worthy, so good, so… lovely in all that you do. I acknowledge you, your presence in my life, your goodness. I acknowledge your power and grace and holiness. I acknowledge that you have fashioned me out of nothing and to nothing I will return. But for this day, with this breath, I thank you. I give glory where glory is due. You will have your glory. Yep. To sum it up, you’re my favorite heehee.
P.s. Can you take care of my human favorites? My family is desirous and hungry for more of you. Will you take care of your people financially, spiritually, relationally, in every way? We are open to you and want to know you together.
