First of all, I'd like to start off this post by thanking those of you who have been there for me these past couple of days. It's been rough. Of course, I won't go into detail, but I'll just sum up by saying some things have been going on at home and it has made me significantly upset - to the point of not being able to hold back tears. I've been fighting them today as well. But I just want to thank those who have helped me and have been praying for my family. You guys know who you are, and I am thanking you from the bottom of my heart.
God has placed me in the right place here at TCU. I'm thankful for the people He has brought into my life and how He has been developing my faith. I played in a dodgeball tournament with some girls yesterday morning. Let me just tell you that it was so much fun! And we weren't playing with the soft, plush balls that you think of - you know, the balls you played with in middle school. They were legit dodgeballs. AND headshots were allowed. Say goodbye to the good old days when you were out if you threw a headshot and were successful in hitting your target. But it was super fun! We lost, of course, but we had some valient efforts! I had a few good hits and catches as we all did! Our first game was against a group of girls with legs twice as long as mine, all of them. So, you know, running to get the dodgeballs was a failure since they took, oh, I don't know, 3 steps and they were already there! Anyway, the second team was a guy team. They are scary when they throw balls aimed straight at your head! I heard some of them hit the wall behind us and cringed when I thought that could've been me! Anyway, it was very fun! There was a group of firefighters there playing, and it made me think of my dad. I texted him and told him the firefighters came in second and that I had been rooting for them! He texted me and said, "Cool! Go firefighters!", and then proceeded to tell me about the 18 inches of snow he got at his house. So, that was my Saturday.
I hope you guys have had a great weekend and a good start to the week. I'm still pretty upset with some stuff, so sorry if I seem distracted, but if you see me around, feel free to stop me and give me a hug :) every little thing will help. I will be okay, it's not me I worry about...I just wish I could be physically home to help and be supportive. It's hard being all the way over here when I feel like I should be home. God has got all of it in the palm of His hand, thank goodness. However, a few hugs wouldn't hurt. :)
Thanks for reading.
