An Overdue Update

Has it REALLY been since January of this year that I posted?? Wow, I've really become a slacker with this blog. I'm sure hardly anyone ever checks on here anymore, but I'm sorry for those of you who do and never see any new posts! This year has gone by so fast for me. I'm still in the dental hygiene program, and Lord willing,I'll be graduating in 6 months. Can you believe it? I feel like I just started, and I'm already almost done with my 3rd semester in the program. God has really brought me a long way, and I am so amazed at how He has been answering my prayers and calming my nerves this year. So far this has been a very challenging semester--clinic has definitely been alot tougher, but more rewarding as well.

Every time I fail at something I'm always encouraged by a patient, family member, or friend. Today in clinic one of my more challenging patients (as far as treating her) gave me a hug and was so sweet even though I had to see her for about 5 appointments. I'm just so thankful I'm finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel--it's a good reminder to me that God is always faithful with His promises. =)

Besides school, I've been absolutely loving autumn. It's one of my all-time favorite seasons, especially since my two favorite holidays are around this time-Thanksgiving and Christmas (at least the preparation part). And yes, I've already started to listen to my Christmas collection--I know it spoils everything to start so early, but I look forward to it so much I can't wait. =D

I can't promise that I'll become better at posting on here, but I'll try to give more updates. I hope you all have been doing well!!

"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?" Matthew 6:25-34(This has become one of my favorite verses, especially since this semester!)
