In church we are study a series on wisdom. Specifically my pastor asked us to read Proverbs for 31 days. I haven’t been doing religiously but I did take some time out during work the other day when all the babies were napping and some versus stuck out to me and I would like to share them and maybe get your reactions.
Proverbs 14:23 All hard work brings profit but more talk leads to poverty.
14:30 A heart at peace gives life to the body, but evy rots the bones.
15:4 The tounge that brings healing is a tree of life, but a deceitful tongue crushes the spirit.
16:24 Pleasant words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.
19:18 Discipline your son, for in that there is hope; do not be a willing party to his death.
All of these had a different reason that they spoke to me, but I hope that I can carry there wisdom with me always.


Things have been hard transitioning into this newness for both Lily and I. We have been battling the transition and really it is a day to day process. Our whole world has been updside down and yet her sweet, sassy little self always brings me back to ground zero where reality meets expectation and her and I come together on common ground. These past few days her and I have found a place of peace where the terrible two’s subside and I get a glimpse of the fantastic little princess that God blessed me with.  I am so lucky to be blessed with her has my child. She is kind and thoughtful, helpful and good. She loves to sing and dance, laugh and be silly. All the love and happiness I could have imagined as a mommy and so much more wrapped in her tiny little person. What a treat to be her mommy. Lord, help me always to remember that all good things come from you.


Wednesday, I was driving to work with my beautiful baby asleep in the back seat and I was thinking of all I have done so far this week and all I still have to do. Then, my Outcomes Assessment for English popped into my head and I was overwhelmed with emotion because of God’s provision and how grateful I am to Him for allowing me to do well. I have never been a good student with my ADHD and what I call crazy brain that goes along with it always tripped me up. I especially have had no confidence in my writing skills. I have always felt that I was extremely inadaquate in that department. This semester however has been fantastically healing from the wounds that high school left on my pysche. I still battle the thoughts that I will never be good enough for college work but I am trying and I am gonna keep working on building my confidence. Nerd The truth I think that God is trying to work on me about is that with hardwork the possibilities are endless.  

Hard Work

Peru Presentation.pptx (this is my sllide show for my cultural presentation in Spanish.)
Have you ever had this feeling like you accomplished something really cool and you are really proud of your hard work. But, when it comes to sharing that with someone else it just seems to fall flat? I am happy to say that this week has been very very hard and of course it is not over. But, I can say that all I have accomplished makes me feel proud and is little by little helping me see that maybe my goals are attainable and that I have the fortitude to really do well. I would love to share this with someone and have a fantastic reaction. But, unless you were here through the nearly sleepless nights and the blood, sweat and tears that went into all this work it really falls flat on impressing someone. So, I am gonna be proud that God has given me the opportunity to see and feel the rewards of a hard fought first semester and look forward to what lies ahead. FINALS. Here is wishing for luck and all A’s. Confused
