I can't believe the year is half over! But with it comes 6 months of blessings. I can't believe I have kept this up for 1 1/2 years now. I'm not always stellar about carrying through with things, so this is a blessing all its own!
I'm thankful for July 1st and July in general for many reasons. It was BEAUTIFUL weather today. It is the start of the new fiscal year. 2013/2014 fiscal year at work was kind of nightmare for me and I am ready for a new start with my work hours. The 4th is only 4 days away and the weather looks like it is going to be unseasonably cool (although maybe not so "unseasonable" considering I wore jeans to the fireworks last year). And the 5th is my birthday! :) I'm taking Monday off just in case I party too hard over the weekend. Then I have a wedding reception for my cousin, who got married last month in Colorado. And last, my Arizona family comes for Mission Peoria at the end of the month!!!
And all of those blessings aren't even in the jar yet!
Let's see. I am in my thirties and single. I love spending time with my family, friends, reading, playing games, and spectating (but not playing) sports. I was born in Illinois, raised in Georgia, and went to graduate school in Texas. I now live back in Illinois. I work at an agency doing in-home therapy with kids and their families. I attend Bethany Baptist Church and work with AWANA, volunteer in the nursery, and am active in the Career class. My favorite drink is Dr. Pepper (I even like Dr. Pepper Jelly Bellies). Winter is my favorite time of year and in the winter I love to curl up with a good book and a mug of hot chocolate.
