Isn't it funny how no matter how old you are you are still learning??

I've had a humbling experience lately. I've had to go back to work as a waitress. Now to some people I know its not really a big deal but to me it is!! I'm almost 24 and I have my bachelor's degree doesn't that mean I should have a big fancy job somewhere?!?!

Apparently not!!

But I guess its an ok thing it shows I'm willing to do what it takes to take care of my self. Still at least once in my life it'd be nice if there was someone (like my parents) who took care of all my money things so I could focus on school.

Yup thats another thing I'm back in school!! YAY! ha ya right!

Well its not full blown school its iTeachTexas, an online program that is going to help prepare me to get my teaching cerftification. Its really not that bad, kinda common sense stuff but I'm learning alot. Actually the biggest thing that I've learned is that I really want to teach.

Now I know your probably thinking "Um I hope you knew that before you did this thing!!" Well I didn't, not really. I knew I'd be good at it cause I like kids and I taught in a church and loved it. But actually being in a classroom all the time kinda freaked me out. Plus I've heard tons of horror stories from friends who are teachers.

My whole life people pushed me to teach but every girl in my graduating class wanted to be a teacher. I wanted to do something fun and exciting with my life (I'm still holding out for Nashville to call ;)

But the more I do my coursework the more I see I want to be a teacher. I love to be in charge...who doesn't?? And I love helping people learn new things. I can't wait to decorate my classroom and come up with all kinds of new and exciting games for my kids :)

I know its going to be hard work but I'm enjoying the learning process. I can't wait!! So keep your fingers crosse that I get me that job!!!


Its a rare rainy day here in west Texas. Rain always makes me think of God and blessings.

I'm not sure maybe because it happens so rarely around here. When it finally does the land is so parched it just makes you feel so thankful.

I think life is sometimes that way. I was listening to my radio while i was getting ready and a Luke Bryan song came on about rain. He was talking about being from the country and how we appreciate it more that people in the city because we have so much more at stake. It was all funny and light hearted but it made me think.

Rain is kind of like the low points in a Christians life. When you hit that wall or face major tragedy in your life you can't help but look around at all the good things God has blessed you with.

Its like the rain, makes your pants soggy and messes up your hair you just can't help but smile cause it smells so good and everything seems calmer.

Even when your crying your eyes out you cling to the special people in your life or your health and lift up praises to Him for giving you a silver lining.

Sorrow is temporary and remember behind those clouds is Sonshine :)
