The only way I know how to describe school is this...

Lately, I feel like I'm playing softball and I have hit this really great hit, but I can't see where it's gone and I have these different people telling me that the rules I used to play by no longer count and I listen to them.These new rules are beginning to creep their way into everything I do. Just about the time I figure out the rules, there's this whole other mess of exceptions that I have to learn. And if I don't let those rules creep in, then I'll never make it home to find out if I hit a home run or not.

And y'all know how much I love to win....

Brandon is working and he likes it so far. He works lots of hours. He is happy to be back to work. We're always trying to be thankful for what we've been given which always happens to be what we need.

But it's hard.

Because we can't just go out and do. Part of it has to do with the fact that my school schedule and Brandon's schedule doesn't allow for it.

The other part is that we just can't afford it.

So please pray for my heart to be content with where we are because it's really hard for me lately.

Happy Friday night!

Praying for you both.

One of my mottos to get me through the rat race of grad school is: Slow and steady wins the race.

You WILL have a JD at the end of this. I think a wise woman told me, not so long ago, I WILL have a PhD at the end of this.

Let me know if I can do anything, friend, I totally empathize.
