Updates and Announcements and Blessings

First, my brother came out of surgery fine and everything went well. It is still a little early to tell if the results have solved the problems but we have high hopes.

Secondly, it is time for me to make my announcement about the good things I eluded to a couple of posts ago. For the 2009-2010 school year I will be a 3rd grade teacher!!!! Praise the Lord, I got a full time job and a full time teaching job at that!!! I am so excited! The school district I will be working in is awesome, and I have heard nothing but good things about it. I am terrified and excited all at the same time!

Thirdly, I am all moved into my rent house. I am loving having my own house. No more sharing walls, no more screaming kids outside my window, and no more hearing my neighbors cough at night. Basically having a house rules! I am totally on the "my first house" high right now!

Basically, all I should have written for this post was: I am blessed. God has truly knocked me to my knees lately. I don't know what I did to deserve all these blessings but I am doing my best to show my gratitude. All the praise and glory belongs to God. I am just so excited to see where life is going to take me in the next few months!!!

You Find Out Who Your Friends Are

Yesterday was a big day for me. Something good finally happened and I achieved a goal that I have been working toward for a while.

But the point of this isn't to toot my own horn and say how awesome I am. I bring this up to say that when something good happens to you, you find out who your friends are.

When sharing my news yesterday I was able to see who in my life really supports me, rejoices in my successes, understands me, and who will be there to help me along the way and who isn't going to be there to share in my joy.

I am blessed to have amazing people in my life and I am thankful for them. My friends and family really showed me that when I struggle they struggle with me and when I'm happy they are happy with me. Even people I wouldn't have expected to reached out to me to offer their congratulations and let me know they are there for me. I had friends share my news with their friends, and then those friends sought me out to share in the excitement.

It really made me feel happy/proud/humbled/loved/respected/(basically every positive superlative you can think of) to know I have the people in my life who will catch me when I fall and lift me up when I succeed.

I am incredibly grateful that God's grace has placed all these awesome people in my life. And I am so thankful He will continue to bless me with each new friend I make.
