It is wonderful to stand where I am today with no anxiety, no crushing weight upon my shoulders and the ability to relax. I am so appreciative for every Sunday to celebrate the Sabbath day by going to Church, taking a long run, making dinner for my family, writing, reading for fun, and just relaxing with my family. I never dreamed of this day because for 4.5 years I wasn’t able to take the time to dream of it. I will tell you how I made it through by the grace of God, love and support of my family, and by putting one foot in front of the other one day at a time. I would not change the past 4.5 years for anything. I earned my Master’s Degree, became a teacher, formed relationships with students helping them to grow in their faith, pushed my limits, and depended on family and God to see me through it. I am blessed beyond measure. I am now able to appreciate every moment of relaxation!
If you are having a hard time making it through put one foot in front of the other, plan, count on family and friends, and trust in God completely!
