So summer is almost upon us. I have somehow successfully completed my first year of nursing school. While I am completely stoked about that accomplishment, my lack of ability to find a summer job has put a lot of stress on my family.
How I wish that this summer break involved a nice visit to the beach or at least an opportunity to visit and catch up with out of town family.
In trying to maintain the theme of this blog I am determined to find my happiness in this trying time. The bill collectors may be calling, but I am too busy enjoying a good run and the smile of my beautiful toddler to notice.
A long the same lines I am trying to reach daily goals so that I feel like I am at least moving forward and living my life not waiting around for life to happen.
I love love love inspiring stories and hope that out of this my own inspiring story will develop in the meantime I will soak up those of the people around me. If I find a good one I will be sure to pass it along. This is when I wish I had an audience so I could ask everyone for their favorite inspiring story. :)

Family and friends, I need your help.
A friend of mine that works at Emerson’s daycare gave birth to a beautiful baby girl who she named Kylie in October this year. Unfortunately Kylie was born very sick and has been in the NICU since her birth. Her Mother has been so strong, but her strength is not enough to keep Kylie with her. The Doctors do not expect her to make it past the first of the year. It breaks my heart, I cannot even imagine the pain her family must be going through.
I just want her family to know that Kylie touched someone’s life, and she has touched mine. So if you have an extra Christmas card or maybe a story to share to let Kylie’s Mom and family (she has two big sisters) know that they are not a lone and that sometimes God works in strange ways could you send it my way so Emerson and I can give them to her family? It would mean the world to me. Please forward this on to all that you think would participate. Thank you.
There is also a donate button that should take you to a paypal account if you would like to donate money to help with Kylie's expenses.
