Counting my blessings



I'm thankful for all the opportunities that have been presented to me lately. I'm counting my blessings and giving all the glory to the only One that deserves it. Thank you God.

This week has been crazy... I've been busy with school work, work work, artist work, reader work, writer work, etc work. (You can tell I like how the "work" part sounded!). Great things have happened to me and so I take a moment and see all what goes on... and then I pray. If I don't take those moments in my life... I would miss all the blessings, the little ones and even the obvious ones (if you know me, you know I get distracted easily... I need to keep myself on track).

So... back to the blessings.

1. I have a new brother. He was born on Wednesday, I think (see what I'm talking about! clueless... I'm telling you!). Hopefully my dad named him Vincent... like Van Gogh :)
2. I have been offered a leadership position for next year. A very important one for me. I'm excited and anxious at the same time because I don't want to mess things up.
3. I'll have the opportunity to participate on a presentation at a student affairs deal... more details later cuz even I have to hear more about it.
4. There's an great opportunity for next summer... I'm looking for internships indifferent places. And there is a chance I won't have to look into that any further.
5. MY FIRST SOLO EXHIBIT!!!

Here's the deal with No. 5:
Some of my paintings were supposed to be at a summer student show in the union gallery at school... but then somehow it ended up being a solo exhibit!!! I'm even going to have an artist reception!!! I have never been to an artist reception before... and this one will be for me!!!! (oh, my! I'm feeling butterflies in my panza!). I'm even going to have little post cards for the show... I'M SO FREAKIN' EXCITED!!! I'm so grateful... :')

And I know all this is happening because God's making it happen. He's always been wonderful to me and I have not always given him the credit. I'm blessed. He's put SO many wonderful people in my life... I'm so overwhelmed with this happiness that I'm running out of words, or maybe it's just that words cannot express what I'm feeling at this moment.

There are other things going on... but right now I just want to say thanks for everything.
