I know that I have not blogged in a while, but life has really been busy, busy, busy for me. I am totally taken back by all the problems and tragedy that are befalling my friends, family and acquaintances. One of my students tried to commit suicide this weekend. She is a sweet kid, very polite and an A student. I don’t know the details, I was just so taken back by the news, I would have never guess it about this girl.

It seems that life is constantly filled with problems and challenges and they sometimes seem insurmountable. But, it is often these very same challenges that the good Lord uses to shape and mold us into the unique souls that we are.

And sometimes with out these challenges we cannot attain the height or the depth or breath of life that we find in ourselves. Who we ARE is an ever changing thing, but who we can become is an exciting adventure that we explore each and every day, moment of our lives... and that my friends makes life exciting every day.

The dream I dream today, can be reality tomorrow, if I only believe.
