In August of 2009 I started a journey that would lead me to a degree in respiratory care. There were a lot of laughs and a lot of tears along the way, but thanks to God, Sean, and the support of my family and friends I am glad to say I made it! On May the 27th I graduated. Thank you God! Unfortunately I now have to study and take my state boards (2 of them!), and try and find a job. But the biggest hurdle is out of the way! Yahoo! Thanks to everyone that was so supportive.
Life can get pretty complicated at times. It's amazing to me how things change, and shift, and fall in to place all around us. I look back at my life....15....18....21....now, 26...and I am truly amazed. I never thought I would leave my home town of Bakersfield, CA, yet here I am in Chico. It's exactly where God wants me to be too. He has done so much for me in my life, but especially in the last five and a half years that I have been in Chico. I have grown so much spiritually. It's wonderful and I am so grateful. Plus, I have so many great friends and awesome family (the Morton's, my grandparents, aunt and uncle Claborn). And of course I have met the love of my life, Sean Dean Neufeld. The best husband a girl could ask for. Again, God has done so much!
