And just like that another month has f l o w n by! The semester is coming to a close and I cannot help but look back and think about the progress that has been made. In fact, last Easter I missed out on the anticipated family activities due to a debilitating headache, which we now know was because of the pineal gland tumor. This Easter has been so wonderful to spend with my precious and healthy family!
When I last wrote I was about to take on Spring Break! My Spring Break was a blast! I spent most of my time in West Texas preparing for my summer internship at KLBK News. I cannot wait to spend part of my summer there! The entire crew is so welcoming. I even came home with a few Texas Tech shirts (No worries dad, no matter what school I cover, my heart will always be in the SEC)
Some other exciting things this month have included a fishing trip with my family, judging the University of Alabama’s Miss Black and Gold Pageant, receiving the Landa Endowed Scholarship, interviewing for a spot to work for ESPNU Campus Connection (I GOT IT!!!!) and going back to the Miss Teen Alabama Pageant as a former titleholder. More exciting news, I was nominated as one of Birmingham’s Most Beautiful People. I was so honored! They held an online voting contest and from 120 people, they are now narrowing it down to 20 that will be chosen and featured in Birmingham Magazine. Isn’t God so good?!
The healing process continues to go smoothly. Not many things have changed since my last post, which is a good thing! I continue to be hyper sensitive to light. Direct light into my eyes can cause a terrible migraine because the optic nerve isn’t healed completely just yet. My memory continues to improve with time. Vision still a little disturbed, but primarily just in natural light.
This week is the last full week of classes and next week will be finals. I have a small prayer request! Please pray for my endurance and memory during these last two weeks during these stressful exams. I am so thankful to be healthy and taking finals but still a little nervous!
Oh one last thing… I just want to take a second to remind everyone who has been by my side during this journey how thankful I am for them. Mom, Dad, Emily, grandparents, friends all over the country, sorority sisters, even strangers who drop in to say they’re praying: it is because of your love I am where I am today.
To God be the glory,
Loved getting to be a surprise guest on Trends and Friends!
Love this girl! So fun getting to go back and be on the other side of the stage at Miss Teen Alabama 2014!
