Do you remember how distraught and heartbroken I was?
And how Heavenly Father sent helpers to lift me up and dust me off?
And then I found myself looking up...with more hope....more than I expected.
I almost dismissed this.
I almost took it as a given.
I almost didn't see.
I almost missed it.
There are things to look up about. There is hope. There is joy. There are blessings.
Yesterday I found out I had been awarded a full tuition scholarship for Spring/Summer terms.
HECK! I don't even know all the things that means!
I have been saving money really strategically for MONTHS! When the school year started, I knew I didn't have enough to graduate. It just wasn't there. So I put away a few hundred dollars every month.
(this is me totally bragging: that is a hard thing to do! putting away a few hundred, EVERY MONTH.
AS A COLLEGE STUDENT!)
Well, all of that hard work has paid off....sort of. Because now I can use it for something else. I mean, I still have Fall Semester Tuition that I need to worry about, but I have it all. If I keep saving and going at it, maybe I can use the money to buy a car! Maybe.
I am looking up.
I almost didn't.
I almost kept chugging along without expressing thanks.
I almost missed the biggest blessing that has been handed to me in MONTHS!
Thank you. Heavenly Father, thank you. I don't even have words. Thank you for helping me to look up. Thank you for showing me that blessings come. Thank you for allowing this blessing to come so soon after a distressing weekend. Thank you for uplifting my spirit, and lightening my load. Thank you for being good, kind, and loving. Thank you for opening my eyes to hope.
I am looking up.
