Keeping it between the lines

Thanks for your patience regarding the blog posts. I've been trying to keep it between the lines, and have only had moderate success lately. School is being a real challenge when it comes to accommodations. Most of my teachers are fabulous! But, as they say, there is one in every crowd.

Probably the most frustrating part is in finding out that I need accommodations at all. The frustration of learning disabilities and a head injury is immeasurable. However, they make a huge difference. It would be impossible for me to pass classes without the support. As it is, if all goes as planned, I'll be inducted into the college honor society later this month. It's close on the GPA, but it's close enough to count. :)

My physical problems seem to also be on the rise. I fell again and will begin physical therapy (again) on Friday over the shoulder that I injured. It's the foot drop thing... again.

However, life isn't all gloom and doom. My husband's churches are putting together a missions team to go to Alaska, North Carolina and to Mississippi this summer. Everyone here is excited about the opportunities. I'm determined to go as able.

My churches are great. The early one really helped me on Sunday morning. An ill-timed low blood sugar reaction threatened to derail the entire service. Only I would have a reaction like that just before preaching, right? Not only was everyone extremely patient but church members set about finding sugar sources to bring the levels back up. All was almost well by the time that I arrived at the second church.

So, there are bright spots. My point in posting is to remind myself that life isn't always a peak or a valley. It's a roller coaster ride that carries you through both. It's wild, untamed and unpredictable - both in good ways and in bad. However, I'm still riding the roller coaster and my hunch is that it's the ride through life that matters most. To ride, is to enjoy life to its fullest. I plan to enjoy the ride for a long, long time to come.
