So, tonight I had life group... which i thought would be a regular ole life group nothing unusual... i was wrong. It was a surprise graduation party for me!! Decorations, gifts, cake, friends, and cards!!! I really loved it more than anything in the world. I have never had a surprise party of any sorts and I could not have asked for a better first one!! My creeping skills did not help me out on this one!! My friends from out of town even came in... they drove in for me!! They were just here on Sunday so that was most unexpected!!! Through all of this excitement, i processed so much!! I think i was in such shock because as lame as it is, i feel so undeserving of it all... Im an okay friend.. but im not the best!! I did nothing really... i am graduating from college its not like it has not been done before. Tonight all of these people were there for me and they planned this for me because they love me and i am important for them. They are my family even when my home family is being ultra lame, which happens a lot as you can tell from previous blogs. They are there to help me. Eric was praying tonight and he prayed for me and thanked the Lord for me and for the impact i have made and the impact i have made on campus. News to me, i never even knew i did those things. I think its hard for me to know im doing good unless i see immediate results. These people are in my life for a reason and I am so thankful for it!! They are such an encouragement to me!
i graduate on Saturday which is like three days aways... just saying. Its kind of an emotional time in my life but im making it!! The Lord is going to use this in an unbelievable way i just have to wait to find out... but meanwhile, he is revealing the support all in my life!!
