This morning I had a temporary lapse in sanity and got so stressed that I nearly had a panic attack. I know having too much coffee (no such thing) and receiving so much info at once contributed to this, but in reality, there was no need for it. When I stepped back and realized what I was doing, it didn’t make sense at all. God has brought me so far and has provided for me when nothing seemed to be coming together. Why should I fret? There are still things to be done, and it might not be easy (nothing comes easy with these sort of things,) but it will work out. He will come through. If He hadn’t come through this far, where would I be? He is who He says He is. The Lord is faithful.
I’m choosing joy within this chaos, because…I have somewhere to live! I’m signing a lease! I have an apartment! WOOT.

Today, I am feeling very grateful.
This morning, my 96-year-old grandmother-in-law (uncle’s wife’s mother) passed away. My family says it’s a blessing as her quality of life lately was not very good. Though I only saw her a couple of times a year at most, if that, she was always very sweet to me and was excited to see what was happening in my life. I have only the sweetest memories of her.
This afternoon my aunt asked me to come to her mother’s apartment and see what I would want since they were cleaning it out. I felt so bad, since it was not even my grandmother really, but she assured me she would’ve been happy about this. She said she would be happy to help me start my new road in life, and glad that some of this would remain in the family and not just completely given away.
I’m getting my first apartment soon, (God willing.) I had no furniture, no dishes, no towels. She gave me all I could need, and more- (including a TV!)
I’m feeling very blessed, and very saddened that I wasn’t able to get to know such a loved woman better.
