College is over. I have waited for the freedom from it for so long. It’s funny how long you wait for something and still how unsettling it inevitably feels when it arrives. It feels so strange that my beautiful summer is finally here. I’m thrilled, of course, to spend three months in Houston again. Impact Houston has become like a second home for me, and I feel blessed to be a part of another summer there.
But I don’t have the normal giddiness about a coming trip. I can’t sleep like normal. I also waited until about three hours ago to pack – a few things will never change.
Still, I can’t help but feel sad. I can’t help but think about leaving in October and feel like I miss my family and friends already. I can’t help but feel nervous about the speed of my fundraising. I can’t avoid worrying about how it turns out. Adulthood seems to have creeped up on me. I thought I was independent and had it rough in school. Now I have to do what, pay who and ask for how much? Yeesh.
Goal for the summer: pray more + worry less = higher productivity.
Please, pray for me as I continue the fundraising process for my two years in Honduras. God will provide, but I still have to do my part. Pray that I do my best to ask for support and let God do the rest.
Thank you to everyone who has already been so generous with your money and your prayers. You are such a blessing.
