Hello there lovely people!
Is it really the end of September already? It feels like this entire year has just flown by in the blink of an eye.
The last week has felt like a bit of an upheaval. My mom was rushed to the hospital and had her appendix removed yesterday, so I’m worried about her. After the termination of half the administrative staff, I’m questioning my own job security. My current triad of tentative diagnoses all suggests that my body is not taking in enough oxygen, not properly converting said oxygen into energy, or a combination of the two.
Though it’s been a stressful month overall, it’s been filled with constant reminders to be grateful for the blessings in my life.
Now it’s your turn, what was your favorite part of September? What exciting plans do you have planned for the coming months? Discover anything fun on the inter-webs this week? Here are some gems that I stumbled across.
