Have a Blessed Day!

Sorry if this turns into more of a boring story of my life, but I really just want to express what a wonderful day I've had today!

I started off exhausted although I got a good nights sleep. Before my first class, I received a phone call for an interview I was trying to set up for an article for the local paper here. She wanted to meet up today, during my already crazy Wednesday, but I agreed. I got yelled at by my professor who I told in advance I'd be late to his class because of said interview, but look...there's not much I can do. When a story presents itself, it's my journalistic nature to grab it. And I will always be thankful I did.

The woman I met with was the mother of a 15 year old boy with cerebral palsy who has been helping out our college football team. I got to meet her, as well as her son. To just see his face light up when someone talked to him will forever stay with me. He was just so full of life. Instead of letting his disability hold him back, he embraced it saying CP stands for Collossal Personality, not Cerebral Palsy.

I also had a wonderful conversation with my pastor this afternoon that will greatly help me with my upcoming religion paper. It was great to get his point of view and relate it back to what I've learned in my class so far. It's just been a great day so far and I just feel so blessed this afternoon. I hope that you all have a blessed day as well!! God Bless!
