I love you all so much… You may not know how it brightens my day to see when you comment or to check my “blog stats” and see all the hits. (Is it egotistical that I spend a vast amount of time reading and analyzing my blog stats?)
I really started this blog to help me deal with the end of my marriage and my new journey with GOD. To that end, it has been a wild success. I hope and pray that my words can be an inspiration to you all, a chance to pause and reflect, or even give you a chuckle.
I also want to take this opportunity to update you all on some going’s on in my life…
I have just completed the application process for admittance to Simpson University in Redding, CA. I am applying to the school of Education to pursue a Master of Arts in Education. This is the school where my dad teaches. I am waiting to hear from the school as to whether or not I have been accepted. (Please pray that I am accepted!)
My initial plan is to begin taking courses on-line beginning in January and to move to Redding sometime early in 2008. The lease on my apartment in Las Vegas is up in March of 2008, however I would consider moving before that time if a job opportunity presented itself. (Please pray in this direction!) I intend to focus my Master’s work in the direction of education technology, combining my passion for technology with my love of teachers and students. My goal would be to go to work for a private school or perhaps a school district as a technology coordinator and trainer; I want to “teach teachers” how to use Tech! There may also be an opportunity to teach at the college level, sometime in the future.
The opportunity to reconnect with my “family of origin” is so exciting to me. For the last 10 years or so, my life has revolved around Her family (who I love, don’t get me wrong) but I have lost most of my connection to my folks and my dear sister. During the time I was able to spend in Redding over Thanksgiving, I just fell in love with the town. It’s small compared with the places I’ve lived most of my life (just barely 100k people) but it’s big enough to be convenient. (They have the requisite Wal-Mart and Best Buy!) The SF Bay area is about 3.5 hr drive away… close enough for sporting events and culture get-aways. The hardest part, of course, will be leaving Fish behind. (Please pray HARD about this!)
