I know its been a while since I have done an update. Mom has been in South Africa a little over a month now. So many people have asked me if I miss my parents or not. I have to say that I miss them in a way of seeing them around but I also know that its time to grow up and to become my own person. I will say that its different and weird not having them around but knowing that they are out having adventures of their own. I will always love them and miss their friendship. When they come home, it will be interesting to see the interactions and just see how much I am growing up. With this being said, I am excited to hear their stories and adventures.
Things I have learned:
-To depend on others for help
-To become my own friend
-To have time to work on my own hobbies (writing, drawing, jewelry making)
-To pay bills and manage a household
-To really know everything is going to be fine and that I am capable of taking care of me, my sister and a house which I had always questioned in my own mind.
-To believe in myself more and depend on God
-To know God has it all in his control and that I don't have to spiral out of control (mental thinking)
Until next time-
