St. Monica and I are Becoming Well Acquainted...

                              So I think that I've mentioned in previous posts that I'm finishing my last semester of college. And working full time. And helping to run a student organization. And working to build a good relationship with both my family and boyfriend, M. So I was thinking one day and thought "You know what sounds like a really, really good idea? Starting to look for an internship on top of all of my already burdensome obligations! I couldn't possibly be offered an internship at the first law firm I walk into! And even if I were, they wouldn't want me to start right away! That would be silly business!" So can you guess what happened? That's right! I was offered an internship in the very first law firm I walked into and they wanted my to start the next week! Be careful what you pray for people, you just might get it.

                          I am truly overjoyed that I was able to find an internship so quickly, I've had friends search for months to no avail. I really do know how blessed I was to walk into the position I got. I am getting wonderful experience and would not trade a minute of it for the world. The one thing that has suffered is my free-time, the time in which I would blog, or I don't know, sleep.... Oh sleep you ever elusive creature.

                    The good news is that I graduate in less than a month and then I can find a full time paralegal job. Then I can quit my clothes store job. Then I can start a regular blog schedule. Then I can run away to the farm more often and love on some babies. And sew with The Russian. Then sleep and I will no longer be mortal enemies.

                  Oh and Saint Monica is the patron saint of patience, which I have little of at the moment due to the fact that I am so close to graduating that I can almost literally taste it. (Oh graduation cake, thous wilst be mine) Oh and the sleep deprivation  that's not really helping the patience. But praying to Saint Monica is and will continue to do so.

        So if you find yourself with a spare moment I would really appreciate a quick prayer to the saint of your choice, really any ear works! Although the Blessed Mother does have some mighty pull, you know how sons are when their momma asks them something. The Lord is no exception! Thank you all so much for reading and I hope that you have blessed day where ever you are!


  1. You know we're praying for you here! Hang in there!

  2. Thank you so much! I appreciate that so much! I can't wait to come out and see all the progress y'all have made on the farm.
