Wanted: My MRS. degree

I feel the need this evening to say that whoever said "Absence makes the heart grow fonder" certainly was being rather gentle. It's been two weeks or so since I've seen Andy and that's just too long. But school is going better and I'll hopefully have a pretty good weekend of catching up on stuff. I certainly have a junior case of "senioritis" and am more than ready to graduate in the spring with my AAS. And then comes the MRS. :-)

It's been a challenge of great magnitude lately to stay here at school and focus on what I'm learning. My desire to be with Andy reminds me that God certainly knew what He was doing when He designed man and woman to be together. Patience is certainly not easy, but it will be worth it in the end.

Andy is coming down in less than two weeks and it can't come soon enough. But for now, I plug away at my homework and hope this week I can get a little bit more sleep. The wedding is aproximately 9 months away and graduation only 8. It's amazing how fast time really does go by yet it feels like it goes so slowly. It is true that God's timing is perfect though, so another step in my journey of trust is needed. Although at times I feel as though it's one step forward, two steps back. Praise the Lord for His patience and compassion on me. And for an amazing man that can't wait to marry me.
