Today I just wanted to write- I have so much to be entirely thankful for. This past week has been insane and I have been really under the weather with a bug and just not feeling up to par. I have been laying in bed with a fever and stuff and I am just really excited for what the future holds for me.

Thinking back to last year I held onto dreams of going to school and being an active part of my senior year. I just wanted to do some reflection of then and now and I am really actually proud of how far I have come and what has happened because it's honestly a huge step from where I was to where I am now.

Last year I was struggling to imagine going to school... Now I am slowly getting back into the swing of things and I have been seizure free through many of my colds and now infection that I have!

Six O'clock might have been dinner time for some but was IV time for me... Now I haven't been on a constant IV in months and I am off many of my medications!

College was a distant word and seemed impossible... College is now a main focus and I am applying for scholarships and have sent in my application!

Walking seemed to be a chore if not impossible without assistance... Now I am walking without any assistance and getting stronger.

Things then didn't seem so bad and now I am confident in everything that I am getting though. Today I am really encouraged that even though right now I am having a hard time staying in school and getting good grades because I have been so sick I do believe that things aren't impossible and I am excited to be able to do as much as I have been able to do because last year a lot of these things seemed impossible.

This song hit me hard and made me realize there is no such thing as a point of no improvement and I am very proud to say God is still and always will be in the miracle business!

Am I at the point of no improvement?
What are the deaths I still dwell in?
I try to excel but I feel no movement
Can I be free of this unreleasable sin

Never underestimate my Jesus
your tellin me that there's no hope
Im tellin you your wrong
Never underestimate my Jesus
when the world around you crumbles
He will be strong he will be strong

I throw up my hands
oh the impossibilities
Frustrated and tired
Where do I go from here?
Now Im searchin' for
The confidence I lost so willingly
Overcoming these obstacles
Is overcoming my fears


I think I can't
I think I can't
but I think you can
I think you can
gather my inefficiencies and
place them in your hands
place them in your hands
place them in your hands.


You will be strong (3x)

Have a wonderful day! I hope you all are doing well and continue to have a great week! I am going to try to keep this updated as much as possible since I continue to get encouraged to keep the blog going. I am also excited to get school work rolling as well. Although I am feeling crummy inside I am starting to feel more and more motivated to do good on the inside!

Wishing good health to those who read this,
