Overcoming Exhaustion

This weekend was amazing! I was blessed with the opportunity of going to Winterfest with my favorite group of teenagers in the world- the Mayfair youth group! It was such an encouraging weekend full of inspiring and informative lessons, uplifting praise and worship, and snow flurries that were beautiful!!

I would take the time to go into greater detail of this weekend (and maybe I will later), but right now I am just so exhausted! I might be getting sick. I feel kinda achy and I am so sleepy. But I CANNOT get sick! There is too much to do this week.

I spent 4 hours in the library researching for my paper that is due Wednesday. (The rough draft was due today, but I missed that deadline.) I have a test tomorrow, more reading that I MUST catch up on, a test in British Writers at 8:30 in the morning, a midterm Thursday in counseling class (not to mention a lot of work to catch up on in there)... then there is the constant work responsibility. I would have way too much going on the 1 week that I am lacking the energy to handle it.

But I am not going to worry. Stress and anxiety never helps a person feel better. I'm just going to take it all in stride, get all I can done, and hope that I am met on all ends with patience from those that I may disappoint this week. On that note, I am going to end this blog and get back to work... because I refuse to stay up past midnight.

Jenna,
We're glad you came to Winterfest with us this weekend....I really appreciate you taking time out to come back and love our teens. I hope you're not getting sick, though! And I hope the studying and working will be stress-free...if that's possible.

Again, thanks for coming and being with our teens. I know our teens were blessed.

Hey Jenna! I hope you didn't get sick--because I sure did! I've had a horrible fever since I got home Sunday night. I think it's finally starting to go down a little though.
It was soooo good seeing you again! I wish you'd been with us, but I know the 8th graders were blessed!
Hope to visit soon!
