This week was amazing- in more ways that one. Professionally, I completed my first FULL week of teaching and coaching middle school volleyball. What an awesome and exhausting experience. It’s so rewarding to be able to do something you love; so much so, that the fatigue that you feel from long hours doesn’t bother you. I’m so thankful for the opportunity to do what I love.
What was the real exciting part of the week for me was the Democratic National Convention. I blinked back tears as I watched Michelle and Barack give wonderfully exciting speeches that have further propelled our country into anticipation of what’s to come in November. As I’ve said before, I’ve always been hopeful that I would experience an African-American president during my lifetime. I just didn’t think it would be this soon. As I watch Senator Obama execute his campaign with dignity and class, I’m so overwhelmed with pride. There really aren’t enough words to thoroughly express how I feel, but I’m working on it.
All in all, it was a pretty good week. I’m still holding on…and I guess that’s a good thing.
Pray for me…
