Big Trip

Hey bloggers! This holiday season has been extremely busy for me and I'm sure it's been busy for you too. I had a wonderful Christmas with both parents, and now I'm in the process of celebrating Christmas with my other family, Mary and Richard! I'm sure I haven't mentioned any of this in any of my blog posts. Mary and Richard are taking Megan and me on a cruise!!! Megan and I drove to Dallas this afternoon and we are flying to Florida bright and early in the morning. We will be gone for a whole week, and I am so excited to get away for a little while. Of course, the hardest part will be the lack of cell phone service meaning I won't get to talk to Andrew for a whole week. It's difficult enough not getting to see each other for a month, and not talking makes it seem unbearable. But I know that I'm going to have a wonderful time on this trip, and I can talk to Andrew as much as I want to when I get back! I promise I will take dozens of pictures and post every last one to Facebook! See you in a week or so! And I will remember to blog more on my phone too :)

PS. In grad school related news, I did not get an invitation to interview at UTHSCSA. One OT school down, three to go. Keep your fingers crossed that someone wants me :)

I'd Rather BE....

10 A wife of noble character who can find?
She is worth far more than rubies.
11 Her husband has full confidence in her
and lacks nothing of value.
12 She brings him good, not harm,
all the days of her life.
13 She selects wool and flax
and works with eager hands.
14 She is like the merchant ships,
bringing her food from afar.
15 She gets up while it is still night;
she provides food for her family
and portions for her female servants.
16 She considers a field and buys it;
out of her earnings she plants a vineyard.
17 She sets about her work vigorously;
her arms are strong for her tasks.
18 She sees that her trading is profitable,
and her lamp does not go out at night.
19 In her hand she holds the distaff
and grasps the spindle with her fingers.
20 She opens her arms to the poor
and extends her hands to the needy.
21 When it snows, she has no fear for her household;
for all of them are clothed in scarlet.
22 She makes coverings for her bed;
she is clothed in fine linen and purple.
23 Her husband is respected at the city gate,
where he takes his seat among the elders of the land.
24 She makes linen garments and sells them,
and supplies the merchants with sashes.
25 She is clothed with strength and dignity;
she can laugh at the days to come.
26 She speaks with wisdom,
and faithful instruction is on her tongue.
27 She watches over the affairs of her household
and does not eat the bread of idleness.
28 Her children arise and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praises her:
29 “Many women do noble things,
but you surpass them all.”
30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.
31 Honor her for all that her hands have done,
and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.

Proverbs 31:10-31
