important reminders

Today I was suddenly reminded of the big picture of life and how blessed I truly am.

The petty things I'd been struggling with and so wrapped up in this morning lost all their importance when a young man blacked out, had a seizure and drove his car into the concrete pillar in front of my school this afternoon. His foot was still on the gas when the car was stopped. Luckily no one was hurt (he had cuts and bruises and may have hit the windshield) but if he had been a mere 12" to the left that car would have missed the pillar and come straight through our glass front building, through the front desk, the waiting area and beyond. I was actually walking toward the front door on my way out for break when it happened.

God was very, very good to us yesterday. Very good indeed.

a Creative One

It's December already, how scary! Yesterday at was my last day as an "adaptive", next week I move up the the "creative" class and a new schedule - marking my halfway point through school. Wow that went by fast! Yay for Theory class in the mornings & salon time in the afternoons now! (Except for Saturdays if course, those stay the same with salon time all day...)
