Thanksgiving Post

As much as I complain about my life, I have so much to be thankful for. One of the things that most frequently comes to the top of my list is my job. My faith aside, it's the best thing that ever happened to or for me. I am so thankful that I get to work at a university where I have the opportunity to get a great education at a reduced rate. I am especially blessed to get to work in the department that I do. I may not bounce out of bed ready to go to work every day, but I certainly don't dread going. My job has literally kept me sane, forced me to (mostly!) keep it together and keep moving forward toward a better future.

I've been plagued by doubts lately. While my financial future is looking up, I begin to doubt that I'll have the guts to seek single parenthood. I doubt my abilities to set aside my selfishness and be a good parent. I have to keep focused on my current goals of finishing school while trying to get out of debt and make a decision at that point. After all, at this time, it is a "moo" point (Friends reference, one of my favorites!) since I am not in the position to move forward financially. But I purchased a bed this month and I went with the version that had a trundle rather than three extra drawers because, maybe, I'll need that trundle at some point. . .

I hope that you have a wonderful Thanksgiving and as we move into 2013, I hope that you will see the accomplishments of your goals.

Oh, and if you know anything about Foucalt's views on medicine, I'm completely lost and apparently the travel of the season should not interfere with our ability to research and write a paper for class. Sigh. I could use some help!
