Catch a Breath Before It Evaporates

Wow, didn't realize it had been so long since I'd last posted, over 10 days ago! Life has gotten hectic, as it tends to do, which is my excuse for not blogging a little more frequently. Of course, though, I'm finally starting to realize that life is never going to settle down. It will always be busy, the things that come rushing up to me and demand to be accomplished "right now" will keep cycling back around, and even if I had a full year of quiet time with absolutely nothing to do, it would probably not be enough. Maybe that's a reason to long for heaven. A land with no insignificant demands on our time, but rather eons to spend learning and growing and stretching our minds. Now that's something to look forward to!

Even this entry must be short as I'll have to dash back up home and pick up the rest of the family to go to the Slavic Church tonight for a choir fundraiser for the mission trip. I think it will be fun, something to do, at least!

Started the process of applying to an MA in Psychology online program from CalSouthern. It's not regionally accredited, only downside, but it's nationally accredited, affordable tuition and offers all the classes I need to sit for the boards and become a licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in California. And since, at this point, I hope and plan to stay in California long enough to practice as an MFT and build up a good number of hours, it is probably a good enough program. As soon as my transcripts get there, I'll be able to start classes, with my target date being March 1 of this year. If the program is at the academic level that I'm looking for, I plan to complete my MA in Psychology in the next 2 to 2 1/2 years. I'm super excited!!! Finally being able to realize my dream, while still continuing to work. And if it doesn't work, oh well, I'll just have to save up my pennies and plan to go to Southern or a Christian university in about 3-5 years' time.

Michael is starting to drive now! He's doing quite a good job and I can't believe how quickly he's grown up. Today he drove me and my mom to church and back, on the side roads of course. He's very calm and yet quite assured as he zooms down the road and slips into tight parking spaces. We're all growing up, even as I try my best to hold on to the years but they insist on evaporating with the morning light. I was going through old pictures today, we had some great times back then. Family, college, friends. I miss those. . .

  1. Wow, I am so glad you found a school. As long as you can sit for the board, it does not seem to matter about how the school is accredited. That is good news. Yes, days fly into years and we are getting older quick. But it is nice to reflect and take a breath through the craziness of life. I like reading your blog. Don't let another 10 days go before you post again :)
