For the past month and a half, I’ve been facing one of the biggest challenges of my life. Although I knew it was coming, I had absolutely no idea that it would turn my life upside in the manner that it has. This struggle has caused me to shed thousands of tears, isolate myself from my family, and scream like a mad man. To make matters worse, I’m the one who chose this path…….. well the fact is, I chose this degree program. You see…. I knew good and well that graduate statistics was a requirement for my Master of Science in Psychology. I also knew that math is not my strong suit. Nevertheless, I took on the challenge, and it has left my life in a whirlwind.
To say that I covet your prayer is an understatement. Although I am confident that I will pass this class. I’m quite sure that I’m walking away from it with a limp, my arm in a sling, and a black eye. Seriously folks, this class is insane.
In addition to this craziness, my wife and I are also working through the process of foster care licensure. Although, we were previously foster parents in the state of New Mexico, we were not prepared for the amount of paperwork needed in the state of Arizona. I am amazed at the number of forms, that we are tasked to complete, that ask for the same information multiple times. It’s been quite a chore to get it all done. Currently we are waiting to complete 6 weeks of training. However, I’m waiting to finish my statistics class before taking that on. If all goes well we should be licensed by this summer.
I apologize for not publishing a weekly anecdote today. I simply ran out of time this weekend. Nevertheless, I wish each and every one of you an amazing week. May each of you go out and be all that God created you to be.
