still finding peace

Photobucket The above photo was taken at JJ's Market, a neat coffee shop and convenience store near downtown. The atmosphere there is just perfect, and their hot tea is phenomenal. It's such a cozy, retro little spot. I'll definitely be going back!

In other news, could you say a prayer for me? I found out a few weeks ago that I'm anemic. I've been taking iron pills, and they aren't really doing much except make me sick at my stomach. I had a huge paper due this morning, and another one due Friday. (On Tolstoy, though, so it should be interesting.) I'm just exhausted. There are four weeks left in the semester, and it's going to be a rough four weeks at that. 

I've also been missing my mom a lot. It comes and goes in spells. I don't know if it's normal to still feel such grief four years after the fact. No one ever taught me how to grieve. 

Despite feeling so defeated and exhausted, God has blessed me immensely. He's given me such wonderful friends and family, and for that I am thankful. I really shouldn't complain about anything! Sometimes, I just have to vent and throw my feelings out there to whomever might be reading.



  1. I'll be praying for you Katy!! I know there are such heavy days..especially when it comes to feeling so sick...but when that defeated feeling comes, I just try to remember that God fights for those who trust and put their faith in Him..and that He is bigger than any feelings. It is still hard, and still discouraging..but He is always with us through anything. And we can take hope, even if so tiny, in that fact. :)

    and CUTE coffee shop!! :)

    Have a good day! Every days a new day.
