May Memories

I decided to take a break from my daily personal growth exercise to catch you up on what else has been going on in my life. If you’ve been following along with my blog then you know that I am overdue for a monthly review! Last month was full of many blessings and opportunities for personal growth. I have continued to move forward with hope despite the frustration of being unemployed. I do so by making the most of my time off, doing things that would be harder to do if I had a full-time job. As you will see, I’ve been doing so with family, friends, traveling, and spending more time reading.

More dead-end job interviews…

Brother and sister-in-law visited from GA. I hadn’t seen them since the beginning of January and, as my brother and I are close, I was excited that they could finally meet my boyfriend (P.S. my brother approves!) We all had fun at the Ranger’s game together.
