School is Almost Finished!!!

I must apologize to those of you who look forward to reading my blogs. I am going through blogging withdrawal, and I would like to end this school year with a positive note.

I only have one more exam left, and that will be tomorrow at 9AM. It is my hardest one, and I am going to be doing much studying later on today.

Right now I am cherishing this wonderful day that God has given to us. The day is beautiful, although the storm clouds have overtaken the sun. It's brilliant face is hiding, and now I look forward to an earth shaking thunderstorm(oh, how I wish!). The wind is balmy and strong, and I hope it will continue like this for the rest of the day.

Oh, I love this time of year! I have never felt so alive as I have these past three days when the sun was shining with all of it's might, and the skies were blue! It seems like everyone here on campus felt the same way, and I have enjoyed the company of these people immensely.

I was writing in my journal last night, reflecting on this past year. I have been so blessed by the people that I have met here. And to think that I almost didn't want to come! What a community! What a wonderful group of people! Yes, we all have our faults, and perfection does not abound here. However, we love one another and show that love when we sit in the sun talking, listening to people play guitar, whatever the case may be.

I am horrible with goodbyes. Although I know that many of the people here are coming back in the fall, there are a few that I may never see again until heaven! I want to tell those people that I love them with all my heart, and it was such a pleasure to get to know them this year! (You know who you are!)

This week is going to be bittersweet, but I am going to take advantage of every moment.
Love, Ash
