On June 24,
I went to the DMV to take my permit test. I have taken before and failed by just a little bit, so I was so nervous and anxious. BUT GUESS WHAT!! I passed, I am so proud of myself. I really owe thanks to my family for believing in me, because I really wasn’t sure if I could do this..
Also, June 24th marked my one year after my shoulder replacement surgery. I am so thankful to Dr. Kam for all he has done for me. He is an amazing doctor. An I am so thankful to have had him as my doctor.
Yesterday, I came home from school and my mom said she had something for me. She pointed to T.V. stand where there was a clear bag. I was confused about what it was until, I realized that it was……MY PORT! I was so excited! It is a memory I get to keep. It symbolizes all I have went through and the end of a part of my journey. IT IS SO AMAZING! God is good, and I am so thankful that he has been by my side. As well as giving me my family to walk this journey with me.
Yay!! I made it into the Junior League Competition my high school fashion class is doing. I worked so hard on my entered project. It was a struggle but I made it! Now onto the Fairtale themed portion/runway portion. I am so proud of myself! I worked to hard and it paided off.
Now I am going to go on to the next round which is Fairytale themed. We have to create an outfit that correlates with our fairytale we were given. We get to walk that outfit down the runway and get it judged and see who the final winners are. A lot of the judges really believe in me and one even told me that he thinks that I am going to win. I am beginning to work on my Aladdin themed project. I love Aladdin and you already know I am making an outfit inspired by Jasmine. It is going to be a bit more high fashion though. I can’t to see the final project and walk down the runway in it.
Yay! My port is out! I went in yesterday afternoon for the surgery. I was a bit nervous, but the excitement took over. This is a huge step in my journey! It to me, signifies the end, like the real end. I am so happy and thankful to all the people who have walked this journey with me. An the people who have encouraged me and lifted me up. Everyone who has fought right along side me, especially my family who has never left me! All the glory goes to God! In him anything is possible, you just need to believe and put your faith in him! “I CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST WHO STRENGTHENS ME.” Philippians 4:13

Happy New Year’s everyone!
2016 was a pretty good year, but I can’t wait to see what 2017 has to hold for me and my family. I pray that God blesses you all this year! Remember, no matter what you go through, God will always be there and will guide you this year. ??
