Giving HOPE.

I haven't been taking a lot of pictures lately, or doing anything really lately, so I see now that I'm forced to blog about what I'm thinking about at the moment. At this moment, I'm thinking about my brother.

Since summer vacation started, I haven't really gotten a break. I was so looking forward to my 3 months off, and now I'm working more than I was even going to school. For some people, this would be the worst. Eight hour work days compared to four hour school days. But I just so happen to have the best job in the world. I work with autistic children, giving them hope for a better tomorrow.

I feel like in some small way, this is helping Colton. Whenever something clicks for my clients, I think about how something may be clicking for him. When they finally are able to get out the words they mean, I think maybe Colton is having a conversation with someone.

Next semester I start my pre-clinicals, and I really hope that I get the chance to work with these kids! They are seriously such a joy, and although they face challenges, at the end of the day they always seem to have a smile on their faces. We could learn something from that.

On a different note,
I'm having a hard time getting over The Hunger Games!
(more like having a hard time getting over Peeta..)
Any good books I should read?


  1. Great post! You're so sweet.
    Read pride and prejudice!

  2. I just started the Hunger Games yesterday, and am almost done with the first one. I can't wait to get my hands on the other two!!
