I received my cross from a very kind, wonderful and caring family friend. I am thankful for her gift as I have been struggling a little in my personal life. I recently graduated college and was devastated when I did not get into graduate school. A year has now past and I have applied again to get into a graduate program. I am currently waiting to see if I get in this time around, better yet I am waiting to see what God’s plan for my life is. I was blessed to land a job in my career field but as this upcoming school year approaches it will be my last year with this job due to the fact that I have not entered a graduate program yet. I am trying to stay positive and trying to remember that there is a plan for my life. Because of this I am even more thankful for this cross.
