Old Struggles, New Discoveries.

Wow. It has been months since I have posted on my blog. I apologize for the neglect.
I have been quite busy this summer.
I have moved into my own little place. It is quite cute and I really enjoy it. I live close to my school, close to a number of parks, close to the river, close to a number of stores, and close to all the action of Downtown, while far enough away to have my little safe haven.
I have recently started working at the campus library. It truly is wonderful. I get excited to go to work, and that is a great feeling. I just love being around books! And the people I work with are really fantastic.
Little Miss started daycare recently as well. We're still getting use to it, but hopefully we will both be able to look forward to her getting to spend time with her friends. I'm really hoping she learns how to play with other kids and not be afraid of them. I feel like the social benefits will help her much more than staying home with me did.
I am trying out different churches. I went to one right around the corner from my house. We walked there, which was great! At first I was unsure of what to expect. I was attending a pretty big church before, which I loved, and this one was much much smaller. However, when I walked through the doors, I was immediately greeted and welcomed by many people. I was introduced to others, invited to sit with people, and to enjoy myself. Little Miss made a friend with a lady right away. She even sat with her, who I found out was the pastor's daughter and was just a  year younger than me. We were shown around the church and invited to come back and join the Bible Study. I may take them up on the offer.
I have been struggling lately. I have never been good at the prayer thing, and I'm really not good at listening and knowing when God is answering me. But I'm working on it. And I think this may be where God wants me. I may try out a couple of nearby churches, to be sure. But I think that this may be where I need to be right now.
Things are going to get better. I feel that. I believe that. I have been struggling with more than just my spiritual well-being, but my social, emotional and psychological as well.

This post has been more of a diary entry than anything. That's okay. This is something that I've been wanting to discuss, and am just now finding the strength to do so.
I will probably go into more detail on some of the things I've mentioned at a later date. For now, I think I'll sign off.
