Time for a confession that will give you an insight into the crazy that is me: I am kind of expecting to wake up and it be March 1, 2006 and I'm in a hospital bed coming-to-consciousness in the recovery room after heart surgery. All of this is just a side-effect of coming off some serious anesthesia. Did I just imagine these last 3 years? How did this happen? Time seemed to crawl, but now looking back, it all seems a strange blur. The road was long, hard, and mostly difficult, but somehow I made it here. Talk about God's hand providing guidance and joy along the way! I would not have made it without Him. Now that it has happened I am...well, I have no clue what I am. Happy. Shocked. Undeserving. Appreciative. Terrified. Overwhelmed. Aflutter. Burdened. Shocked. Happy. Blessed.
I am a 24 year old Armenian girl who loves life. I have a gigantic family who all love to be loud and eat Armenian food constantly, drink, and dance. I am currently undergoing some seriously life changing experiences...so I guess we'll have to wait and see how I turn out. One thing's for sure though, God is always in control and He takes care of me. For that I am grateful!
