Hello! Wow it has been ages since I posted so here is an update. Last Sept I started my Anglican Lay Minister training and I have been through a mixture of highs and lows. I never realised that a) it would be so difficult and b) the amount of coursework involved.
When I started, I felt very much, woooh what am I doing here – it was obvious to me I was totally out of my depth. Each week I planned to leave the following week… This continued until around January when I actually started to enjoy the course and the challenges it brought.
Running our business and doing the coursework has meant working 7 days a week since last Sept – and I finally finished all coursework for the first year last Saturday! Yaaaaaaaaaay I now have 6 weeks until the second year starts (2 Sept) to do what I want!
So my highs and lows – in no particular order…
And I feel I should mention my ultimate low last October when my best friend in the whole world Sue passed away. I couldn’t write this without mentioning her. She was such a bright light in my life for nearly 50 years and was the sister I never had. This will be my ultimate memory of my first year. God bless her.
So there it is…. I am so sorry I have been pretty much absent… I will try to remedy this for the future and now have 6 weeks of freedom yaaaaaaaaaaaay!
God bless you all x
