Newly Sharpened Pencils

You never know how much you love something until it's gone... I love school. I love learning. I don't believe that anyone ever takes advantage of it the way that they should. I just turned in my deferment forms, and I am officially out of school until fall. I am free, and yet it feels like an empty void. I would love a break if I chose it, but when you are forced into it it just isn't the same--especially when much of the time will be devoted to recovering from a brain surgery. I could really use a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils--school supplies never looked so good. Take advantage of learning. It's sooo important.

Remember there are different ways to learn or to be "schooled". Cuddling up with your puppy and a new book is a good start, learning something new that you have never done before, learning a new language etc. By the way may I highly recommend all the Jane Austen books and the follow up Diaries (I have Cpt. Wentworth's Diary, Mr. Knightly's Diary etc.) Oh and hanging out with your Aunt on the weekends, that's always a new learning experience

Just been thinking about you. You are in our prayers. I can only imagine how hard it would be for you not to be in school. Hang in there!
