The first weeks of the new year have been a whirlwind. Between giving my sermon and the aftermath and navigating my growing caregiver responsibilities, I feel utterly exhausted. Strangely, I also feel energized by everything going on and I’m looking forward to the coming months. I’m hoping to make a trip to the UK later this year and I’m also teaching at an education conference in June. My calendar is much fuller than it has ever been, which is amazing. I sort of wish that my love life would take off, but I’m just going to bask in the wonders that are currently in my life.
