slightly bummed

So I have officially ruined my GPA.

Not really, but it's not longer a 4.0 as I was trying to maintain.

I missed getting an A by 0.73% in my Mental Health Nursing class, getting an A- at 92.27%.

Oh school will be a lot less stressful, I suppose.

Not the end of the world.

This weekend I went on a discernment retreat with the Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist! It was a really good weekend. I went into it not really knowing what to expect or what I wanted to take away from it, which I think was good because it helped me to be more open.
I got to talk with the vocation's director, Sister Joseph Andrew for about 10-15 minutes, which was really helpful. I just told her my entire vocational discernment journey and she said it sounded like I'm called to marriage, but to continue to pray and keep myself open to whatever God has in store!
I'm really excited about this! She said that as the "JP2 Generation" (as she calls us), one of the important jobs we have is to raise up the next generation's priests and religious. It will be a powerful witness to my children when they discern to be able to say "You know what, honey, your vocation is a beautiful gift from God and whatever He wants you to do is wonderful with your father and me. I even thought about being a religious sister but discerned that God wanted me to be married. We are praying for you and will be happy with whatever you discern."
It is just exciting to be at the point in my life where God is saying "It's alright for you to know a little bit more about your future now!" Usually I want to know everything at once, but this much is good for me now!
Anyways, sorry it's been so longs since I've last written! I've been so super busy with school!
God bless you!
