Subject: FW: October Update from Nicole Humphrey
I have been so excited this year to once again enjoy Fall! And what a vivid explosion of color! I hope Michigan fall was as beautiful as Virginia fall. Reds, magentas, oranges, yellows, browns, greens… wow! And the crunching noises of fall leaves! Yay! I have been driving with my windows down and my sunglasses on… ahh!
Well, I have acquired a new client, a little boy who is 5. He’s staffed at 10 hours a week (which means I spend 10 hours a week with him/his family), so I’m working about 24 billable hours each week and then my paperwork and meetings on top of that. I feel like it is a very full schedule. I am set to close out one of the little girls in about two weeks, and then her older sister a month later. I’ve been working this job for almost 5 months now. I feel as though I have grown and learned a lot in this time. I want to say thank you again to all of the incredible parents reading this email. You work a tough job daily. I admire your grace!
I finished my 5th class here at LU, in the middle of October and started on the next one! I am now 1/4th of the way finished with my degree! 15 classes to go… or something like that.
I was able to spend the weekend with Garrett in Charleston, SC recently, and we had a blast together!
My times of meditation and contemplation have lately included a study on wisdom, knowledge and understanding. I’ve noticed that the three words are usually linked. I’d love to hear your thoughts and perspectives on the three words. The two places I’ve been seriously chewing on are Job 38-40 and Proverbs.
As thanksgiving approaches, I’ve been pondering all that I have to be thankful for, and the list keeps growing. I hope the Lord is reminding you daily of all the blessings, he as a loving heavenly Father bestows upon us!
Until He comes! (or next month)
P.S. Christmas music is here!
