Gratitude

With less than 8 hours before we hit the road to head to Nogales, I really should be getting some rest, but I’m much too excited.

After five days of weirdly exhausting boot camp, I couldn’t be more antsy to get to work.

I’m a strongly visual person, and so when I daydream about the future, a strong image usually comes to mind. In this case, I have no strong image, no vague image, no image at all in imagining what lies ahead.

The next two weeks are so close I can feel my heart beginning to race, but I truly have no idea what I’m getting myself into here.

More than anything, I’m overwhelmed and overjoyed with a feeling of gratitude. Gratitude for a university that values faith and justice. Gratitude for professors that invest their entire hearts and souls to the Jesuit mission. Gratitude for an opportunity to put four years of study, reflection, practice, and intentionality to work in one last Creighton adventure. And last, but not least, one last road trip in the good old 12-passenger vans.

Nogales, here we come!!!

My favorite Popemoji is particularly appropriate today
