today I was sitting in the chick-fil-a parking lot (which opened two days ago!) waiting to get my delicious chicken house food and started to think about all of the things that I miss. I have been overwhelmed lately with how blessed I was in college. I never want to forget how faithful the Lord was to me at Clemson. Life here in Chicago is different. I am lonely and I wish I could just see some of my friends…my days are composed of schoolwork, children, and sleep. I laughed really hard the other day and felt weird…I think it was because I hadn’t laughed in a couple days. Weird, huh? I love Wheaton…don’t get me wrong. It is just different. It is just not Clemson.
i miss my young life team.
i miss having guy friends. i have one here…he is 9 years old.
i miss the blue house.
i miss el jimador and monterey’s.
i miss clemson sunsets.
i miss the ridge. (did I really just say that??)
i miss being able to walk around and see tons of people i know.
i miss my church.
i miss amy marshall.
i miss companionship.
i miss Tillman.
i miss being known.
i miss warm weather.
even though i miss so much…i am learning so much here. i wouldn’t have it any other way. even though sometimes the 1000 miles to carolina seems like a million.
