2 weeks is not enough

*This post is pretty personal, a reflection on the life changing 2 week mission trip I was blessed to go on this summer. I started writing it the night before I boarded the plane back for America, so I was quite emotional at the time.

To the Guys It Didn’t Work Out With

Blessed to be Stressed

   I am blessed to be stressed. This may be an odd sounding statement, but it's very true.    As a college student, I know that I'm guilty of complaining about how stressed I am.
