I am new to this whole blogging thing, but I decided to go ahead and give it a whirl. So, here's my first post! You may have just stumbled upon this blog, or you may be a family or friend of mine. Thank you for being here. This blog is mainly for me to express my thoughts and feelings. I love writing when I have time because I believe that writing is a fantastic stress reliever. And who couldn't use a little less stress? (Although we learned in one of my classes this past semester that if a person doesn't have some stress, he'd be dead. But that's another matter). Anyway, you may be asking yourself why this blog is called Blue-Eyed Breather. That's an easy question. I have blue eyes, but I also have a genetic disease called Cystic Fibrosis (CF). I was diagnosed with this disease when I was two weeks old and have been fighting it ever since. With CF, every breath is a struggle. However, every breath I take symbolizes one more victory over the hold CF tries to grasp in my life. I live every day with purpose, treasuring it because I know my "tomorrow" is not guaranteed. I thank the Lord for my hope in Him, and I trust that He will never leave me nor forsake me.
What else about me...well I am currently in my second semester at Baylor University. Sic 'em bears!! If you've been watching any sports lately, you will have seen how wonderfully my school is doing in football and basketball and how well-known we're becoming. It's a great year to be a Baylor bear (although let's face it, it's ALWAYS a great time to be a Baylor bear!). I love the Lord with all my heart, all my soul, and all my mind. I strive to live a life that gives Him glory. I am also so blessed with incredible friends and family. They are my rock and my encouragement.
That's enough about me. Unfortunately, I have homework that needs to be done. Have a great Martin Luther King Jr. holiday, everyone!
