Coming to you live from Oxford, Ohio and let me tell you today has been a day.
Why may you ask am I in Ohio? Time will tell! I am here at the founding place of my fraternity, Beta Theta Pi, in Oxford for a special leadership conference. I am not sure what we will be doing, but I know (or my parents have said) this will be a great experience. I am excited to learn more about Beta and meet others from all around the world. It will be an experience. Also, this is my first time in Ohio so I am excited to experience that.
Anyways, I am going to do my best to keep you all updated, but until Monday I may be a little here and there. I don't really know yet. But today's day of travel was one to remember.
I do not. Let me repeat: do not like traveling alone. I don't care where it is I am going to, I don't like to be in a space full of people by myself. It may be because I don't like having to really be in charge, but either way I don't like it. It is also not easy when the travel gets all messed up.
I flew from Arkansas to Chicago to Dayton.
I had a connecting flight that was 45 min long and naturally my first flight wasn't on time making everything else get messy. I was also flying an airline that I had never flown before. So that was also confusing. The hardest part was that my ride was leaving the airport at 9:30 and if I missed it, I missed it. My second flight then got delayed having me arrive to Dayton at 9:30, which was technically too late. I of course panicked. My mom reminded me that I was in a safe place and God had a hand in all of this. Something I easily forget when I am stressed. It may not have been my plan, but it was a plan and a plan God was and always is making for me. After a couple of conversations with a director of the program, he had arranged for the bus to wait on me. I then got Starbucks, stopped a prayed, got on the next flight where I didn't have anyone sitting next to me #blessed, and even arrived early and was able to meet my friend. I did all that worrying and stressing today for no reason. Life is sometimes funny that way! So next time your plan falls apart, let this remind you that another plan is in place, one better than your original one. God's safe place is the only place I want to be. I will keep this in mind as the unknown is heavy over the next couple of days. I can't wait to learn a lot and share my experience with you. Stay tuned and keep us in your prayers. Being thankful does have it's rewards! Remember that!
Southern and Thankful
Blessed is an understatement when it comes to my life. Each and every day I am amazed by God's steadfast love. In return, I have claimed this space to show my thanks and whatever else comes along the way.

I pray God has a grand purpose for me and I plan to get there with a little Southern and a lot of Thanks! Join me!
