Catch Up and Unexpected News

So many things have been going on in my life lately I haven't had time to write on my blog. I've missed it so this is going to be kind of a catch-up post. I have been very busy at my internship, and I absolutely LOVE it! I will finish editing a manuscript this week and have been sending many press releases out to colleges and various print media for the book Military Fly Moms. TV and radio stations are next on the list. By the way Military Fly Moms won the Military Writers Society of America 2012 Creative NonFiction Award! Be sure to like Miltary Fly Moms on Facebook so you can stay updated on what Linda Maloney, the fabulous author, speaker, and mother of two is doing!

In other news, after experiencing pain in my left foot for about 8 months at least (I wrote about a doctor visit here), visting an orthopedic surgeon, and having x-rays done, I finally have an answer thanks to a DIFFERENT orthopedic surgeon. I found out today that I had 3 broken toes and didn't even know it! The doctor says they're healed and aligned right. I will start physical therapy as soon as possible for the swelling that has built up. SO thankful to God for His mercy!!! I can't say enough about His grace because I certainly wouldn't have made it through these past few months filled with tests, senior seminar speech, and publication projects without Him! 

I am still having pain but listening to my body, resting, elevating my feet, etc. I guess I can no longer use the joke that I have never broken anything. It's only been done on purpose by doctors. :) 

To top of this week, I received a letter in the mail saying I am one of thirty-one students at my school nominated to be included in the 2013 edition of Who's Who Among University and Colleges! So honored! Hard work is rewarded. If you are struggling right now, don't give up!

Congrats on the Who's Who honor. I received that honor back in 2009. It is awesome to have your hard work get recognized.
