Has this ever happened to you? It's one of the worst feelings in the world and, though it has happened before--albeit much more harshly--it is not something that you get used to. 'The First Cut is the Deepest' is not applicable here. If anything this cut hurts much, much worse as it goes much deeper than the last, cutting all the way to the core of everything I've trained to do and all that I want to do.
I cannot even begin to describe to you the roller coaster of emotions, thoughts, and feelings that this past week has been but I can tell you that I have been surrounded by the love and support of those that I love the most during this sudden change of events. Jeff--who was quick to remind me that we made it through this the last time and only about 4 months into our dating relationship--has been more than amazing by offering his best support and encouragement. He even attended an IIDA [Interior Designer's Assoc.] networking event with me; although I'm not sure that the chili cook-off didn't have anything to do with his willingness to attend ;) My parents have also been extremely supportive, calling and checking in on me daily to offer encouragement and advice. Emily/Roomie helped me design and create some really cute contact cards for me to pass out at said networking event.

Ok, before this lump forming in my throat turns into more sobbing I will leave you with my memory verse that I will be dwelling on these next two weeks.
"And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus." Phillipians 4:19
