Today has been really good (hence the title). I am really lucky and I got a visit from olympic gold medalist volleyball player Ryan Millar!!! Talk about perks right? He brought me some really neat gifts from the USA volleyball team-- I got one of his jerseys, and one of Nicole Davis's jerseys who plays for the women's USA team. I also got a really cool signed volleyball, and some skull candy headphones. (he happens to be sponsored by skull candy) Not gonna lie, this was the highlight of my week... it will probably be the highlight of my whole stay here haha It was great for someone like him to take the time to come and see me, let alone come bearing gifts :P
So thank you, thank you, thank you to Ryan!! It's things like this that really inspire me to keep going. To top it off, I got some really nice mail and a package today. Lots of cool pictures drawn by little kids, and some nice letters. It blows my mind how kind and generous people can be. Even when they don't know me, they are quick to lend their love and support. It has been such an example to me, and I hope I come out of this a better person. Thanks to everyone who follows the blog, and has done so much for me. I truly have the greatest support system, and I couldn't do it without you guys. You make me realize how blessed I really am.
Tomorrow is day 10 in the sanctum, hopefully the rest of the days will fly by. And I think its worth mentioning that my hair is continuing to grow back, I have a fuzzy head now. It's crazy how excited I get when I realize it's growing. Definitely grateful for hair. Anways, that's all for tonight. I finally managed to have something to talk about!! Yayyy
Thanks again to EVERYONE!!
