**insert cheesy friendship quote @kdcole93 ⚾️
3 years ago, this past Friday, was the last time I ever danced. I was home from NY for about a week and in a late night rehearsal. I jumped, landed wrong, and my whole knee cap and surrounding muscles and tendons were stretched and ripped out of place. I fell back onto the floor, laying there screaming. Rushed to the emergency room, where they were no help at all. Months past, no healing. Finally through tons of physical therapy, I could at least walk. Eventually I got a job, and left the dance world. I gave everything up. High school, friends, normality. Everything up for the life of a professional ballet dancer. But that wasn’t the plan. So at that point, I felt like a nobody. 10 hour days after day of the week at the studio, studying, creating, moving, all for nothing. A mission trip to the Dominican Republic changed everything. A medical mission team from the University of Alabama school of medicine happen to be staying in the same area as we were. They invited me to their clinic the next day set up in a small village in an abandon school building. That was it. I came home, and got my prerequisites for under my belt. Everyday I think about ballet. It’s in my blood and I hope to never loose that. But the fast few months have been a waiting game. I’ve had a four month wait to find out if I was accepted in the nursing school of my dream, and the most competitive in the state. So this past Friday, exactly three years to the day, I got accepted into nursing school. That timing was not just a coincidence, but a plan. These past few years have been so planned out I can’t even explain the grace I’ve been given. Jesus, you are the center of it all. 3 years. That was the plan.
