For me, it was a hard adjustment to a new school, one very different from the one I came from. It is a much larger campus, both is population and size, and the kids come from a different socio-economic background. I wasn't well accepted by the kids and some classrooms and situations were a challenge.
God allowed for friendships to form though, and by the end of the school year, I felt more comfortable and knew I had once again formed special friendships. Thank you Lord for my "lunch bunch." You always know what You are doing.
On my campus as well is another freshman student named Haleigh Bowers. Finally, our paths crossed. Haleigh's mother is my husband Ted's, 2nd cousin. Haleigh is very special and more than talented; she is a gifted singer and song writer who I know God is going to use in mighty ways. Please log on to her Demo CD sight and check out her music.
As I was leaving my lunch hideaway, I walked by this girl sitting with a friend strumming a guitar and singing with a voice like an angel. I had walked right past her, then I stopped, turned around and walked back to her thinking...This has got to be Ted's cousin...
"Hi, I just heard you singing...What is your name?" I boldly asked and with grace she said, "Haleigh" with her beautiful smile. Ungracefully I said..."we are related...I am Coleene...I mean... your mom and my husband are cousins...well, your grandma..." by then we were laughing for she had heard that I existed on campus somewhere from her mom who I chat with on Facebook.
Please listen to her Demo CD
