Fast forward to Tuesday, yes, four days after I filled out a form wanting to be part of this team. At 8:17 pm, I open an email entitled “For the Love Launch Team” and start reading...at this point I am not sure if I am reading the email correctly.
...You are on my LAUNCH team for “For The Love"...Congratulations...Here we go, team…
I am not sure if I should scream, cry, or jump up and down...so I have Brandon read the email to see if it is true! FOR THE LOVE: I WAS CHOSEN!! So there it is, I am one of the 500 selected people who have the privilege to be part this experience. (Side note: 5,000 people applied, only 10% were selected)
Humbled. Excited. Honored. Thankful. Blessed. God’s hand is all over this opportunity. I cannot wait to learn and grow deeper in my faith. To become a little wiser. I can hardly wait to start reading (yes, I am motivating myself to finish my graduate project before I start reading)! For now, this is all I can share about this experience...I wanted to document my sheer enthusiasm before it all begins. This I know, maybe a little bravery, maybe a little spontaneity, maybe being uncharacteristically Shelly, is good for me!
