Well, as I sit here typing this, I am getting emotional as it has been an emotional year. Not only is it the last year of highschool for me and many of my friends, but this following week has been completed with my sister and her fiancées engagement party as well as bridal shopping the following day. So on a scale of stability, I’m pretty close to crying about everything and anything (don’t bring any cute animals near me!) Everyone is soon entering new chapters of their lives and it is a good thing. So often, especially in highschool, people are either a.) clinging to the past and not wanting to leave, or b.) so ready to leave and resent highschool. I have been guilty of both. But, with the realization that me and my friends have a small amount of time together before we all move on to different places, majors, dorms, jobs, friends, lives etc…has made me stop and rethink things. It’ll be so different, and different is both exciting and scary. I’m learning more and more, through things as little as laughing with long time friends to as big as watching my sister find her dream wedding gown, to enjoy the here and now. I just talked to someone last night at the engagement party about how we need to trust God to put us where we are meant to be, because he is so good and wants only the best for us. So that’s my speech, here’s some pictures now, haha!
