My 10 year high school is tonight. That will make you feel old! Sometimes it seems like high school was yesterday and other times it seems like it was so long ago.
I had a good time during high school. I know many people who say that they would never do high school again, but I didn't have a bad high school experience. I always had fun during high school and I was never involved in too much drama. I was on the dance team and many of the kids from school were in my youth group. I had a good number of close friends and pretty much hung out with everyone. So if I had to do over again, I wouldn't do anything differently.
When I first got the email about the reunion, I kind of freaked out thinking about all the things I needed to do. Mainly, lose weight. I think that is probably every girl's first thought, but then I got over it. I guess I just don't really care about that stuff so much any more.
To be honest, I am really happy with where I am these days. I could stand to lose a few pounds and I could definitely be more patient with people, but I feel like I am right where God wants me to be.
I have talked before about success and money, and how it just doesn't have a hold on me like in the past. I may not make hundreds of thousands of dollars and I may not have the biggest house or the nicest car, but I am a good wife and a good mother. I could hang out with my family all the time and be happy. I have great friends who love me and have my best interest in mind. I like what I do for a living. It allows me some extra perks in life and I have a flexible schedule. I have a roof over my head and food in my pantry.
I guess I say all that to say this, I am content. Did I think this is where I would be at 27 years old? I have no clue. I always remember thinking that I just wanted to be proud of myself and I wanted my family to be proud of me, and I think I accomplished that. I had a great time at college and graduated on time. I married my best friend and we have the greatest son in the world. My mom, dad, and brother are part of my everyday life. I work hard. My friends are some of the most wonderful people. All those things make me feel successful. I had dreams 10 years ago and a lot of those dreams came true. I can't wait to see what the next 10 years hold for me and my family!
I am a mom, wife, sister, daughter, friend, and all things in between. I am married to Clay and love every minute I spend with him. We welcomed our first child, Will, on March 4, 2009, and I don't remember what life was like before him. Life is great and I hope to share some of our moments with you.
