My girlfriend posted this picture on her facebook of me almost 20 years ago...If you cannot tell I am the one on the right. Look at that hair. I have to say that took alot of aqua net to keep it that high!!! Looking at these I kind of miss high school. It was so fun. It really feels like yesterday. It is hard for me to believe that in 2009 it will be 20 years. Where has the time gone? At our senior prom our theme song was. Never Say Good Bye, by Bon Jovi... I remember the feelings I felt when they played that song. I thought that I would never lose touch with my friends. That we were all going to stay close. That we would all be what we set out to do....Well, Twenty years later, a college attended, a mission served, a wonderful husband, four beautiful children, many moves, alot of stress, some heart ache, a whole lot of laughter I have to say we are healthy, happy and looking forward to many more fun and exciting challenges that are ahead. It has not been easy, but ohhhh has it been so worth it. I have grown so much, not only in size...ha ha, but from the little girl pictured there. I have grown to be more open to things, and to accept things that I cannot change. I now look at things from a mothers prospective. (Mom, I am sorry for being a major pill at times.) Trust me I am getting my pay backs that you warned me about.. I have become a wife that has discovered that she is not perfect and accepted that her husband isn't either. I have developed friendships not only with my husband and children, but with others that I would never give up.. I may not be exactly what I dreamt I was going to be as a young girl, but now that it has been twenty years my dreams have changed and the things I have in my life are so much more than I could have ever imagined.
Looking back I would not change a thing.....This was my dream...
