Class Night 2009
This is a pic of Jordan and his twin cousins Adam and Allie. First of all aren't they gorgeous!!! (the twins, not Jordan!) LOL! Secondly I am so proud of them. They are just about as good as family can get. They are great to my kids, fun to be around and both have plans for their lives after high school! It is hard to believe that on Friday night they will be graduating from high school! When Jordan and I first started to date they were just ten years old.....I know I say it too much, but gosh time flies! Seeing them in the midst of all their graduation festivities makes me realize how quickly things pass. I feel like I was just in their shoes the other day. I had all the answers (not really) and thought I had life all planned out! Did I know that I would be living in Ky with my great husband and three kids all under three!!!! No way!!! Would I have changed anything about decisions I made at that time in my life....looking back yes. But I realize that if I had made one little shift in my plan at the time, or made one different decision, my life would be totally different. I look back now and see the Lord at work. He has been with me every step of my journey, even when times were dark and I had lost all those answers that I once thought I had. I hope that Adam and Allie realize that in their futures the path won't always be well lit. That sometimes you have to pause and search out what God wants you to do. The answers won't always be just laid out before you. But I also want them to remember to enjoy the journey as it unfolds. For good or for bad, that is what will build character! If I could tell them just a few short things it would be.....keep your family first, carry Jesus in your heart, and take lots of pictures! These days are fast fleeting and before they know it they will be able to look back on their individual paths and see the good and bad decisions that got them to adulthood. I just hope for them the next 12 years of their life after high school go by more slowly than mine did! It truly is just a blink of the eye!
