As my senior year comes to a close I start to feel emotions welling up inside of me. Could this be real? Really is it?
I never thought this day would come. Heck, there were nights I thought I would not live to see this day. I guess in a kid that was sick I thought that I would never graduate- or I would and I had big sights for my life however it still didn't seem possible. I have gotten letters and I have been seeing the events unfold before me. Pictures I saw on everyone else's facebook, are now going to be filling mine. Words like Project graduation, Senior Slide-shows, and Baccalaureate fill my vocabulary. I am graduating with honors... Which isn't really a big deal at our school it seems everyone is doing it. Yet- to me, it's a big deal I feel accomplished for teaching myself and still achieving it. I am excited as the next year starts...
However, as I look back on the year I look at a ton of things that have been so gracefully provided for me. Friendships that have flourished to their greatest glories and people who have become so close. I see these people in my life as answered prayer and I didn't see it until I looked back. I look up into the top of my closet- and I see cards tons and tons of cards! Cards that are filled with words from people who care. I am so grateful for the people in my life and this weekend as the walk comes, I am not going to lie a little bit of me is sad because I look at the walk as one of those moments of one of the last hurrahs as a Horseheads High School student.
Who knew- this too would be behind me. Being a teen a thing of the past? Luckily I have another year in it!
