it's been awhile ..

as i look back on 2008 and evaluate the year ..
i realize so many big changes i have made.
i have learned to except who i am,
and discovered being the "cool" girl really isn't all that important,
it's staying true to yourself.
i made a public display of my faith on June 1st
at birds hill, and got baptized.
i came to realize how amazing the gift of family is,
while staying in Smithers with my Auntie + Uncle, and cousins.
i learned that being single is alright,
and that certain things can happen at the drop of a hat,
that'll be something you'll have to live with forever.
sure i have my regrets,
but I'm so proud that i can sit here today
and think I'm pure .
because all the wrong in my life God takes away, and makes me pure again.
and ..
this year has already had its ups and its downs
but i look forward to what it holds.
the adventures I'll go on, the lessons I'll learn.
This year is the big one ..
I'll be 16 .
and i hope that I'll never leave the light of god.
that he'll be my source of comfort, my guide, my best friend.

You are so grown up! You write about things I struggled with as a teen and only accepted or moved past as an adult. I am so thankful for you and how you are allowing God to lead you! Love you my sunshine girl!
