But really, time flies.

It's true. Time flies. I am not sure where it went. Here is when I begin to sound like a mom but these are my babies:


I started working with this group of girls (give or take a few) in June of 2004. They were in 7th grade. They are now in 12th grade; deciding on college locations and embarking on a whole new journey. They really mean so much to me. I've learned so much about investing in others, patience, growth, struggles, grace and love. They have challenged me in ways I never expected. Sorry for the ramble, I am just feeling sentimental of this significant time of my life with them.

Tomorrow we are having a progressive dinner. We did this their freshman year as well. I have such vivid memories of that night and so many in between.

I am blessed to be able to hold a significant place in their lives in such a valuable time in their lives. Blessed to be a blessing, or so I hope.

"Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will in all things grow up into him who is the Head, that is, Christ." Ephesians 4:15
