It is funny to me how things happen just when you need them to. A couple of weeks ago, I posted about my birthday coming up and some goals I had for my next year in life. I think that came from me realizing that I needed to make some changes in my life.
So, as many of you know, I am deeply involved in a leadership organization for high school sophomores. This year, I was in charge of the annual seminar. I had a volunteer staff and committee, but I had to make sure it all came together. I was responsible for 150 15 and 16 year olds for 4 days. In the month leading up to the seminar I was seriously questioning my sanity for agreeing to take on this position. I actually thought of not returning for the following year. Yet, the seminar came around and it went amazingly well! There were some hiccups, but it came together nicely. It was just what I needed, just when I needed it.
In addition, I have found some of the greatest friends in the world. I love all of my friends, but this group of people have helped me to learn so much about myself in the last week and a half. Two years ago, Glinda and I decided to be friends outside of the seminar. It was wildly successful and we tried to get Ritzy* to join us in our friendship last year, but it didn't work out. So at this year's seminar there was a group of us that just seemed to bond. We call ourselves the IC and we have big plans for our friendship throughout the year.
I really need these people at this time in my life. So, in addition to Glinda and Ritzy, plan to see more of Cross Country* (CC), Miss Arizona* (MA), Beckham*, Such-n-such*, and Cribs*.
