It's that time..... 10 year high school reunion is this year. The notices have started going around Facebook.
I look back over the past 10 years and think about where I'm at today and it's nothing like I pictured in my mind.
As wonderful as it would be to see everyone from the class of 2002, at the same time it makes me cringe.
I feel like I have nothing to show for the past 10 years.
Established career. Nope.
House with a mortgage. Nope (Although who really wants a mortgage, lol. But the house, yes!)
I feel like people with all the above have found who they are, whereas I still feel like God's taking me down the path of still discovering who Lauren is. I'm just a soon-to-be 28 year old seeking God's Will and knows in her heart God's plan is perfect.
The husband will be worth the wait.
I love kids and know in my heart that time will come.
I'm in school to better myself and get in that career and in the meantime with a job that has supported me 100%.
The house, it will come.
I'm blessed beyond measure with family and friends who bring me so much joy and I'm honored to do life with.
The past 10 years hasn't been without the hard times. But I hope I can look back and see God's hand in it all, the good and the bad and that I've grown in him and my heart pursues and seeks after him daily ....
And the rest, it will fall into place.
Any of you seen the movie Romy and Michelle's high school reunion??? Maybe I can just say I invented the post-it notes?!?!?!?!? :)
