We had our 30 yr class reunion this weekend. It was a blast! My husband and I graduated in the same class so it makes the reunion fun for both of us. We have some great friends who we have kept a relationship with over the years and they all stayed with us. It was a wonderful time. It is amazing how everyone at the reunion looked "old" (except for us of course :) yet for the most part we could still recognize each other. It was by far the best reunion yet. I think all the walls come down and everyone realizes we are all just people trying to make a difference in the world. It was interesting to me that even people who didn't really like each other in high school were greeting each other warmly. Maturity at it's best.
The last few weeks have given me cause for reflection and I have wondered many times about "how did I get here?" I don't feel that much older and certainly not like I have been out of high school 30 yrs. Yet I wouldn't trade the person I am now for the person I was then for anything. I am so much more secure in who I am and I love my life. I like the journey the Lord has taken me on over the years to create and shape me into the person He wants me to be. Even when the road has been difficult it is always for my good.
I guess I got a bit off track here. All this to say it was a great time, I am thankful for lifelong friends who know me well and love me anyway. It is truly a blessing.


  1. Awww...such cute photos! I also saw a cute one of you in that black dress on someone else's facebook (you were tagged...) You guys all look great! Love you Mom!

  2. You thought everyone looked older but you. Just wait until your 50th. We had ours this spring and I said "who are all these old people?"

  3. I would like to go to my 30th when it comes! I bet it is so much fun! I am told that your 30th is really the best because everyone is at a good point in their lives where they realize a lot of things and everyone is more real.

    I am glad that you had a great time!
