last weekend I stepped back on campus and celebrated the anniversary of receiving a diploma with my name on it. 20 years ... has it really been that long? my years at grove city college really were the best of times, and it was great to relive a little of that for a weekend. there were times that it seemed almost like yesterday and others where it was obviously 20 years later. it was a great weekend sharing memories and families with those I was closest to. here are a few of my favorite sights of campus and around town:
much of my time on campus was spent with my college family-my friends and sorority sisters who became my family. many years and many miles have separated most of us, but the memories of the moments upon moments I spent with these three friends came rushing back to me.
ten years ago when this same photo was taken, it was two young moms with three young children. now look at us, a little older moms with three young adults and two young men. amazing how time passes.
she is my most treasured blessing that I left college with. in girl scouts, we used to sing "make new friends, but keep the old, one is silver and the other's gold." as I grow older, I'm realizing popularity is not the name of the game. but having true friends who love you unconditionally, forgive you continually, and encourage you genuinely is the one true treasure of relationships. she is one true friend.
