Oh May!

May has thus proven so far to be a CRAZY-BUSY-FANTASTIC month. And I'm assuming it will only get more crazy, more busy, and (hopefully) more fantastic (:

This past Saturday was prom. My date was my best guy friend and we doubled with my best girl friend and her best guy friend. It was fun and relaxing.

As I was dancing to the last song with David, tears welled up in my eyes. We had come so far. From playing on the playground when we were kids, to "dating" during our eighth grade year, to our first cars and first drives together (where I infamously ran the stop light), to where we are presently. We have gone through so many things together. I can't even explain the bond I have with him. And to think, it will all soon be over. I will be moving, he will be staying... and I know our friendship will have to change. It was a truly bittersweet moment of my life.

That last dance has made me realize it really is ending soon. I will soon leave the high school I've been attending for the past three years, for the last time. I will walk the halls with my friends for the last time. I will eat the cafeteria food for the last time. I will see so many of these people for the last time. And all that will begin to happen in a mere 23 days. How major is that?

And yet, despite all I'm leaving behind, God is showing me that He has so much more to offer to me as long as I keep following Him. I feel so BLESSED. Words can't describe. My past means so much to me, my present is amazing, and my future... my future is His :)

This post was intended to tell you what all I've been up to since I last blogged. But somehow... this is enough. One event and how it impacted me pretty much sums up the most major part of my life right now. I'm on a balance beam, treading water, you get the imagery... and yet... this is my life here and now. And I couldn't ask for more!

You and that dress look simply marvelous!
I so happy that you had a good time. I can't imagine what it must be like to have to leave all that behind. But as you said your future belongs to the King of Kings. I still have a year left of high school, but after much prayer I decided to stay home for collage. I'll be praying for you more fervently the next few weeks as you finish up school and get ready for what ever your future holds! By the way the first time I drove I stepped on both the gas and the brake, at the same time ;)

Yeah, for sure, that's gotta be bittersweet. I really hope you can still stay in touch with David. Where are you going anyways? You mentioned so many "lasts" and the whole new chapter thing made me think of also all the firsts you'll be having too.

You looked great at your prom and I'm glad you had a fun time! I'm gonna keep praying for you.

(the cool thing about blogging is that as long as both have the Internet we can stay in touch, even when you move).
