I am a Senior!! I can't believe it. I have been dreaming about becoming one since I was 12. Some girls dream about Mr. Right or their wedding, but I dreamed about being a senior.
I know its kind of odd, but I am the youngest in my family so I grew up with people growing up and moving on to the next part of their lives. I always knew what I wanted to do, but I was just so far from it! But the time is here now and I can't even believe it. I will be 18 in two months. It feels like last week I was going into Cedarbrook Academy (my homeschool academy) as a 7th grader. Now I am going to have to plan out what's going to happen next in my life. I already know I'm going to go to school to become a nurse. After that, my plan is to get married and have a family.
I am thankful that my life its turning around and going the right way. As a teen there have been lots of ups and downs. But I have grown up and matured; I now know that God as a plan for me. You may ask how do I know that? Well I have had lots of downs in the last 2 years, but in the summer before my senior year He has shown me the light to my darkness.
If my Papa (my Grandfather) was still alive he would say “I'm proud of you my angel!” My papa and I always talked about my growing up. He may not be at my graduation but he is my angel now. I wear his class ring, because he is here for my senior year; he is with me every step. He can still see his angel grow up even if he isn't alive anymore.
We all have lost someone in our lives; but they are always there with you, walking with you in the hard and even easy times. I'm so thankful and happy that my Papa is with me for my senior year! I'm so blessed.
