I Think I Forgot How

Guess who's back!  I think I forgot how to do this...

It's hard to believe that it has been almost a full year since my last entry.  Why was I gone so long?  I really don't have a good answer for that one.  While I was gone, however, I did hear from many of my faithful readers.  They spoke such encouraging words - they touched my heart deeply.  That being said, I'm going to give this another try, ok?  Ready to plug your nose, join hands, and jump into the deep end with me once again?  Great!  Here we go...

So, my last entry was written about my experience with "diversity" at Trinity Christian College.  It's so hard for me to realize that 42 years have passed since this scared, timid girl from Grand Rapids found her way to Palos Heights, Illinois.  And the saga continues.  This year I am honored to be the president of the Alumni Board.  Serving on the board has been such a blessing.  This past December, our daughter graduated from Trinity, and I was asked to speak! What a share the stage with Elise, to speak to the graduates about my journey since my graduation, and then getting to shake each of graduates hands as they walked across the stage!  It just doesn't get much better!

In a few weeks, I will return to Trinity to help with Homecoming events and to attend a board meeting.  But this time, I will stay on at the college for two weeks to help my daughter with the final plans for her wedding.  She is getting married on October 19.  This mama is looking forward to having her whole family together again. 

I'm going to see if I can load some pictures on here and share with you all some of the highlights of this past year.  Thanks for reading and for joining me on this journey!
