I can't help but talk about graduation every day these days. All of our current and future plans revolve around that one day.
The day that my husband and I graduate from college.
The day we become grown ups.
Honestly, we have been pretty grown up for awhile now: bills, major life decisions, trials etc.
But I know that this is the mark of a new chapter, usually considered the transition to being a grown up out there in the big scary world.
Now, you and I know differently.
That no one can make you grow up.
No one can prevent you from staying up all night watching Psych. No one can prevent you from getting frozen yogurt every other day. No one can make you stop giggling or tickling or being ridiculous just because you are becoming a so called "grown up."
And I am glad of that. I am glad that although we are quickly approaching this new chapter, that Jason is still Jason and I am still me.
Sure, lots of new adventures, trials and discoveries are nearing on the horizon but I am still trying to enjoy the here and now.
I am still soaking up seeing the gorgeous mountains as I walk around campus. I will miss those.
I am still soaking up every possible girls' night because I will miss those ladies.
I am still soaking up:
my memories in the place that brought me:
the love of my life
a knowledge of who i am
desires for the future in the world & in the home
finally appreciating my parents and family
fears about all the things in the world I can't change
but hope for all the things that I can change.
I am ready for the next step.
But I am not ready to leave behind all that I have found here.
No moving, no graduation and no "being a grown up" can take all this away from me.
Thanks BYU for bringing me all this joy in my life. My time here will never be forgotten.
