a decade passed...

It's hard to believe that 2010 is here. And to think back on the past decade of my life is even harder...but the truth is that the past decade has been huge. As if the past year wasn't big enough (see previous post), I wanted to spend some time looking back at the things I've done, places I've seen, and blessings the Lord has brought to me over the past 10 years: here goes nothin!
In the past decade I have gone from being 12-22 (almost 23!!).
I finished middle school, graduated from high school, was accepted to ECU, and then ECU's College of Nursing and graduated successfully in 2008.
I was involved in Young Life, and then went on to become a YL leader in college.
I went on mission trips to St Louis, Nashville, Philadelphia, Guadalajara Mexico, and the Dominica Republic (YL Camp).
I traveled to the Bahamas, London, Paris, St Lucia, Jamaica, Haiti, and other islands in the Caribbean.
I lost a great friend way too early.
I played softball for half the decade on a traveling team.
I went on a cruise.
I worked in an orphanage and church in Mexico.
I moved away from home, to a new home- Greenville NC.
I had my first real boyfriend.
I moved to Pigeon Forge, TN for a summer with a bunch of YL leaders.
I worked at Dollywood.
I was a lifeguard.
I made some of the best friends ever.
I passed my boards and became a RN.
I got my first 'adult' job- an oncology nurse at Baptist Hospital.
I moved to Winston Salem.
But the biggest part of my decade was meeting, and then marrying my best friend.

Its been incredible- its been blessed. And I am so very thankful for all of the experiences I was given over the past decade...so here's to the next!
