"When I Awoke That Day...

...I  felt the most excitement I had felt, ever."

On that morning, I remember the excitement and anticipation I felt, as I had a full day:
- church
- graduation
- my party
- hanging with friends, later
- finishing packing for 2-week trip to California the next day

I came downstairs to the dining room all ready for a party. In the middle of the table was my cake - purple and lavender (class colors), with a yellow silk rose (class flower). My Father had stayed up all night to get it done. I cried - it was beautiful, and I was grateful.

I recently crossed into my 42nd year of being a High School Graduate. Over the years, as I have accepted certain truths, that day has become a little "tarnished".

2022 was the first year, in a very LONG time, I was able to focus on the positive memories from that day. It felt amazing - so freeing.

Someone once told me, "The process is the process, and it sucks." They were NOT wrong; but with my commitment to my healing, and learning to ask for help, these last 30 years have "turned my tide". It has NOT always been easy, but I will persevere...

Thank you, have a good day, and be safe... #2022YOU ***beamererin.com*** #JusTSpInnIngPlaTes beamererin@yahoo.com
