40 years ago!!


This is ME....40 years ago!! My senior picture for the year book! Notice how that hair style is back in fashion!! LOL....
I am off to my class reunion of 40 years this Saturday! I had a conversation this morning about the discomfort/comfort of those years...connections and disconnections over the years....Life has a way of going on doesn't it! What we thought was once so important sometimes loses meaning...and the things that we thought we would NEVER do somehow have been done....
40 years! I still see glimpses of that insecure very shy girl....I still feel the passion that she once had/still has....I still hold her in my heart and sooth her when she needs to be...and I still walk in her shoes....she has grown and made a life....one to be proud of even in the face of diversity...

Have fun!

Memory Lane can be fun to travel. To me, however, the best part of such a trip is the coming home.
Seeing how far I've come and feeling safe and content in the world I've created for the skinny, shy, needy girl of yesteryear.

Pattie,
I've been reading and keeping you in my heart and prayers even when I've not had a moment to leave you a note to let you know I'm still here. Love you!!

I graduated in "69" and my classmates are trying to get a reunion going sometime in October. I don't have great memories of high school but still I think it would be kind of cool to go to this reunion. I hope you have a blast at yours!!
