I truly believe that in order to appreciate where you are going you have to understand where you have been, and thanks to a last minute trip to see an old friend I was able to go back to my beginning.  Things were of course changed, thanks not only to time but two hurricanes, but the memories were the same.  I saw the hospital where I was born, the home I was living in when my family broke apart, the corner I was on when I realized Santa didn't really exist.  I remember growing and fighting with my brothers and my sister painting my nails on hot summer days.  I remember my mom taking me shopping and my dad building my mom kitchen cabinets.  So many memories that shaped who I was and who I am still becoming.

I have grown in both years and experiences since leaving that little South East Texas town and I now realize that though I might miss the "simpler times" I don't think I could ever go back.  I guess once you have truly outgrown someplace its hard to ever be truly comfortable there again, but it was oh so nice to take that short trip back in time, especially with such a great tour guide.   

So now here I am getting ready to step out of my comfort zone and take a huge leap of faith.  The beginning years of my life, filled with moving from place to place, have given me the urge to keep going so I can discover new things.  Though there is still that little girl in me wanting to cling to the stability of the familiar, there is a growing part of me that is ready to step on that plane and see what adventures await me on the other side of the world. 

And though we might leave towns and houses behind us we never lose the people who have touched our hearts and changed our lives.  My family and friends are continually changing my outlook on life and helping me become the person I want, and need, to be to fulfill my purpose here.  Thank's so much to all of you for your love and support in the years past and still today.   Without your influence I wouldn't be brave enough to take this leap into the unknown, so thank you for being there then and now!!!
