I just want to say that I can’t imagine my life any different than it is right now. I moved to Texas with my family 8 years ago today. now don’t get me wrong, I LOVE LOVE LOVE Massachusetts and all of New England so much and it’s my favorite place on this earth, but I know that moving to Texas was so good for me. I had a horrible time when I first moved here and I didn’t have any friends (a real group of steady, supportive friends) until a year and a half ago. and that sucked, that’s a very long time to be lonely. And I hate the weather here. And the cowboy boots and stupid huge trucks that people drive. and the country music (gag me.) BUT the opportunities I’ve gotten and the amazing things I’ve learned since moving here, I wouldn’t trade for the world. I’ve been through some horrible things since moving here, financial things that my parents have been through, losing my grandmother after 16 years of living with us and just being completely lonely and miserable. but I can’t help but think, this is exactly where God wanted me and my family to be all of this time. after everything, all I can do is thank God for bringing us here. because I wouldn’t be the person I am today if he hadn’t. I’m graduating in three days, with some of the best people in the world, and I’m closer right now to my sisters than I’ve ever been. and I’m scared and I don’t know what’s going to happen after high school, but I’m so overwhelmingly excited for everything. even the scary things. I’m so ready for the next chapter in my life.
and that’s it. I just really wanted to say all of those things. I get really wordy late at night. <3 I love you all. so much.
