There are so many thoughts in my head. I feel overwhelmed and lost by the decisions I need to make so this unknown corner of the internet seems like cheap therapy.
In 9 hours I am going to do something I never imagined I would do. I am taking half of our youth group to the National Catholic Youth Conference. I am incredibly excited and feeling very nostalgic. 16 years ago I was 16 and going to the very same conference. I wanted to be a youth minister. I can’t believe I things have come around full circle.
I can’t believe where I am at now. A few short years ago I had little faith life at all and seriously thought I was too intelligent to be blinded by faith. Oh how things have changed!!!!! I am so looking forward to this weekend and so excited for our kids to experience it. 3 years ago spending the weekend with 25,000 people would have sent me into a panic attack.
I still wish I could talk to my youth minister. She left this world way too soon, when I was in college. I’d love the chance to pick her brain every now and then with this whole youth ministry thing.
