I'm at the NW MN Synod Sr. Hi Youth Gathering at Castaway Club on Pelican Lake and it's beautiful. I haven't taken a picture yet but I will and I'll share it with you.
Since I'm here working I don't have a lot of time to share my day to day stuff with you but I do have time to share my favorite sign from Jimmy John's with you (I love JJ and it's probably a good thing that I have to drive an hour to eat there otherwise I'd be there ALL.THE.TIME!)
I believe that we don't have to change friends if we understand that friends change. I believe that no matter how good a friend is, they are going to hurt you once and a while and you have to forgive them for that. I believe that true friendship continues to grow over distance, so does true love. I believe that you can do something in an instant that will give you heartache forever. I believe that it's taken be a long time to become the person I want to be. I believe that you should always leave loved onces with loving words, it may be the last time you see them. I believe that you can keep going long after you can't. I believe that we are responsible for our actions no matter how we feel. I believe that you either control you attitude or it controls you. I believe that regardless of how hot and steamy a relationship is at first, the passion fades and there had better be something there to take it's place. I believe that hero's are the people who do what has to be done regardless of the consequences. I believe that money is a lousy way of keeping score. I believe that my best friend and I can do anything or nothing and still have the best time. I believe that sometimes the people who you expect to kick you when you're down will be the ones to help you back up. I believe that sometimes when I'm angry I have the right to be, but that doesn't give me the right to be cruel. I believe that just because someone doesn't love you the way you want them to doesn't meant they don't love you with all that they have. I believe that maturity has more to do with experiences you've had and what you've learned then it does to do with the numbers of birthday's you've celebrated. I believe that it isn't always enough to be forgiven by others, sometimes you have to forgive yourself. I believe that no matter how bad your heart is borkend, the world doesn't stop for your grief. I believ ethat our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are, but we are responsible for who we become. I believe that just because two people argue doesn't mean they don't love each other and just because they argue doesn't mean they don't. I believe that you shouldn't be so eager to find out a secret, it could change your life forever. I believe that two people can look at the exact same thing and see something totally different. I believe that your life can be changed in a matter of hours by someone that you don't even know. I believe that even when you think you have no more to give, when a friend cries out to you for help, you will find the strength to help. I believe that credentials on the wall do not make you a decent human being. I believe that the people you care about most in life are the ones taken from you too soon.
My future Mr. waited (im)patiently for me to write all of that down on the note pad in my phone. I love him.
