A 10 year reunion

Mitch's 10 year high school reunion was this past weekend and it was a very country, very fun, bonfire reunion.

Here's the gang above. My husband is the on the front row beside the guy in the "T" shirt. Mitch graduated with a very small class of about 140, and spouses and all, only about 50 people came out. Growing up in small town, everyone has pretty much stayed connected, and it was great to see everyone getting along.

Here's the bonfire, it was huge!

This is my husband with his lifetime best friend Travis.

and here we are with his cousin Brad and his wife Lucy.

While there we all talked about our lives and where we are now in life, do we have a family yet, or are we just now meeting that special someone, the career path we took and did we go to college or join the military? In 10 years a lot of people have changed since high school, and the choices and decisions we have made since then have greatly impacted our lives now. Some may think that bigger, better, richer makes a better life, but often the happiest people in the world or just at the reunion don't have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything.  It can be so easy to become envious of other people's "stuff", to live for the "stuff" but in doing so, we only take away from the quality of LIFE. I pray and hope that you are making the most out of your life and living richly in love with those around you and not spending your time being envious of those with more "stuff". Enjoy LIFE, live simply, speak kindly, care deeply, and love generously.

I hope that you are blessed by this video below as I was
