Since today is Father's Day, I've been reflecting on just how important my Dad is to me and all the things he has taught me... like how to change a tire, how to treat other people with love and respect, how to value my family, how to be generous, how to love Jesus with my life, how to play poker, how to install a sprinkler system (I'm sure that will come in handy some day), how to ride my bike, and how to listen, to name a few. I am so blessed to have him. I love you, Dad.

Time goes by so fast it seems. Three months ago I was meeting all new people, now I'm having to say goodbye to some great friends. Change is one of the most painful parts of life, but at the same time, it's extremely vital. I'm learning to embrace the change and even the hurt of the change... I think the pain of having to say goodbye, or having to move on, is an indicator that life has taken place, and something good has existed that is worthy of feeling loss over... I want the experiences and relationships in my life to be worthy of the pain of loosing them if, or when, they go. And because time will continue on, that feeling of loss will pass as new, beautiful seasons come. One day it's a frozen tundra outside, then the next it's warm sunshine.
