This year, I've been a little heartsick.  Little Lauren (left), is no longer little, and Emily (right) is leaving us for North Greenville University in a few short months.  It's been easy to get hung up on all of "the lasts".  Last marching band competition, last winterguard competition, last year in middle school...etc.  The Lord has been dealing with me about looking forward to the exciting possibilities of "the nexts"!  The next adventure, the next chapter, the next opportunity.  I cherish the memories of the past, but I can't wait to see how God is going to work in the lives of my girls.  I hope to be sharing a lot of "nexts" with you all as time marches on!!!
