Forever Young

Six years ago I stepped onto the campus of Western Kentucky University. Little did I know that at little school in the small town of Bowling Green, Ky I would find deep, Godly, inspiring friendship with a group of extraordinary women.

Women who would come to my dorm in the middle of the night to help me study, women who would walk across the graduation stage with me four years later, women who would be bridesmaids in wedding, women who would come to the hospital when my son was born, women who would drive from other states to help me in my darkest hours. (I LOVE you Alex)

I saw some of these women this past weekend. Two years ago this was taken at my rehearsal dinner. Three of us are now married, two of us have babies, two are still in school, one engaged, and one climbing the corporate ladder. Despite the diverse seasons of our lives, time has not changed us...

May the good Lord be with you
Down every road that you roam

And may sunshine and happiness

Surround you when you're far from home

And may you grow to be proud, dignified and true

And do unto others as you'd have done to you

Be courageous and be brave

And in my heart you'll always stay
Forever young,

May good fortune be with you

May your guiding light be strong

Build a stairway to Heaven

With a prince or a vagabond

And may you never love in vain

And in my heart you will remain
Forever young,

And when you finally fly away

I'll be hoping that I served you well

For all the wisdom of a lifetime

No one can ever tell

But whatever road you choose

I'm right behind you, win or lose

Forever young.

Ladies, here's to the memories of the past and moments of the future. I love you all... May we always remain Forever Young.
