Another year has come and gone.
Looking back, 2015 was a year of waiting. First, I was waiting to graduate. Then, I was waiting for whatever came next. There were days when I would have given anything for time to move faster. There were periods of loneliness and periods of frustration.
In other ways, though, it was a wonderful year. I was able to spend nine months living at home, which, in a way, has been like a return to childhood. I’ve loved spending time with my family. I loved working at our strawberry patch and apple orchard.
I’ve learned a lot this year. I finished my degree. I spent my summer pulling weeds followed by a fall hauling around apples. I experienced my first professional job. I attended the Urbana missions conference.
I’m not sad to see 2015 go. It’s been good, but better years lie ahead.
