Another year has gone by...

I am a year older today. It's exciting and I am inching my way toward another decade, but still a few years away. One student approached me today and said, "Don't worry Miss Price, you are only as old as you feel!" I laughed a little. I wanted to say: "I AM YOUNG, not just feel young!"

There are so many things to look forward to these days. As I reflect upon the last 2o and a few=) years, I realize that I have changed as a person in so many ways. I remember this one moment in my sophomore year of high school, a good ten years ago, when I was sitting in Mr. Perry's english class, his door was open, it was a beautiful day, sunny, soft breeze. I remember exactly what I was thinking. "I wonder where I will be in 5 years, in 10 years." If someone would have been able to look into the future and told me where I would be, I wouldn't have believed it. I have had to opportunity to travel 4 of the 7 continents, get my Bachelor's degree, become a dental assistant, and a high school history teacher. Sometimes I get into a rut and begin to think I am leading a pretty boring life, and then I actually look at my life and realize I am just being ignorant. I praise the Lord for the things I have gotten to do and people I have gotten to know. Its a wonderful life. Its a Happy Birthday indeed.
