This is it, folks. The day is done. And I am finished with one small part of my life.
Okay, actually it's not all over yet.
Today was my last regular tournament for Bible Bowl...ever. But I still have summer tournaments, Nationals and the like, so it's not actually done. But still, the season tournaments are over. We had our Senior blessings today and it just feels so final.
Strangely though, I'm not unhappy. In fact...I'm almost excited. Okay, excited is not really a good word to describe what I feel. But I'm...happy and pleased and content and looking forward to what comes next. I'm not at all melancholy or wishing to turn back the clock and do it over again. I'm just happy. I feel like...like Peter Pevensie. "It's alright. It's not what I thought it'd be, but it's alright."
I did have a ton of fun today...it was just a joy to be alive. The sun was shining, and it was so warm and wonderful outside! :) And I was with so many of my friends doing one of the things that I love best in the world. It was perfect. And now that's it's over, it still feels perfect.
I won't cry because it's over. I'm going to smile because it happened. :)
I honestly have not shed a single tear and I don't think I will. The next chapter of my story is going to be just as amazing, if not more so. :) I cannot wait to see how it will unfold, where God will take me. :) This is my new beginning and I am eager to start. :)
