About a month and a half ago I graduated from church (which is just a day in May each year that we call Senior Sunday where each senior walks down the isle, meets their parents that are waiting for them, and stands in front of the church.

It’s not a huge deal, but for me…I’ve grown up in this church. I’ve gone there since I was born, before I was born if you want to get technical. So to walk down the isle as a bit of a ‘goodbye’ to the church (for now, at least) was just weird, sad, and exciting all in one.
