As I’m on a bus to state student council conference in Arlington, I reflect on what this trip means.
It’s not an unusual trip. This will be the 14th year I’ve taken this one. I drove it a few times in our younger student council years when fewer students were eligible to come. As a bus rider, we have had a flat tire, been stuck in traffic and had a not so friendly fellow driver flip us his “number one” sign. It’s always an adventure!
One year I came earlier than the bus with a couple of students to serve on a committee. We have come as a candidate school, an officer school and like this year, delegates.
I’m honored by the fact that God Puts me in the position I am to do things like this trip with some awesome students.
This year is quite a special year. I’m traveling with my nephew Payton on his last state stu. co. trip. He will be ending his high school career in just a few short weeks and going on to begin carving out his future as an adult. I’m also proud to have my daughter Morgan on her first trip as she has just begun her high school stint. Besides these two “blood” relations (and one of which I birthed), I GET to keep company with 19 other babies that aren’t my birth children, but I love them as such.
As I sit here on this swayoh, weebly wobbly, bumpity …bump …bonk …yellow dog ride…
I feel so blessed to be able to do the things God allows me to do. He gives me a bus driver that we trust and I’m so glad I don’t have to drive like in years passed. It’s amazing to me that He entrusts me with this bus full of babies. (I know they aren’t really babies, but I like to call them that because they are all that precious!)
I am Totally Blessed!!!
“Are we there yet!???”
