I can't believe how fast 2018 has gone, let alone the month of December. I've been trying to wrap my mind around it, but I just can't seem to get a grip on the thought. Where has time gone?
Dear November 2018,
When at times I feel like a failure, and I've failed quite a bit this month, I can't help but wish there was no wickedness in this world. I can't help but wish that there weren't evil desires, deception, lies...to cut to the chase: I wish man didn't have to battle between flesh and spirit.
Dear October 2018,
My heart stretches out to you. Not only because you were full of fun opportunities, but you were full of lovely people. I always feel like the best of memories are made in these next couple of months filled with holidays. I can definitely acknowledge that, yes, October, you were crammed with amazing memories for me to look back on.
I think sometimes things are easier to say in a letter. Being the cry-baby that I am, I can't see myself making it through this in person without tearing up. So, here goes...
Dear September 2018,
First of all, I cannot even begin to fathom that this month is just about over. Where has the time gone?! Soon we will be talking about Christmas...eek! Some stores even have their Christmas decorations displayed already. Like what? Give me a chance to breathe a minute Wally World.
Dear August 2018,
Boy, you have been a month of big changes. I'm a senior! Yippeeeee! :)
To the girl who is becoming a senior,
Katlyn, you've grown pretty fast. It's absolutely crazy how fast time flies. One minute, you're a tiny girl as shy as a little puppy, the next you're becoming a ballerina dancing on everything. Then, you get a little older, dreading the first day of Kindergarten because you want to be with your Mommy every waking minute. And then before you even blink, you're being homeschooled, discovering your true identity, making friends for a lifetime, and dedicating your life to the Lord. Then for some crazy idea you decide to blink again and you're heading into your senior year. You're slowly becoming a woman as cliché as that sounds.
Dear July 2018,
You're hard to describe. I feel like the only easy way to explain it is to compare it to one of those really good caramel chip frappes from Dairy Queen. I was so excited to get you in my hands, yes! finally! and once I sipped the last bit of the whipped cream, I silently cried because it's over with already.
Can I just stop the tape and rewind?
Dear June 2018,
You have literally been so fun. It's kind of hard to let go of a month that has been full of friendship and swimming and laughter.
Dear May 2018,
I literally think I blinked and you were gone. I cannot fathom how quick you were, but I think at the same time, you were pretty cool...maybe that's why you seemed to fly. You took disappointments and turned them into hopes. You gave me a clear vision and goals.
Dear April 2018,
I often sit back and wonder when it comes to writing these specific blogposts...what did I learn this month? I can't say it was one specific thing in April 2018. For lovely months such as this past April, it's hard to find words to fully describe it. But I think a good word would be... inspirational.
Dear March 2018,
You were full of contemplating, tears, and decisions. Still, through all the crazy things you threw at me, you were an amazing month. I wouldn't change a single thing.
Dear February 2018,
You seemed more like a struggle to me. I feel like I tried so hard and still failed. February, I'm glad you're over with if I'm going to be honest. I'm ready for a move on, and I'm ready to leave you in the past.
Dear January 2018,
You were a pretty good start. I managed to begin you with a challenged mindset, I didn't want to regret each day. I wanted to live each moment with the fullest potential it had. I wanted to do something...live and breathe a little more. For the most part, I think I did it. That's saying something.
