From tag in the churchyard
To lemonade stands with friends.
I am from singing with mama and throwing balls with daddy
Playing makeup and dress up with cousins and friends
From strolling my sister to driving her around
From hammock swings with Bruce Hall to baking cheesecakes with Nana
From shopping with Grandma to playing in Granddaddy's boat.
I am from enthusiasm, determination-
My glass is half-full
From Romans to Proverbs
Always trying to be good
From youth camps filled with late-night food runs
To messy games at D-Now.
I am from an arena filled with ice
A gym full of fun
A softball diamond when I was young
From trails to run on all around the countryside
And waves that crash over my head in the ocean's tide.
I am from a thirst for knowledge that never ceases
From a love of books and quotes from beginning to end.
I am from beach trips with friends to lay in the sun
From daytrips to Charleston
, "oh, what fun!"
I'm from shopping and laughing and dining out, too
From family and friends that I love and love me in return.
I am a dreamer still chasing a dream
A girl with a passion that never ends.
A heart that cares deeper each and every day
A vision for the future as He leads the way!
