This was probably the best birthday gift I received this year...my friend Jackie sent a few 'selfies' from our time together at Red Deer College in the mid-eighties and they make me so happy. Jackie, Karouna & I were almost inseparable in college and though we were all so different it was the time of my life. I learned to be happy just being who I was and doing what I loved. I think of my daughter who is now the age that I was in these photos, attending post-secondary school, figuring out without a doubt who she is and what she is meant to do and I'm so proud of her. I'm glad she has more confidence than I did and the commitment to stick with it in spite of challenges. I still had so much to learn, and still do, but it was the first step to being who I am today. A huge step for me that I know was the impetus to growth and especially to trusting myself. Good memories.
