Today was our last meeting of this year.  We won’t meet again until October.  I have enjoyed my first year on the board as the scholarship chair and we were able to award 8 $1,000 scholarships to young women graduating from high school and entering college.  These young women excelled in either music, writing or art.

I was honored to be selected to read a piece that I had written on an artist’s rendition of a woman looking at her journal.  I wanted to share what I wrote:

Reflection

I see myself through my words

My remarkable life penned out before me

A journey through time and place forever documented

Page by page my wisdom grows

Who is this young woman in these journals?

I turn each page and see the beauty of the flow of my life…

Reminisce…a walk down memory lane

Once a young woman in love and full of wonder

Now just memories of days gone by.

Reflect… on all the wonder of my unique life

Old memories come flooding back as I relive the pages

Of days gone by.

Alone with my words, my truth, my essence.

My beauty is captured forever in my journal.

I gently smile as I close my journal, a life lived like no other.

My life, my journey, myself.
