It felt good to be back at church this morning. I sat next to Jenna and Tenielle. We laughed a lot. Tenielle wrote me this letter wrapped in tape and tin foil. She put a bow on it. It was pretty funny.
As the band was playing I would look over at them. They are both so beautiful. I think the world of those two girls.
Marcus was there, as was Cheryl.
And well, I was there too. That was the oddest part.
I gave my mom her mother’s day card this morning. She liked it. I told her this morning that in three months I bet to go back home.
She laughed. “Home?” She said.
And I realized it wasn’t just school to me now, it was home.
Siler City and Sanford are as much a home to me as Banner Elk and Boone.
