A Blast From My Past!!






Ha! Ha! That is me on the right. I was 15 and in the Army Cadets if you can believe it. I was part of the 'elite' first aid team. I joined because there was a cute guy who was running it. Not the guy in the picture...I think the guy taking the picture.

Anyway, the cute guy who took the pic was a few years older than me. He was off to University to take Kinesiology (the study of the human body). This was the first I had ever heard of this degree and two years later I signed up to go to the same school he did in the same degree program.
I have to admit that his cuteness played a huge factor in my choosing this school and program. So funny but so sad at the same time. There were other reasons I chose this path but really....he was the reason I remembered the program for two years!!

Funny how God puts people in our paths that influence us to make certain decisions. Obviously I was meant to go to Western....and no I never ran into him :(

That's funny. I joined a Christian fellowship group in college because of a cute guy...unfortunately I also dated him! But hey, I became a believer and stayed with the group, so God had a plan!
