30. Reflection Post:  What did you think of this challenge? OR A Random Thought Post.

I think it was fun looking back into the past and remembering things from back when I was young, which, at this point, feels like a hundred years ago instead of 30 or so years ago.

Even though I am the one that came up with the majority of the questions, it was hard for me to come up with answers to some of them.  I didn’t have the same experiences as many “normal” teenagers had.  I didn’t have a job or a car or join lots of extra-curricular activities during my high school days.  It just wasn’t possible.  I couldn’t buy a car without a job and I couldn’t get to a job without a car and no one was available to take me to work if I had gotten one.  It was a frustrating circle.

In spite of my experience not being the typical high school experience, there are still moments that I can look back on and remember with a smile, like the day I walked outside and looked across and saw a gorgeous pair of blue eyes looking across at me.  That day was the first day of the rest of my life and now I can look at those blue eyes any time that I want to, even if I have to pry them open to do so.

Thank you to all of you that have participated in this challenge, either by writing posts or commenting on them. I have enjoyed reading your posts and getting to know all of you better.    Have a blessed day!
