Kelsey 2014

What a senior year Kelsey has had! God has blessed her with so many extra special moments.

PROM NIGHT - May 17th,  Kelsey and her boyfriend were crowned Prom Queen and King.
May 18th, they went to a reception for Kelsey & some other students who were receiving the JOY&HOPE Scholarship. This scholarship is given to students who have lost a parent or sibling and submitted an essay on how they help others now because of their loss. Kelsey applied for this in April with a beautifully written essay.
I was talking to my niece Kelsey the other night, telling her how proud I am (we all are) of all that she is and how she has turned adversity into lessons and love.
She said to me:

"I find it helps when I turn it all over to God and let him have all my worries and pains!  I leave the past behind and the future in the future...... It's so much better when I live in the moment ."

OMG - you can imagine how my heart leaped for joy!  I know her mom was in heaven doing twirls of joy.  Her little girl is making her so proud!

Then, May 30th she will graduate on her 18th Birthday!  We will all be there with LOVE!
