Destination: Fort Mill, SC
The destination of this trip was to the town I lived in for almost 10 years. It’s where I lived from when I was in 5th grade to before I entered my sophomore year of college. The reason for our weekend trip to Fort Mill, SC was for a graduation party of a friend I had since high school. We started being friends when she was still in middle school, and her family has become very close to my family. This family was one of the families that we would sometimes celebrate holidays with.
Going to my hometown was a destination very familiar to me. I have made a few trips there since I have moved away. If I am not careful it could become almost a routine to go to this place. Though I am still going to be conscious of where I saw God each time I go there.
For this vacation, I saw God in the people I connected with while I was there. It gave me a glimpse of memory lane for me. For a moment, it would take me back to when I lived in this town. I absolutely loved seeing my old friends. It was one of those trips where I saw a lot of the people I would have wanted to see while I am in town. There were people I wanted to see that I did not have the opportunity to see, but for the most part I saw a lot of the people I cared about. I was also able to see how God has worked in these people’s lives. I could remember meeting many of these people a while ago. One of my friends that I reconnected with was someone I have been friends with since I was in 6th grade, and many of the people I saw I met while I was in high school.
Going on this trip gave me hope for the future as well. It was cool to see how time has gone on in the lives of these people, but it’s also great to see how far I have come since this time. Some of these places brought back memories that were not the best, but I was able to look at these places and surprisingly be happy. I was happy to see I am not the girl that I was during the times at these places. I would say I am a better version of myself than I was when I lived there.
