In the craziness of life it's important to step back and enjoy the precious present. Today, my family drove to Chattanooga for a weekend getaway. We are celebrating several important milestones in the Compton household. Jessica graduated with honors from the University of Mobile, Shannon is entering her Senior Year in High School and Emmanuel has been home for a year this month. God has been so faithful to our family.
As we drove down Hixson Pike, my mind was full of so many great memories. I have had the most amazing childhood. One set of Grandparents lived in very small town while the others lived on a 300 acre farm. As a boy, i had the opportunity to live in great suburban areas while experiencing the lifestyles of rural and small towns areas. Each has help mold me in unique ways.
Most importantly, I have had the joy of being unconditionally loved my parents and sister. I don't have enough space to express my appreciation. I just pray that I am half of a parent, as mine were to me.
