90 seconds (an LTMS tribute)

A middle school reunion in the middle of Kroger
You took me back in 90 seconds
90 seconds to share life
And the journey since
We were all a funny mess
Still are
The golden days of middle school, filled with laughter and insecurity
We grew up together, didn’t we?
How were we expected to know ourselves when constant change defined our season
Physically, mentally, relationally
In 90 seconds we pieced together a decade of life
Us: a mom, a missionary, a wild card, a helper
Those are just the ones we can remember in this moment
Until we meet again, pal
