thank you to all my friends and family who came to support me, especially my aunt for flying in all the way from australia!
personally, I’ve never really been strong in my faith, and I admittedly think that despite being confirmed, I am not at the peak of this spiritual journey. being confirmed then and there was merely happenstance, a part of my parish’s scheduled plans. along the way during these 10 years, however, I’ve met so many people who will be a part of my history forever and I’ve seen and come to understand the world from a nuanced perspective. that is what faith, no matter which, teaches you. perhaps this is simply the beginning, then?
