Today has been the day that I have dreaded on so many levels. Today was my last day in Stuttgart. My last night in my bed. My last day with my best friend. My last day with Han. My last day with Mad. My last day with JanJan and Bia. The last day for a lot of things, but then I stopped and thought, “Cade. Stop. This is depressing. You are not dying. No one else is dying. It’s gonna be okay!” This is my last time with some things, but this is certainly not my last day ever. This is a happy time for me! This is an exciting time for me and many others. It’s not a time to be sad. Yes, the quantity of time spent with people is going to be shorter than normal, but that just means the quailty when we reunite will be better than ever. That is something that I will keep in mind always! God is sending me all the way to Fort Worth tomorrow for some reason that I have yet to figure out. I pray that all these goodbyes are worth it. I pray for safe travels. I pray for new friends (PLEASE). I pray for my friends already in school. I pray for my friends in a new place. I pray for my family. I pray for all families. I pray this is the time of my life. I pray your with me. I pray that the quantity is different, but the quality is better!!!
I am thankful for everything Stuttagrt has taught me, and I am thankful for everyone who supports me. It means the world and I would not be the man I am today with the love and support from my small town! I’ll be back sooner than later, but until then I hope you’ll keep up with me here and that you’ll always be thankful. This small town boy with big dreams is chasing them… Stay tuned!
Southern and Thankful
