I had no idea what lay ahead. My first year under the shade of the University of South Carolina was full of long lunches and late nights of light-hearted fun. Loneliness turned into life-long friends.


Fall came again.

This time I was 19.


No, not me.

But he was there. A heartbeat on a screen. My first boy. My first loss.


A girl, learning how to paint.

Learning how to teach.


There was marriage. And a precious daughter, Spring Break, 2002.


More classes.

More paint.

The football team actually won. .

Graduation. Baby boy in my belly. So many days ahead.


There’s a book I could write. So many details. So much heartache. But mostly joy. Great joy. And, gratitude. You knew, oh God. You knew the place, the people, the steps. Each day, a gift.


Campus tours... so much unknown. So many steps ahead. Lots of dark. More light. Sure and firm hope.
