  1. When I was 23 I:

    Went to China
    Went to Guatemala
    Worked three jobs (I6, Partridge Den, Nanny)
    Moved to Madrid
    Got presbytery for the first time
    Finished T-Center
    Thought I was in love (I wasn’t =))
    Wrecked your parents car
    Experienced grace for the first real time
    Cried a lot
    Made amazing, amazing friends who are friends to this day

    It was a good year for me.
    I know it will be for you.

  2. I loved you dearly when you were 22.
    I will love you so dearly when you are 23.

    It is bittersweet. And you made me cry. I know the year to come will be wonderful for you!
