Have you ever felt awkward or unsophisticated in your life? I would imagine we all have at one point.
A couple of years ago, a wonderful friend of mine, made it possible for me to go to a place I rarely went; but enjoyed. It is the famous Wagon Wheel playhouse, here in Warsaw, Indiana.

It is a fantastic place to visit to see plays. A time to dress-up in your fancy clothes and enjoy the evening. Although I thoroughly enjoyed each play, I have to admit I felt awkward walking in those front doors. I am a gal who likes casual clothes, so putting on the fancy pants, made me feel out of place.
I used to feel unsophisticated in my high school days. Lord only knows why I felt  this way. I went to school in nice clothes. I came from good parents, had a nice home and had friends.
Yet, other kids, dressed nicer, seemingly more popular, always made me feel a little unsophisticated. Now when I look back, I can see that it was a silly feeling, but it was real.
Now that I am older, I still like casual and I don’t care nearly as much about being popular. I care more about comfort, less pain, a few close friends and my family. Isn’t it nice when we finally grow up?
