Once upon a time, there was a girl named Lisa who was 18 years old. Like most 18-year-olds, she made a lot of choices. Some were good, some were not. One really, really good choice she made was the choice to be a part of Regina, a social club at Harding University.
Regina has been a part of Harding for a LONG time. Much longer than I have been around. The women who were a part of Regina when I was in school were my church. Seriously. They prayed with me, played with me, consoled me during grief, held me accountable to standards higher than I had for myself. Some of us were young and broke and newlyweds together. It was a special time with special friends.
Saturday, we had a reunion with Regina and our awesome brother club, Chi Sigs. It was absolutely wonderful. Three years ago, I became a faculty sponsor for Regina and getting to know this incarnation of the group has been wonderful. Seeing NOW Regina with THEN Regina was a taste of Heaven.
