Boy has this been a week for me! My nephew graduated from high school last night. It was wonderful and hard all at the same time. You see, it was the 8th anniversary of my mother’s passing. I know she was with us. I took her clutch! She loved all her children, grandchildren, and the great-grandchildren. Russ was the last grandchild so of course he was spoiled by her. We all felt her presence tho.
Now, for the good news…Finally, 12 years of ups and downs for my sister is over. This was her last baby to finish school. After two girls, this was so different for her with a boy. I have two boys so I understood some of the trials and tribulations! Russ is a fine young man and will do wonderful with his life. I am so very proud of him.
There were so many people there last night and the ceremony was long. It was very good tho. Nice speeches. Everyone behaved themselves!!!!
I have 5 more years before I will be attending another graduation…my first grandson! Then 8 years for the second and 12 for the last one. If I make it that long!!!!
I want to say congratulations to all of the young adults of 2010. Make sure you chose the “right” path in life. These next few years will be hard, whether you go one to college, the service, or straight to a career. Just keep on keeping on. Don’t let this be the end. There is so much more in life. Do your best and reach for the sky. You can do it, if you choose to.
I pray for all of you, each and everyday. It won’t be easy, nothing worth having is. Just don’t say “CAN’T”. Do it. Don’t quit.
Good luck to all,
