This afternoon our oldest Grandchild...Driana...received her high school diploma. She sat with her class...it's a small rural school. The senior class that's comprised of only 68 students, did their parents and teachers proud.
Many graduated with honors. 5 are going off to serve our country. One student already has an associates degree he earned from a junior college while he was still in high school. Smart boy! Our Driana had all A's the last 2yrs and she's deciding which college to attend to become a Psychologist. She also has her license as a beautician so she can work while going to school..smart girl!
As I watched her receive her diploma I kept picturing her life speeding by since birth...almost like a notepad with pictures that you flip quickly through and see them move...I remember how small she was when she was born..(she's still tiny!) How funny and head strong and smart. Her school days...her basketball games...her love of playing her guitar...her solo she sang at a school program in middle school. Her homecoming dances, proms..and now going off into this crazy world. One that will be better because of her.
So toss your caps!
Thank your parents! Hug your Dad!
Hold that diploma until you trade it for a college degree.
And never lose that smile and enthusiasm for life. It's all ahead of you. Good luck honey!
