The Graduate!



Tonight this little boy became a man .
Tonight we came home from his High School Valedictory a happy family.
Tonight a new page is turned.
Tonight a new life begins.

Where did the time go?

Teachers who battled with these kids for 13 years, sat teary eyed,
along with their family friends parents and Moms, who each got a bright red rose from our children as a reward for 13 years hard labor of love.

A Passionate Red Rose lies beside his diploma his grad hat and pictures of his fellow Scorpions.
ready to be framed.

Tonight they are Muhhammad Ali who flies like a butterfly and stings like a bee.
Tonight the world is their oyster, their future that lies in their own hands.

What a good place this is to be.
Tonight.

Happy Saturday!

Now this is a poem!

What a gorgeous photograph. The eyes say it all. My congratulations are being sent from Waldorf, Maryland. Many prayers and well wishes for the next chapter of steps unknown into his future. How awesome is it not knowing and allowing God's grace to carry and sustain his path?

I am honored and touched beyond words to have met you through the world of blogging.

I thank you from my heart for taking the time to visit my little blogs. I try to post when the Holy Spirit puts something on my heart.

I don't visit my friends as much as I use to but as we grown into the women we're meant to be; our true friends know that we don't need to visit or talk constantly to be reassured that we'll always care for one another!

Love you and wishing you and your family a weekend of exhausted celebration!

FSB and Max!
