The things that are of value never come easily. They come through hard work. You can never run out of creativity. Graduation is an ending and also the beginning of a phase in one’s life.

You must be so proud of him! It reminds me of how I felt and still feel about my year old who has grown into an amazing young man. I recall his graduation from middle school, high school and next year, college. This was so beautiful, Gretchen! There is nothing like a mother- son bond.

But I really just want to say thank you mom and dad. I was too independent. I fought with you at all turns, but I want to thank you for everything you have done.

I know I was a very hard-headed child.
