Please Stay Forever Young

My girl graduated last night!She was lovely in her white gown and chucks.
Proud grandma and eager grad.
Sharing laughs with her cousin Jake.
Nervous glances into the crowd.
Awards and commendations.
When it is over, time to share joy with a life long friend.
Though these girls are going in many directions they will always have this connection.

I hope where ever life takes these young women they will always remember to stay forever young. My prayer is that they keep the spirit that is in their hearts today and do not let the flame of youth fade. Keep your faith strong and your aspiration high girls. Life has great gifts in store for you along with some sorrow. With faithful and loving hearts the joy will far outweigh any pain. Remember one another and the fun you shared together, and look back fondly on this time of your life.
We are proud of you Sadie.

Have a Saturday full of happy memories, P.
Pin It!

I'm thinking back a long time ago, when a young girl graduated in 1969. How scared I was and how excited at the same time. I cried because I didn't want to leave high school and yet I couldn't wait to be an "adult"! There will never be another time like this in her or your life! Y'all have done a wonderful job and she is just amazing and looks quite a lot like someone I know! Why wouldn't she stay forever young...just look at you!
