Another milestone in life. Graduating high school. This year has had so many things go on, way different than I ever imagined but even in the midst of the trials we had it also has been so good at the same time. The beautiful chaos of our life. The collateral beauty. I see it. We seek it. We choose it.
The beauty of all the moments of raising you the best we knew how. The beauty of all the moments of childhood to man hood. I am collecting them all in my mind and my heart.
My son who was once this precious little baby who I held in my arms, that I never imagined would grow up as quickly as you did. Here you are standing handsome and grown up. You are such a smart young man and you don’t even know all the potential you carry inside you. The world is waiting for you. This big huge world with so many wonders and so many hard ships but still so much beauty.
The world will try to kick you down sometimes as you know but you are so strong and I know all things we tried as your parents to teach you, are a great stepping stool to how amazing your life will be. It can be whatever you choose it to be. As long as you know you get to choose, that is what matters. If you don’t like the way things are going, change the direction, change your attitude. Change whatever it is you need to change. Just choose! God is your guide and He puts these dreams in our hearts and you are chasing yours. Choose this moment to embrace all the glory that it took 13 years of hard work and schooling to get to this day. And oh how excited I am that you have so much more to look forward to. The future is yours.#choosethismoment
My note to you son is….
As a mother I raised you the best I knew how. I am so proud of you son and raising you kids is the reason why we do what we do, day in and day and why I teach you that hard work pays off even when it all seems so tough. You have been through so much and you persevered through it all. This is a huge accomplishment. I believe in reaching for dreams God has put on our hearts….here is to your future, your goals and your dreams!! 🎓👨🏼🎓🎉#classof2017
